Turkey's defence deal with Russia and Erdogan's balancing act

Turkey holds its largest annual defence show, but disputes over Russian-made weapons are overshadowing the event.

    Turkey's largest annual defence show has become a political balancing act, with the United States unhappy about the country's purchase of Russian weapons.

    But President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says the ongoing war in Syria means he needs to take all available measures to ensure the security of his nation.
