ANKARA, May 15 (Reuters) - Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Wednesday Turkey is discussing with the United States details of a working group Ankara has proposed setting up to look into the impact of its purchase of Russian S-400 missile defence systems.

Tensions have risen between Turkey and the United States over Ankara's decision to buy the S-400s, which are not compatible with NATO systems.

Cavusoglu said that stopping or postponing the delivery of the S-400s is not on the agenda. (Reporting by Ece Toksabay; Writing by Sarah Dadouch Editing by Dominic Evans)
