Turkish deputy premier said on Monday that a technical delegation would arrive in Turkey on Tuesday in regard to deployment of Patriot missile defense system in Turkey.

The technical delegation would inform NATO on sites for the possible deployment of Patriot missile defense system and the number of the systems to be installed, Deputy PM and Government Spokesman Bulent Arinc told reporters after the meeting of the Council of Ministers.
Replying to a question, Arinc said, "Turkey is a member of NATO and we think that these missiles needed to be installed only for defense purposes."
Answering a question on tension between Baghdad and the regional administration in the north of Iraq, he said that there were conflicts between them and 10-15 people were killed in clashes. "We consider that these problems should be solved through diplomacy not by armed clashes," he said.
Upon a question on ceasefire between Israel and Palestine, Arinc said that ceasefire process was a challenging one, stating that everyone knew that Turkey made great contributions to it. Turkey played a very important and constructive role during this process, he said, adding that they were pleased that bloodshed ended there.
