Ankara (August 16, 2018): Turkey is ready to discuss its ongoing issues with the United States as long as there are no more threats from Donald Trump.
According to International news agency, Turkey is ready to discuss its ongoing issues with the United States as long as there are no threats, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said. According to details, Turkey hiked tariffs on imports of several key US products in retaliation for American sanctions against Ankara, on Wednesday.
According to international news reports, a court meanwhile rejected an appeal for the release of American pastor Andrew Brunson — whose detention for almost two years sparked the crisis — leaving no immediate solution to the Turkey-US row in sight.Spokesperson of White House said that Turkey’s decision to raise tariffs on American goods, are regrettable and a step in the wrong direction.
The US slapped sanctions on two Turkish officials earlier this month over a detained American pastor who is being tried on espionage and terror-related charges. The US also doubled tariffs last week over Turkey’s refusal to extradite a US pastor who is imprisoned there.
