We will impose sanctions on the United States

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has made clear that US sanctions regarding Russia's missile defense system S400 and natural gas pipeline will be answered in full.


The US Congress has approved imposing new economic sanctions on Turkey to block the S400 missile defense system from Russia and a move to abandon the Turkish stream pipeline. When asked about Erdogan's sanctions during an interview, he said that the purchase of the S400 had already been signed and now the United States is saying that we will impose sanctions on it. In response, we will impose sanctions on the United States in response.

Earlier, the United States had said it would ban the S400 and now announced it would impose sanctions on the gas pipeline. Turkey is not a country that is silent on such sanctions, we will respond very strongly to these sanctions.
