Turkey: Erdogan to impose tit-for-tat sanctions on two US officials

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that he will freeze the assets of two American officials in response to the US Treasury imposing sanctions on Turkey, while speaking in Ankara on Saturday. Erdogan said Turkey has shown 'patience', but 'cannot be disciplined with this understanding and approach.' «The whole thing is the manifestation of the Evangelist, Zionist understanding. This is... Еще the truth. Trump has been deceived big time,» he added. On Wednesday, the US Treasury announced sanctions on Turkish justice and interior ministers over the continued detention of American pastor Andrew Craig Brunson. The pastor was arrested two years ago over alleged links to the outlawed Kurdish PKK party and to the Fetullah Gulen movement which Erdogan claims was behind the 2016 attempted coup. Turkey will impose tit-for-tat measures on the US justice and interior ministers should they have assets in the country.
