Turkey will freeze the assets of Ministers of 2 States in response to Washington’s sanctions against Ankara. This was stated by President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan, writes Hurriyet Daily News.
“The last step taken by the US in the incident with the pastor Brunson in Izmir, does not correspond to a strategic partnership. The United States expressed this grave disrespect,” said Erdogan.
“Until last night we showed patience. Today I instruct my friends to freeze the assets of American Ministers of justice and home Affairs in Turkey. Those who think they can force Turkey to take a step back, resorting to threatening statements and absurd sanctions shows that they do not know the Turkish nation,” he added.
