Turkey is ready to respond to any us sanctions because of the operation in Syria. On Wednesday, October 16, said Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu during a speech in Parliament, reports NTV.

“In today's situation, our resolve will not be violated by any sanctions or threats. We see trump, because of the pressure of his establishment, making some moves against us. We will definitely give a proportionate response to these sanctions and take appropriate measures, “ the Minister said.

He called the policy of the American leadership “ one-sided and unable to change the principles of Turkey.”

“When ensuring our national security is on the agenda, everything else is trifles,” Cavusoglu added.

Earlier it was reported that US President Donald Trump signed a decree on the imposition of sanctions against Turkey.

So far, the list of measures included the ministries of defense and energy of Turkey, as well as the heads of these ministries and the Deputy Chairman of the ruling Justice and Development Party in Turkey.
