This was announced on October 23 by US President Donald Trump, calling on other countries to help Ankara strengthen control over its border with Syria.
вЂњI ordered Finance Minister Stephen Mnuchin to abolish all the sanctions imposed on October 14,вЂќ he said, speaking in the White House...
At the same time, Washington is ready to restore sanctions if AnkaraвЂ™s actions against Syria are unsatisfactory.
вЂњThe sanctions will be lifted until something happens that we donвЂ™t like,вЂќ Trump added.
He clarified that the United States could significantly increase customs duties on Turkish imports.
Recall that, in addition to the United States, other countries also went to restrictive measures. For example, the European Union, Canada, has imposed an arms embargo on Turkey due to a military campaign in Syria.
