Iran’s secretary of state Javed Zarif has said he strongly supports US sanctions on Turkey. He made a post on his Twitter on Tuesday (December 15).
In the same tweet, Javed said that the us has disregarded law of nations out of addiction to sanctions.
The Trump administration imposed sanctions on Turkey (December 14) over its purchase of a state-of-the-art S-400 defense system from Russia and a long-term deal with a non-NATO country.
The U.S. State Department says Turkey’s acquisition of the S-400 from Russia runs counter to NATO policy and a threat to its allies.
The U.S. State Department announced Monday that sanctions targeting the logistics and armaments sectors of Turkey’s defense industry are imposed.
Earlier last year, the Trump administration suspended its decision to provide F-35 fighter jets to Turkey.
US government has also imposed sanctions on Ismail Damir, chairman of Turkey’s defense industry, and three other officials within the industry. After the tragic defeat of Armenia by Turkish drones in Azerbaijan, the unhappy attitude of the us towards Turkey became stronger.
The sanctions imposed by the administration folks President Donald Trump, who is awaiting exit after losing the election, will have an impression on Turkey-US relations. especially , the position of the 2 countries depends on what quite relationship President-elect Joe Biden will build with Ankara.
