(Worthy News) – A move by House lawmakers to try to block the sales of U.S. arms to Turkey could lead to retaliation by the country, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu warned on Sunday.
Such a provision was included in the proposed fiscal 2019 National Defense Authorization Act, a $717 billion defense policy bill. Under the legislation, U.S. sales to Turkey would be halted while the Department of Defense compiles a report for Congress on the relationship between the two countries.
“If the United States imposes sanctions on us or takes such a step, Turkey will absolutely retaliate,” Cavusoglu said, according to a Reuters report. “What needs to be done is the U.S. needs to let go of this.” [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
