  • In the US waiting for a decision on sanctions against Turkey in the near future

Kyiv: US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he expects an early decision on US sanctions against Turkey.

Reported by Reuters.

It was noted that some of them are directly related to the fact that Ankara detained an American pastor, who was released last week.

"We will make this decision soon," Pompeo stated.

Last Friday, a court in Turkey freed a prisoner of American pastor Andrew Brunson, whom Ankara accused of having links with terrorist organizations.

He denied espionage charges that threatened him with a 35-year prison sentence. 

Recall, American pastor Andrew Brunson, who was released after two years of house arrest, returned to the United States.
