(Worthy News) - Turkey’s Islamist government vowed late Wednesday to respond to the imposition of U.S. sanctions against two of its government ministers over the treatment of an American pastor, and one of the targeted ministers shrugged off the move, saying he had no financial interests in the United States.

The imposition of U.S. Treasury sanctions against the justice and interior ministers “will not go unanswered,” tweeted Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu. “We cannot resolve our problems unless the US administration realizes that it cannot achieve its unlawful demands through this method.”

His said in a statement that Ankara “will respond” to Washington’s “aggressive attitude,” and urged the U.S. administration to reverse the “wrong decision.” [ Source: CNS News (Read More...) ]
