(Worthy News) - A bipartisan group of US senators said Wednesday they have agreed on far-reaching sanctions to be slapped on NATO ally Turkey if its forces do not withdraw from neighboring Syria.
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said he and Democrat Chris Van Hollen of Maryland are introducing legislation that would freeze all US assets of Turkey’s political leadership — including President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, his vice president and the defense minister.
It would also impose sanctions on entities that do business with Turkey’s military, or with oil and gas companies that service its armed forces. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
