Erdogan Threatens Reprisal Against Any U.S. Missile Sanction

Updated on

Turkey will retaliate against any U.S. sanctions imposed after it takes delivery of a missile-defense system from Russia, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said, showing no signs of backing off from a dispute that has roiled a critical alliance.

“We would have our own sanctions against them,” Erdogan said in a meeting with foreign journalists on Thursday, without elaborating. While relations with U.S. President Donald Trump “are really good,” he said, “our ties with people working under him are far more different.”
