Cavusoglu: Turkey will retaliate if US slaps sanctions

Turkey will retaliate if the United States imposes sanctions on Ankara over its decision to purchase the Russian S-400 air defense systems, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu (pictured) said on Friday.

"One country cannot give instructions to another on how to act. The US should abandon this behavior," he said in an interview with NTV channel. "If the US takes steps against us, then we will be forced to do the same. Naturally, no one will silently look at it," Cavusoglu warned.

Earlier this week, the US House of Representatives approved a resolution that proposes sanctions on Turkey over the arms deal.
