No: 316, 29 October 2019, Press Release Regarding The Draft Bill (h.r. 4695) Adopted By The U.s. House Of Representatives Envisaging Sanctions Against Turkey On The Basis Of Operation Peace Spring
We strongly condemn the adoption of a draft bill that envisages sanctions against Turkey on the basis of Operation Peace Spring in the U.S. House of Representatives today (29 October).
The draft bill, which targets our senior officials and our Armed Forces, is incompatible with the spirit of our NATO Alliance, and contradicts with the agreement reached on Syria with the U.S. Administration on 17 October.
The U.S. officials, who have been even disregarding the difference between an Ally country and a terrorist organization and have been carelessly legitimizing a terrorist with their rhetoric and actions in the past days, should understand that they cannot achieve anything with the threats of unilateral sanctions.
We urge, the U.S. Congress, not to exploit bilateral issues for domestic political consumption and to act in line with the spirit of our Alliance and partnership. We call on the U.S. Administration to take necessary steps to prevent the further deterioration of our relations.
