US sanctions imposed due to Ankara’s purchase of the Russian S-400 air defense systems will not affect Turkey, Turkish parliament speaker Mustafa Sentop said.

According to him, American sanctions will not affect Turkey in any way, including from an economic point of view, Gazeta reported.

Sanctions will not affect the defense potential of the country, as the defense industry is quite developed in Turkey, the parliamentarian stressed.

According to Sentop, the imposition of sanctions is one of the main instruments of US pressure on countries with which it is not possible to establish the desired relationship. However, Turkey pursues an independent policy that cannot be influenced by US decisions, said the speaker.
