Turkey and Russia have both blasted President Donald Trump’s latest sanction round Iran and promise to find ways to defy the punitive economic measures.
“We will not obey such sanctions,” said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday, adding that his government sees Washington’s movement as “violating the global balance,” reported the Russian press agency Tass. The Turkish leader stressed that the sanctions “violate the norms of international law” and he does not wish “to live in an imperialist world”.
Voices of similar sentiments promised Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Tuesday that Moscow would find ways to circumvent sanctions and continue economic relations with Tehran. The leading Russian diplomat also called the Washington sanctions “unacceptable methods”. Moscow Times reported.
