Mnuchin:”The United States is Considering Placing Sanctions on Turkey “

The United States is considering placing sanctions on Turkey over its purchase of Russian-built S-400 missile defence systems, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Monday.

Washington expelled Turkey from the F-35 fighter jet programme in July after the first delivery of S-400s was received. The U.S. Congress has also passed bills requiring the government to impose measures on Turkey under 2017 legislation designed to discourage countries from defence partnerships with Russia.
