Turkey FM says told Pompeo threats and sanctions won’t work

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on Friday said he told US counterpart Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that threats and sanctions will not work after Washington targeted Turkish ministers over the detention of an American pastor, AFP reported.

"We have said from the start that the other side's threatening language and sanctions will not get any result. We repeated this today," Cavusoglu told reporters in Singapore after their meeting.
