Trump’s jubilation in economic hardship on Turkey shameful: Zarif

دیدار هیات موسسه مطالعاتی والدای روسیه با ظریف

Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif condemned US President’s latest measures against Turkey.

“Trump's jubilation in inflicting economic hardship on its NATO ally Turkey is shameful. The US has to rehabilitate its addiction to sanctions & bullying or entire world will unite—beyond verbal condemnations—to force it to. We’ve stood with neighbors before, and will again now,” Mr. Zarif said in a tweet on Saturday.

US President Donald Trump announced on Friday that he would increase duties on steel and aluminum from Turkey and expressed his satisfaction with the issue.

“I have just authorized a doubling of Tariffs on Steel and Aluminum with respect to Turkey as their currency, the Turkish Lira, slides rapidly downward against our very strong Dollar! Aluminum will now be 20% and Steel 50%. Our relations with Turkey are not good at this time!” he said in a tweet.
