US sanctions hurting its own reputation | Turkey

M - Russia sees intentions of the United States and the West in general to impede the Astana process for the Syrian settlement, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told Tass after taking part in a session of Turkey's ambassadors and permanent envoys to global organizations.

Erdogan noted that the U.S. will lose "a strong partner" if it continues with its pressures for the release of the USA pastor Andrew Brunson, who was accused of terrorism and espionage due to his alleged participation in the attempted coup d'état in Turkey on July 15, 2016.

The five-day ambassadors' conference is hosting 249 Turkish ambassadors and two charge d'affaires, as well as a number of foreign diplomats.
