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.

The US will not achieve aims by exerting pressure and imposing sanctions on Turkey, he continued.

"We won't probably see any direct linkage with the Syrian crisis in the statements made by the U.S. side when it declares sanctions against our countries (Russia, Iran and Turkey)", he said.

"We will meet with our teams, including [Turkey's] new deputy foreign ministers and the vice president of the European Commission, Frans Timmermans, in the coming days", he added.

For his part, Lavrov said that the US' "unlawful and illegitimate" sanctions policy can not last for long.

President Donald Trump on Friday ramped up his attack on Turkey by doubling USA tariffs on Turkish aluminium and steel imports.

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.
