Turkey, US agree to work together to resolve issues

August 3, 2018

1. Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Friday that Ankara and Washington will continue to work together to resolve their issues.

“There might be problems between our countries and there will also be dissidence. However, Turkey always wishes to resolve these issues via diplomacy, dialogue and mutual understanding,” Cavusoglu told reporters after meeting his US counterpart Mike Pompeo in Singapore.

The meeting came on the sidelines of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) foreign ministers’ meeting.

Cavusoglu called his meeting with Pompeo “constructive”. He said they had agreed to work in close cooperation and continue dialogue.

“Since the beginning, we have said that a solution cannot be reached by using threatening language and sanctions,” the Turkish top diplomat added.

The United States on Wednesday imposed sanctions on Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu and Justice Minister Abdulhamit Gul for not releasing US Pastor Andrew Craig Brunson, who faces terrorism charges in Turkey.

The Foreign Ministry strongly protested against the US Treasury Department’s decision, calling on Washington to reverse its “wrong decision”.

Cavusoglu said the meeting discussed steps both countries could take to solve the existing problems, adding that it cannot be expected to solve all these crises or problems in one meeting.
