Erdogan hopes Trump not to impose sanctions over S-400

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he hopes U.S. President Donald Trump will not impose sanctions on Turkey over its planned purchase of Russia's missile defense system S-400.

Speaking at a news conference for foreign media in Istanbul, the Turkish leader said the U.S. should think very carefully before imposing sanctions on Turkey, a NATO member, and if it went ahead with sanctions, Ankara was going to retaliate, Reuters reported.

Erdogan said he enjoyed good relations with Trump but that Turkey’s ties with people who worked below him were ‘very, very different’ and that teams on both sides often disagreed on a number of issues, including the S-400s.
