Ankara to continue supplying Iranian gas despite US sanctions

Ankara will continue supplying Iranian gas to Turkey despite Washington's intentions to reintroduce sanctions against Tehran, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.

"They imposed sanctions to Iran. What happened? Did Iran collapse? When [former U.S. President Barack] Obama told us back then, I said 'I am sorry, but we are purchasing natural gas from Iran. How else will I supply natural gas if I cannot buy it?'" President Erdogan stressed.

"If the U.S. does not change this attitude they should not forget they will lose a sincere and strong partner like Turkey," Hurriyet Daily News cited him as saying.
