Turkey condemns the possibility of American sanctions for detaining a U.S. pastor, saying its ‘unacceptable.’
A Turkish government official said the decision to detain American pastor Andrew Brunson falls within the country’s jurisdiction, in a statement Thursday.
The official went on to say the U.S. should reconsider its threat before further damaging its relationship with Turkey.
This comes just hours after President Trump said Brunson is ‘suffering greatly’ and threatened imposing sanctions on its NATO ally.
