Turkey will not abide by US sanctions on Iran: Erdogan

Turkey will not abide by the United States' sanctions on Iran, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday, describing Washington's move as aimed at unbalancing the world.

Erdogan’s comments to reporters in Ankara came a day after Washington re-imposed sanctions, abandoning a 2015 deal between world powers and Iran over its nuclear program, while temporarily allowing major customers including Turkey to keep buying crude from the Islamic Republic.
