Amid tension, Trump and Turkey's Erdogan agree to strengthen ties

Amid tension, Trump and Turkey's Erdogan agree to strengthen ties”

"We have repeatedly told the American officials that we have sensitive ties with Iran", Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday before leaving Istanbul for Kazakh capital city of Astana. Turkey regards the Kurdish militias as "terrorists". Turkey blames Gulen, who has lived in Pennsylvania since 1999, for last year's failed coup.

He noted that Kazakhstan is one of the important strategic partners of Turkey, according to a message from Turkish presidential office.

The call was notable for its timing, coming a day after Erdogan described a USA prosecutor's indictment against Turkey's former economy minister as being politically motivated and tantamount to an attack on Ankara.

But he has said that, if the opportunity arises, he will meet with Trump on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, which begins September 19 in NY.

U.S. authorities have also charged several Turks with violating financial sanctions against Iran, including former economy minister Zafer Caglayan.

"The US may be a big nation, but being a just nation is something else".
