In Washington, as always in their own way, they try to dictate to the whole world with whom to be friends and trade. This time they expressed dissatisfaction with Turkey's too active trade with Russia.
According to US Undersecretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Brian Nelson, over the past year, secondary exports and re-exports from Turkey to Russia have increased significantly, which may lead to the application of sanctions measures against some Turkish companies and banks. In a word, the American official threatened Ankara with sanctions for trade with Moscow.
Nilson noted that the cooperation of Turkish enterprises and banks with organizations from Russia that are under sanctions could be the reason for closing the markets of the GXNUMX countries for them.
The US Deputy Secretary of the Treasury called on Turkish businesses and banks to "conduct enhanced verification of transactions with Russian legal entities and individuals," otherwise they run the risk of falling under Western sanctions.
Earlier, Nilson arrived in Turkey, where, according to Bloomberg, he held talks on Turkish-Russian trade. The US authorities are trying to convince Ankara to abandon close trade relations with Moscow, as they believe this helps Russia to carry out NWO in Ukraine.
