The Turkish president considers this decision to be disrespectful to his NATO partner.
As the Telegram channel “Turkey’s Agenda” writes, Erdogan commented on Trump’s decision to support sanctions against Turkey over the S-400.
“Let’s see what steps Trump will take before leaving the presidency, but we have not had any problems for 4 years. On the contrary, I have taken much more positive steps on many issues”, – Erdogan said.
He also recalled that Obama called him one of the most important among the five friends-world leaders.
“Biden is also a Democrat. What happened that they suddenly decided to impose CAATSA sanctions [The Law on Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions]”, – the Turkish president said.
