European ministers will discuss Turkey on July 13

Turkey will respond if the EU imposes additional sanctions against Ankara, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Monday after meeting with the head of the European Foreign Ministry, Reuters reports.

The French Foreign Minister said that EU ministers will discuss Turkey on July 13, and added that new sanctions against Ankara can be considered in addition to the steps taken in connection with Turkey drilling wells in the economic zone of Cyprus.

“If the EU takes additional decisions against Turkey, we will have to respond,” Cavusoglu said at a press conference with EU Foreign Minister Joseph Borrell in Ankara.
