Turkey says removal from F-35 program will damage ties with US

Turkey said a decision by the united States to remove the country from the F-35 fighter jet program, "will irreparably damage relations", according to a statement by its Foreign Ministry on Wednesday.
The unilateral move by the US "neither complies with the spirit of alliance nor is it based on legitimate grounds," the ministry was quoted as saying by Anadolu agency.

No need to take EU steps against Turkey seriously, says foreign minister

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Tuesday there is no need to take very seriously decisions made by the European Union to curb contacts and funding for Ankara over its drilling for gas and oil off Cyprus.
He made the comment at a news conference, broadcast by CNN Turk, in the North Macedonian capital Skopje.
