Foreign policy of the Donald Trump administration
The International Coordinating Committee Justice for Cyprus (PSEKA) welcomed the imposition of sanctions against Turkey over its purchase of Russian ground-to-air defenses, as part of the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA).
The sanctions targeted the top Turkish defense development body, its president and three employees.
This would effectively force the outgoing US President to impose penalties that have long been prescribed by law, writes the magazine "Foreign Policy".
Capitol Hill has long been pressuring Trump to impose mandatory sanctions on Turkey, after Ankara bought the Russian S-400 anti-missile system in July 2019.
President Donald Trump said on June 15 he is ordering a major reduction in U.S. troop strength in Germany, a move widely criticized by members of his own party as a gift to Russia and a threat to U.S. national security.
"We're putting the number down to 25,000 soldiers,'' Trump said at the White House.
US President Donald Trump revealed Monday night that the country is ready to withdraw from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Trade Organization (WTO). Trump said it would make the final decision by the end of this week.
The president noted that he was dissatisfied with the work of both organizations, claiming that his country had been "abused" by both.
