WASHINGTON, August 4. /Basereporter.com/. Sales representative Jeffrey Gerish said that U.S. authorities are reviewing the participation of Turkey in the program to import preferences (GSP). This is stated in a press release published on the website of the United States trade representative.
“The trump is concerned about Turkey’s compliance with criteria to access GSP said Jeris. We hope that Turkey will work with us to resolve the differences that led to the revision of their access to duty-free U.S. market”.
The statement also noted that Turkey has imposed additional tariffs of $1.78 bn on imports from the United States.
Earlier on 1 August, the US Treasury Department imposed sanctions against the Minister of internal Affairs of Turkey, Suleyman Soylu, and Minister of justice, Gul Abdulhamit due to the fact that Ankara is not allowed to return home American pastor Andrew Branson. This was done in the framework adopted by the U.S. Congress in 2016, the so-called global Magnitsky act is directed against persons, involved, according to Washington, of corruption and violating human rights. As noted by the press Secretary of the White house Sarah Sanders, restrictions were introduced on the instructions of the President of the United States Donald trump.
