Comment of the Press Service Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan on imposing of unilateral sanctions by the United States against Turkey
We condemn the decision of the U.S. to impose unilateral sanctions on Turkey for the acquisition of S-400 air defense systems, and we consider this step against Turkey as the application of double standards.
It is unfortunate that the United States, an ally, did not respond to Turkey's proposal to resolve this issue through dialogue and diplomacy.
As always, Azerbaijan stands by Turkey and supports its position based on international law and justice.
We call for urgent steps to be taken to resolve this issue, which includes Turkey's national security, through dialogue.
