With Iran, Turkey we defeated terrorists in Syria: Lavrov

Alexander Shcherbak  TAS

Russian Federation hopes that a reasonable approach will prevail in worldwide relations and countries will return to a depoliticized dialogue, Lavrov said. Both countries are also facing USA sanctions, so one idea they floated: Stick to their own national currencies for trade and avoid using the dollar at all.

He also noted that Moscow appreciates Turkey's rejection to join the anti-Russia sanctions by the West, saying the U.S.

The lira tumbled to a historical low on Friday after U.S. President Donald Trump authorized a 20 and 50 percent tariff hike on imported Turkish aluminum and steel, respectively.

Turkey and the United States are now experiencing rocky relations following Washington's imposition of sanctions on two government ministers who "played leading roles in the arrest and detention" of American pastor Andrew Brunson, who faces terrorism-related charges in Turkey.

Russian Federation seeks to use national currencies in trade with Turkey but the issue needs to be worked out meticulously, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Monday.

China Is Sending a Trade Envoy to Washington Amid Tariff Dispute
Since those talks ended, the USA and China have been locked in a trade standoff as they slapped tariffs on billions of dollars of each other's goods.

In a direct threat against the White House, Erdoğan warned USA president Trump, who signed off the sanctions, of unspecified consequences for punishing Turkey. The summit focusing on Syria and the wider region will be held in Istanbul on September 7. Back in June Russia and China came to an agreement: "Moscow and Beijing have agreed to raise the share of ruble-yuan trade settlements, in a joint agreement signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese leader Xi Jinping.The document envisages "further strengthening of the Russian-Chinese cooperation in the financial sector, promoting increase of the share of national currencies in trade payments, investments and financing, expanding collaboration in such fields as payment systems and insurance".

"We need to determine these terrorist (groups) and eliminate them with intelligence and military forces", he said in Ankara ahead of talks with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov, whose country has backed Assad militarily.

"If the U.S. wants to continue being a reputable country, it can not do so with these impositions", he said, referring to the sanctions.

Lavrov called illegal the restrictions applied by Washington against different countries, which respond to its desire to dominate and dictate policy around the world to obtain unilateral benefits, he warned.
