Turkey will not act against Russia, says deputy PM


Turkey is not planning to act against Russia, the deputy premier and government spokesman said on Monday after the expulsion of dozens of Russian diplomats across Europe and in the U.S as part of a coordinated response to the poisoning of an ex-Russian spy in the U.K, APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency.

 

“There is a positive and good relation between Turkey and Russia. In this sense, Turkey is not contemplating on taking any decision against Russia,” Bekir Bozdag said after a cabinet meeting in the capital Ankara.

 

On Monday, 14 EU member states have expelled dozens of Russian diplomats in an orchestrated reaction, over the poisoning of ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in the U.K.

 

At least 45 Russian diplomats have been expelled across Europe so far.

 

The U.S. also expelled 60 diplomats and ordered the closure of Moscow’s consulate in Seattle.
