Turkey, US Reach Preliminary Agreement on Sanctions Crisis: Sources  <a class="hashtagger" href="https://sigmaturkey.com/tag/turkeysanctions/">#TurkeySanctions</a>

Turkey and the United States have reached a preliminary agreement after the crisis over the arrest of Pastor Andrew Brunson that lead to sanctions, diplomatic sources said.

According to sources speaking to daily Hürriyet, the agreement covers “certain subjects” and a Turkish delegation is scheduled to visit Washington DC in the coming days to “finalize the details.”

Brunson, who led a Protestant church in the Aegean city of İzmir, is at the center of one of the most serious crises in relations between the NATO allies in years.

The pastor was moved to house arrest last month after nearly two years in jail on terror-related charges, but the change only increased tensions.

The U.S. responded to the failure to fully free Brunson by hitting two top Turkish ministers with sanctions, prompting Ankara to announce a similar measure.
