In Caracas, Turkey slams sanctions on Venezuela

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has blasted the economic sanctions imposed against Venezuela, vowing efforts to strengthen bilateral trade ties amid the two countries’ tense relations with the United States.

“Political problems cannot be resolved by punishing an entire nation,” said the Turkish head of state.
