UNITED NATIONS, Sept 25 – President Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday Turkey could not remain silent over the use of sanctions as weapons when the country is in a bitter standoff with the United States over the fate of a Christian pastor detained by Ankara.

“None of us can remain silent to the arbitrary cancellation of commercial agreements and the use of economic sanctions as weapons,” Erdogan said in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly.

“We are in favor of solving our problems through conducting a constructive dialogue on equal terms.” (Writing by Parisa Hafezi Editing by James Dalgleish)
