EDELMAN: US SHOULD CLOSE DOWN A TURKISH CONSULATE

Eric Edelman a former United States ambassador to Turkey spoke at the Brookings Institution suggested sanctions on Turkey including closing a Turkish consulate in the US. Edelman spoke at a panel on Turkey and said President Erdoğan applies a sort of hostage diplomacy against the United States and exemplified the arrest of priest Brunson and American consular staff.

Edelman said, “President Erdoğan constantly fosters American hostility by using the media in the hands of his relatives and friends.” Edelman said America should put pressure on Turkey in certain issues and told one of the steps the US can take might be closing down a Turkish consulate in the United States as they did before for Russia.
