Turkey is seeking a formula to ease tensions with the United States before the next hearing of the trial of American pastor Andrew Brunson on October 12, opposition newspaper Cumhuriyet said .

Relations between Turkey and the United States are expected to recover if Brunson imprisoned in Turkey since October 2016 and facing terrorism charges, were released at the hearing. The United States imposed sanctions on Turkey last month over its detention of Brunson and other imprisoned U.S. citizens.
