Turkey to be hard hit by U.S. sanctions against Iran: analysts

Trump’s hawkish stance  on Iran is likely to complicate trade, finance and  relations with US.


Noting the sanctions will cover all of Iran’s state and financial institutions, he said any country cooperating with them could also face U.S. punishment.

“In such a case, Turkey would be the country that would be most severely affected,” he added.

Should Ankara agree to act in line with the U.S. sanctions, it would risk losing Iran’s possible cooperation against the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party, which has been fighting against the Turkish state for over three decades.
