ISTANBUL - Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Thursday Turkey would never tolerate threats from anybody after US President Donald Trump warned of "large sanctions" unless Ankara freed an American pastor on trial in Turkey on terrorism charges.

"No one dictates Turkey. We will never tolerate threats from anybody. Rule of law is for everyone; no exception," Cavusoglu wrote on Twitter.
