WASHINGTON - Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday Turkey had already significantly reduced its oil imports from Iran, which is under the choke of U.S. sanctions, and further cutbacks would depend on his country's energy needs.

"On crude oil, there has been a significant decrease in the amount of oil we import from Iran ... As to whether we would cut back any further, it will depend on our need. Time will tell," Erdogan said at the Brookings Institution in Washington.
