Turkey says to take every initiative to protect firms from U.S. sanctions

ANKARA - Turkey will take every initiative to protect its firms from US sanctions, Ankara's foreign ministry spokesman said on Friday, a day after the United States imposed sanctions on several Iranian and Turkish companies in a move targeting Iranian airlines.
Hami Aksoy also told a news conference that Turkey had fulfilled all requirements to procure Lockheed Martin's F-35 jets from the United States and that Ankara expected all sides to carry out their responsibilities.
A US Senate committee passed its version of a $716 billion defense policy bill on Thursday, including a measure to prevent Turkey from purchasing the F-35 jets.
