Spokesperson for US State Department Heather Nauert has spoken about the tension that sparked between the US and Turkey over trial of Pastor Andrew Craig Brunson.
Speaking at the daily press briefing, Nauert also responded to questions about the visit of Turkish delegation, headed by Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Sedat Önal.
According to a report by Amerika’nın Sesi, Nauert said, “The US has “a very broad relationship with Turkey and a host of issues that we talk about with the Turkish government whenever we do meet”.
“Yesterday, we had a wide-ranging conversation with Turkish government officials. We made it clear that Pastor Brunson needs to be returned home.
“Much of this though, we’re not going to negotiate in public,” said Nauert. “I would say we would define progress as Pastor Brunson being brought home.” (EKN/TK)
