Turkey’s unique friction with America

Turkey has started a competitive friction with America. Turkey has caught an American priest for spying two years back and was inside prison. Trump has asked Turkey to release that priest else they will put restrictions on Turkey. The actual restrictions which Trump wants to put on Turkey is due to Turkey’s rejection of America’s call to stop trading with Iran. Turkey has replied that we don’t listen to both; neither will we release the priest nor we will stop trading with Iran. As a result of this America has put restrictions on two Ministers of Turkey. Turkey has replied to this practically which is known as tit for tat. It is like giving instant reply in the same tone and language. Turkish government has also put restriction on two American Ministers; one is Minister of Interior and other Minister of law. They put restrictions on two Turkish Ministers and Turkey put the same on two American Ministers. Erdogan has asked to freeze the assets of these Ministers. The reply which Turkey is giving is very strange and as I said before only Turkey can do this as Erdogan is doing unique politics in the region. The Ministers on which Turkey has imposed restrictions these two ministers do not exist in America. There is no Minister of Interior position in America and there is no Minister of Law instead there is Secretary of State who manages the law. Thus the restrictions which Turkey has placed are not the persons present and they do not have any assets in Turkey. There is Minister of Interior in Turkey on whom America has imposed sanctions but in America there is no Minister of Interior in America on which Turkey has imposed sanctions on someone that is not present. This way Turkey has taken revenge. This is the politics of Erdogan.
