It’s been threatened with U.S. sanctions over the deployment of Russian S-400 weapons.
Now Turkey says it is evaluating reciprocal action against what it considers a hostile attack.
Turkey’s military procurement agency has had its export licences and authorisations banned by the U.S.
The organisation’s top officials will also face asset freezes and visa restrictions.
The long-delayed move comes as U.S. President-elect Joe Biden prepares to take office.
Turkish President has said the sanctions won’t stop his country from building up its defences.
So, how will this play out between these NATO allies?
