Western countries are concerned about the rapprochement between Russia and Turkey in the areas of trade and energy. This is reported by the Financial Times.
Six anonymous officials expressed their dismay at statements by the presidents of the two countries about their intention to expand cooperation in the field of energy and trade.
“We are trying to get the Turks to pay attention to our concerns,” the officials admit.
The Financial Times recalled that the US administration has warned many times that countries that help Moscow avoid restrictive measures will face “secondary sanctions.” Europe is more reserved in this regard.
