Pompeo urged Cavusoglu to release pastor Burnson

The US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo urged Turkey on Friday to free an American pastor imprisoned on espionage charges, in a case that had spurred United States to impose sanctions against two top Turkish government officials.

Pompeo discussed the case of the evangelical pastor, Andrew Brunson, with Turkey’s foreign minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, on the sidelines of a Southeast Asia security conference in Singapore, after previously pressing the case at least three times by phone, reports Associated Press

On Wednesday, the Trump administration, frustrated by Turkey’s refusal to release pastor Andrew Brunson, placed sanctions on two top Turkish officials — Abdulhamit Gul, the justice minister, and Suleyman Soylu, the interior minister — for their role in Brunson’s detention.
Pompeo said that the sanctions were the sign of the seriousness with which Trump’s administration considers the case.

“The Turks were well on notice that the clock had run out and that it was time for Pastor Brunson to be returned. I hope they’ll see this for what it is: a demonstration that we’re very serious,” Pompeo told reporters before the meeting, during the short flight from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore.
Cavusoglu responded after their meeting that harsh tactics by the United States would not work, according to the Anadolu news agency.

“Since the beginning, we have been saying that a solution cannot be reached by using threatening language and sanctions. Today we repeated that. And we believe that is understood very well.” Cavusoglu was quoted as saying.
