Turkey reiterates refusal to release detained United States pastor

Stocks emerging market currencies rise on planned U.S.-China trade talks

The 3rd Penal Court in the western province of İzmir rejected the appeal on August 17, ruling for the continuation of Brunson's house arrest, as well as a travel ban imposed on him.

Local Turkish social media has been awash this week with footage of people smashing their iPhones in protest of US President Donald Trump and his recent sanctions on Turkey. "He's not a spy".

Mr. Trump wrote in a tweet late Thursday: "We will pay nothing for the release of an innocent man, but we are cutting back on Turkey!" "So, we haven't seen the last of that".

The Trump administration said it would use a section of U.S. law that allows for tariffs on national security grounds to impose the increased duties.

Doha has pledged to offer loans worth 15 billion USA dollars to help Ankara ride out its lira crisis.

Brunson is under house arrest after spending almost two years in a Turkish prison under what the Trump administration has said are bogus allegations of aiding terrorists. Trump, who counts evangelical Christians among his core supporters, has increasingly championed the pastor's case.

He was also charged with supporting the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which was designated as a terrorist organization by Turkey and the U.S.

Trump later tweeted that he had no intention of paying the Turkish government for Brunson's release.

Many countries have been the target of similar United States trade measures, Albayrak said, and Turkey would navigate this period with other parties such as Germany, Russia and China. He called Brunson "a great patriot hostage". Turkey also maintains a small military base in Qatar.

U.S. Treasury chief Steve Mnuchin earlier said the U.S. could put more sanctions on Turkey.

Washington and Ankara have exchanged tit-for-tat tariffs in Trump's attempt to persuade President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to give up Brunson, who denies charges that he was involved in a coup attempt in Turkey two years ago.

The 50-year-old faces 35 years in prison, which would amount to a life sentence.

Qatar has promised to make a Dollars 15 billion direct investment in Turkey, badly hit by a currency crisis amid a widening diplomatic standoff with the United States, officials said.
