US-Turkey relations ‘like marriage’ – State Department spokeswoman Nauert

Relations between Turkey and the US are “like marriage,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told journalists, adding that sometimes these relationships have “a good day” and sometimes “a bad day.”

During a State Department press briefing on Tuesday, Nauert was asked about Turkish gold trader Reza Zarrab. Zarrab was arrested in the US back in 2016 and was later charged with money laundering and evading US sanctions on Iran. His trial will start in late November. The Turkish government says that the case against the businessman is a “clear plot against Turkey.”
