11:25 pm
president donald trump tweeted that he was doubling steel and aluminum tariffs on turkey saying our relations with turkey are not good at this time the latest move comes during a diplomatic route over this man an american pastor named andrew bronson he was accused of spying for the united states arrested and jailed in the aftermath of the twenty sixteen coup the u.s. denies the charges defended by even jellicoe christians like vice president mike pence pastor andrew bronson is an innocent man. there is no credible evidence against him after july nato meeting trump thought he had a deal to secure brunson's release instead brunson was placed under house arrest while his trial continued outraging trump the u.s. responded leveling sanctions against the turkish interior and justice minister the dispute over the pastor is just part of an escalating feud between trump and. last

turkish president has written an opinion piece in the new york times warning that the u.s. must respect turkey's sovereignty or their partnership could be in jeopardy he said at a time when evil continues to nerk around the world unilateral actions against turkey by the united states are of decades will only serve to undermine american interests and security. before it is too late washington must give up the misguided notion that our relationship can be as symmetrical and come to terms with the fact that turkey has altoona divs failure to reverse this trend of unilateralism and disrespect will require us to start looking for new friends and allies so let's bring our guests now joining us from rally in north carolina is robert pierson former u.s. ambassador to turkey in ankara routine at them and the rector of foreign policy
11:28 pm
research a defunct asian for political economic and social research also known as sita and from new york by skype emitter beside the sea oh and co-founder of foreign policy interrupted an organization to increase female voices in the media was a focus on foreign policy coverage thank you all for joining us robert pierson let me start with you. pastor bronson was actually detained twenty months twenty one months ago in after mass of the failed coup why is that an issue now. it's been an issue since then there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that's credible if you read the text of the testimony against him it is absolutely not believable he's supposed to be cooperating with terrorist and at the same time he's supposed to be cooperating with mr arrogance closest political ally for ten years so there is
11:29 pm
a solution to this problem if i may say so it's very straightforward mr bronson should be allowed to return to the united states for medical care and the charges can be left as they are but mr bronson can go home with his family and to his family and secondly on the economic side two simple steps are required one mr iraq can work with the group he described his press conference yesterday to announce a new reform program for the turkish economy based on turkey's own principles and one would be to use interest rates temporarily to re firm the lehrer's value and secondly to undertake a thorough reform of the turkish economy along principles that would help turkey be more competitive in the international arena and that would allow both countries to then turn to the issues that are in front of them without having to end up this
11:30 pm
process by pointing the other by making the other one responsible for the damage so i hope that they'll consider these three steps because they could easily end this issue and we could go on to the more serious strategic issues that face us so. there is also a second u.s. citizen who is detained and tricky he is a dual national tricky to kish american ease and scientists but we hear nothing about him so is there more really than just the fate of pastor branson that is at stake here yeah i mean we haven't heard. the trumpet ministration talk about sarah connor who is the nasa scientist as you said it's all turkish and american citizens let's put this into perspective you know and they're up to twentieth century the united states and turkey had very much a a relationship based on geopolitics where it was on
11:31 pm
a wide perspective and they looked at what is going to benefit both countries what you've seen over the past two weeks flare up precisely between trump an error once the individuals and cells is two individuals who are teaching cheap political shots domestic points the the the plane for releasing it into bronze and was really it's really a priest for to appeal to donald trump's conservative christian base here in the united states and it's precisely what we don't hear not only about the nasa scientists but we also don't hear about the three turkish nationals that are being held the three turkish nationals that have been working at u.s. consulates throughout to ricky and are being held on the scene charges the wrong brunson has been. detained not so you think that the release of pastor bronson could play in the midterm elections. you know i
11:32 pm
i definitely think that i don't think of the trumpet ministration as thinking that widely i think that any six any political points that they can score i think right now you have to also take a look at trump on the world stage mean he really took a lot of flak for his appearance with a lot of your in helsinki and the way that he deflected. you know the notion that russia could have hacked in on our of the american elections and you even saw his his traditional base push back on him i think trump was feeling a little fragile on the world stage his performance at the nato summit last month did not go well it certainly did not go well when he went to canada for the g. seven summit and so i think what he's looking for is easy political points and you know meeting with kim jong un you know back in may certainly was a point to do that and i think trying to antagonize turkey which is
11:33 pm
a majority muslim country does play into his base. move it in that amount from the american point of view there was a request from president to release a turkish national who was detained in the u.s. and he was released and according to some reports also there was another turkish national who was detained in israel who was also released so what happened there why is there is this blockage on pastor brunson. well. first of all i don't think the pastor bronson issue is. one of the main reasons for this tense relations between the two countries to me it's more it's much more a result of other issues other vital issues especially for the turkish side you know when you look at the last several years we have been witnessing that the
11:34 pm
united states administration has been supporting two main terrorist organizations namely p k k and its affiliated organizations in northern syria and the fed which is widely believed that was behind the failed quit time two years ago and both actors are heavily supported by the united states so the timing of the branston issue is to me. is about american domestic issues it's not directly about turkish american relations so it's not a big issue for the two countries when it comes to releasing some and not releasing some others we see that you know thousands of pages of credible kling's have been sent to the united states to extradite the leader of the defector organization the
11:35 pm
federal argue len which is hosted in pennsylvania but the united states remains reluctant all these all these demands from the turkish side so when. we see that the tramp and some of his men they have been they began to use attracting insulting and on fortunately you.
