UNITED NATIONS, December 18. /TASS/. The UN Security Council may impose sanctions on Turkey if it turns out that the country does not take "measures effective enough" to fight against terrorism financing, Russia’s Ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin told journalists on Friday.
At the UN Security Council session on Thursday Churkin outlined the scheme used by the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization to supply oil through the Turkish territory and named companies involved in this activity.
"A relevant sanctions mechanism exists, and it can be used against Turkish individuals and legal entities," Churkin said. "Even the country itself may face sanctions if it turns out that it does not take effective enough measures to fight against financing terrorism," he added.
On December 2 Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said that the Turkish leadership is involved in the illegal extraction and transportation of Syrian and Iraqi oil. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in response to accusations that he will resign if there is proof that Turkey buys oil from IS.
