Turkey will have to do without the US drones needed to fight the Kurds if it doesn’t change its stance on Iran. Washington may decide not to sell Turkey any drones unless the government changes its policy towards Israel and Iran, which led Prime Minister Recep Tayyp Erdogan to sponsor the Freedom Flotilla and to vote against sanctions on Iran. The Financial Times reports that Barack Obama warned the Turkish prime minister during the G20 in Toronto, telling him that Congress may be perplexed and worried when it came to vote on the arms sale.
