ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Steps will be taken in the coming days regarding the lifting of U.S. sanctions on two Turkish ministers, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Tuesday.

Cavusoglu made the comments in a televised interview with the state-owned news agency Anadolu. He also said the United States should cut off support for the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia and implement fully the agreement regarding Syria’s Manbij.
