Relations between the two countries worsened because of the case of American pastor Andrew Brunson, which in 2016 was detained by the Turkish authorities. In early August, the US Treasury imposed sanctions against the head of the Ministry of justice of Turkey Abdulhamit Gul and interior Minister Suleyman Soylu, accusing them of “serious violations of human rights”.
