So effective immediately, we have sanctioned three of the ministers: the minister of defence, the minister of interior, and the minister of energy. We have also sanctioned the department of defence and the department... the ministry of energy. These sanctions are both primary sanctions as well as secondary sanctions for any financial institutions that are doing significant transactions.
With these sanctions, we will be simultaneously issuing two general licences. The first general licence will be very clear that the United Nations and other NGOs that are conducting humanitarian responses will be able to continue. I'd also like to be clear that we will be issuing a licence for the US government and parties of the US government to continue operations with Turkey as well as we will be issuing a licence so that Turkey can continue to buy fuel. We are not looking to shut down the energy for the people of Turkey. The president has been very clear. These sanctions are very, very strong. He is prepared to remove these sanctions if there is the necessary actions on Turkey's point.
