The Turkish president stressed that the Chinese, Mexican and Russian markets would become a priority for Turkish exports, adding that his country was facing "an economic war," which it was going to win.

Erdogan's comment comes after US President Donald Trump on July 26 threatened sanctions against Turkey over a detention of US pastor Andrew Brunson, who is suspected by the Turkish authorities of links to a terrorist organization.

Erdogan said Turkey would not change its position on the detention of US pastor amid US remarks on possible sanctions.
