US lifts sanctions on Turkish ministers

The U.S. on Friday lifted sanctions on Turkey's justice and interior ministers.

The Treasury Department said the blacklistings of Abdulhamit Gul and Suleyman Soylu have been lifted.

The U.S. imposed sanctions on the ministers amid a row about pastor Andrew Brunson, an American cleric who was detained in Turkey on terrorism charges. He has since been freed.
