In a statement, the Association of Somali-Turkey Graduates said it supports Turkey and Somalis will stand by the Turks.
“The whole world should know that we, Somalis, are with Turkey, a country that doesn’t let us alone during our problems,” it added.
Turkey and the U.S. are currently experiencing rocky relations following Washington’s imposition of sanctions on two government ministers for not releasing American pastor Andrew Brunson, who faces terrorism-related charges in Turkey.
On Aug. 15, in retaliation, Turkey increased tariffs on several U.S.-origin products, including alcohol and tobacco products and cars.
