The United Nations (UN) has opened an investigation into Turkey allegedly selling electronic equipment to Iran included in a list of items banned for export to the Islamic republic, thereby violating a Security Council resolution on the matter.
The contraband shipment contained CSP 180/300 model capacitors manufactured by the Israeli company.

Moreover, NBC News reported previously that Special Counsel Robert Mueller—investing the Trump administration's ties to Russia—examined whether Erdo?an had offered Michael Flynn, former national security adviser to US President Donald Trump, 15 million dollars to extradite Erdo?an's chief political opponent cleric Fethullah Gülen—currently living in self-imposed exile in the US—to Turkey.
