"US cotton has specialty uses, it is not something we could give up using, the industry will shoulder the costs."
Turkey is the second-biggest buyer of American cotton, with shipments ranging from 1.5 million to 2 million bales per year.
Turkey exported $17 billion worth of garments and ready-to-wear clothing last year, and $8 billion of textiles and raw materials, according to industry data.
The move had been widely expected since February, when Turkey's economy ministry said US cotton was hurting the domestic cotton industry.
"It was determined that the material damage to local production branch has been the result of dumping in imports," the government said in its official gazette on Sunday while announcing the move. (SH)
