On 23 October 2019 the US lifted these sanctions, following the Turkish government's agreement to a ceasefire in Syria. This means that the two Ministries and three individuals have been removed from the US SDN list and it is no longer prohibited under US sanctions to have transactions involving these entities or individuals.
