Recep Tayyip Erdoğan: Turkish economy is solid, strong13 August 2018 | 22:51 | FOCUS News Agency
“Turkey’s economic dynamics are solid, strong and intact, and they will continue to be intact,” Erdogan told Turkish ambassadors during an address at the presidential complex in capital Ankara.
"There is the World Trade Organization but when we look at these steps taken [against Turkey] does it have anything to do with the principles of World Trade Organization? Be a president or whatever you want to be. [But] You cannot just wake up one morning and say: 'I applied this much of tariffs on aluminum and steel'," Erdogan said.
He said there was no basis for the recent exchange rates development.
“Turkey is under siege in the economy, as in other areas.
"On the one hand you are going to be a strategic partner and on the other hand you put a bullet into your strategic partner," Erdogan said.
