Turkey's Central Bank stronger thanks to support from friendly countries- Erdoğan
Turkey's central bank reserves are getting stronger as friendly countries are providing support, President Tayyip Erdoğan said, broadcaster Haberturk reported on Friday.
"Our central bank reserves started to increase. This enables us to act comfortably in terms of foreign exchange reserves. In this regard, many friendly countries are currently extending their necessary support," Erdoğan was quoted as saying.
"Our borrowing from them makes our central bank stronger," Erdoğan also said, according to Haberturk.
In comments to reporters on his flight back from a trip to Balkan countries, Erdoğan also said companies from Europe and elsewhere will make some $20 billion investment in Turkey.
