Washington: U.S.and Turkey maintain vibrant economic ties
The United States continues to be a solid friend and ally of Turkey despite ongoing tensions between the NATO allies, the U.S. Embassy in Ankara said.
"The United States continues to be a firm friend and ally of Turkey despite current tensions. Our countries have a vibrant economic relation," the embassy said in a tweet today.
In a tweet, the Embassy also slammed Turkish media reports citing a U.S. official saying Turkey’s lira currency would weaken to 7 against the dollar as “made up and baseless”, after the currency hit a series of record lows on Monday on the back of trade threats from Washington and a deepening diplomatic row, Reuters reported.
