Erdogan, Putin discuss economic ties amid lira slump

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan held a phone conversation with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin shortly after United States President Donald Trump announced he decided to double the Turkish tariffs on steel and aluminum, Anadolu reported on Friday.

The two presidents talked about strengthening economic ties and trade possibilities between Turkey and Russia. The leaders also discussed Astana peace talks and latest developments in Syria.

Earlier today, Turkish lira plummeted to a new record low against the dollar, dropping around 17%.
