Ankara isn’t going to take a loan from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), said Numan Kurtulmus, deputy chairman of Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), Trend reports referring to Turkish media.
He said that Turkey doesn’t need IMF loans.
He also noted that representatives of the opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) aren’t entitled to negotiate with the IMF on behalf of the state.
Earlier it was reported that the CHP delegation held talks with the IMF on allocating a loan to Turkey.
