Turkish President Erdoğan proposes to trade without U.S. dollar

CHOLPON-ATA, Kyrgyzstan - Anadolu Agency

International trade’s dependency on the U.S. dollar should be decreased as it became an obstacle for Turkey says Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Sept. 3.

Erdoğan attended the 6th Summit of Turkic Council at Rukh Ordo Cultural Center in Kyrgyzstan, where he said, “We are proposing to trade in our own currencies rather than U.S. dollar.”

Turkish leader separately said that events proved Turkey and its friends shouldn’t delay fighting the Fethullahist Terrorist Organization (FETÖ).

Erdoğan added that “this terrorist organization has organized themselves over educational institutions worldwide” as it did in Turkey.

The summit is hosted by Kyrgyzstan’s President Sooronbay Jeenbekov at Rukh Ordo Cultural Center.

In addition to presidents of Turkey, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, Hungary as an observer state has been represented by its prime minister.

Manipulations aim at casting doubt on Turkish economy, says Erdoğan
