Turkey calls on US to lift barriers

ISTANBUL: Turkey asked the United States to lift trade barriers between the two countries during talks on Saturday aimed at sharply increasing bilateral commerce, Turkey’s trade minister said.

Washington and Ankara have set an ambitious goal of quadrupling their trade to US$100bil a year.

Trade Minister Ruhsar Pekcan said she expressed Turkey’s “clear expectation” to US Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross over the removal of “certain barriers and policies as implemented by the US administration that constitute (an) obstacle to enhancing our bilateral trade.” — Reuters
