Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has reproached his country’s central bank for its decision to raise interest rates.
Turkey tortures supporters of Fethullah Gulen in secret prisons, according to Germany's ZDF TV broadcaster. Europe should toughen up and follow Donald Trump's example in dealing with Ankara, says Erkan Arikan.
Venezuela has suffered from a severe political and economic crisis since a collapse in oil prices several years ago. It has sought to bolster its ties with Turkey as it faces down a range of US sanctions.
The Turkish president has announced a fresh offensive against Kurdish fighters in Syria is just around the corner. But the US has warned that such action would harm efforts to destroy the "Islamic State" in the region.
