After years of expansion, the Turkish economy has been faltering. Exports, investment and growth have all slowed. That has more than a little to do with President Erdogan’s strongman politics.
The Turkish president is presenting the first official version of the investigation into the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Saudi Arabia could face its worst crisis if the crown prince is linked to the killing.
The CIA chief's trip follows President Donald Trump saying he was unsatisfied with Saudi Arabia's recent explanation of Khashoggi's death. Western security agencies are still trying to piece together how Khashoggi died.
Saudi Arabia has called the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi a "huge and grave mistake," but said the crown prince had not been aware of the murder. Turkey has said it will give a full account of Khashoggi's death.
Under a new economic program, Turkey wants to cut its growth sharply and promised to curb public spending, as it seeks to avoid a full-blown economic crisis fueled by massive inflation and a plunging currency.
