Turkish State Minister Mehmet Simsek said on Thursday that International Monetary Fund (IMF) had concluded Turkey's post-program evaluation.
"Turkey expects the board to announce the report in August," he said.
In an exclusive interview with the A.A correspondent, Simsek said Turkey carried out technical works regarding the option of a cautious stand-by arrangement with IMF.
"It is still not clear whether talks with the IMF would conclude with an agreement," he said.
"The government will decide on the kind of relationship to be carried out with the IMF according to the interests of Turkey and by taking into consideration internal and external developments," Simsek said.
