Turkish Labor & Social Security Minister Faruk Celik said Monday that during his talks with representatives of Turkish employers and employees, they agreed on the number of days one has to work in order to get retire.

"One has to work for 7,200 days to retire," he told reporters.

Commenting on his talks, Celik said the parties have reached an agreement on the number of days a person has to work to get retire, however they could not agree on the age of retirement.

"No new steps could be taken regarding the raising of the age of retirement to 65 (actually 58 for women and 60 for men) and concerning the evaluation of 30 percent of the updating coefficient during the calculation of retirement pensions," Celik said.
