BERLIN (Reuters) - Turkey did not seek economic aid from Germany during talks in Berlin on Friday and Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan will not ask for support when he meets Chancellor Angela Merkel next week either, German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz said.

"Turkey has not sought economic aid, neither during our talks today nor will it do so in the talks that the president and the chancellor will hold," Scholz said after meeting Turkish Finance Minister Berat Albayrak, who is Erdogan's son-in-law.
