Turkish lira firms following report of search for foreign funds

ANKARA, May 14 (Reuters) - Turkish lira firmed to 6.9 against the U.S. dollar after a Reuters report said on Thursday that Turkey’s government had appealed to foreign allies in an urgent search for funding.

Treasury and central bank officials held bilateral talks in recent days with counterparts from Japan and the United Kingdom on setting up currency swap lines, and with Qatar and China on expanding existing facilities, three senior Turkish officials said.
