ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey’s Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday he would address the “structural economic problems” of high interest rates and inflation and a wide current account deficit, in his first speech since being re-elected on June 24.

“We will take our country much further by solving the structural problems of our economy, starting with the current account deficit, inflation and high interest rates,” Erdogan told his AK Party’s parliamentary group.
