ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkish finance minister Berat Albayrak praised a German minister on Monday who criticized additional U.S. tariffs on Turkey, and said advocating diplomacy will strengthen Turkish confidence in ties with Germany and the European Union.

Albayrak tweeted his comments in response to remarks by German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier who said U.S. President Donald Trump’s tariffs and sanctions policies were destroying jobs and growth, and that Europe would not bow to U.S. pressure regarding Iran.
