The International Monetary Fund got caught in the political cross-fire in Turkey after what government officials called its “secret” meeting with opposition party representatives and dissident economists on Saturday in Ankara.
On a visit as part of the fund’s Article IV consultation, an annual economic assessment of each of its member countries, top IMF officials met with representatives of CHP and IYI opposition parties, according to reports over the weekend.
