ISTANBUL - The United States is concerned by Turkey's growing trade ties with Iran and has warned Turkish banks against dealing with blacklisted Iranian counterparts, a senior US Treasury official said on Wednesday.

David Cohen, acting US Under-Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, said he came to Turkey to "urge full and robust implementation of UN Security Council resolution 1929 against Iran."

Turkey says it is complying with UN sanctions imposed last year, aimed at persuading Iran to become more open about its nuclear program to allay suspicions in both the West and Middle East that it is building weapons.
