Turkish finance minister told investors in London high inflation is temporary

Finance Minister Nureddin Nebati told investors in London that Turkey's high inflation was temporary while providing them with "comprehensive information" about the country's economic model, his ministry said on Tuesday.

Nebati held two days of talks in London and pitched Ankara's unorthodox economic policy to investors, as Turkey grapples with soaring inflation after the lira currency lost 44% of its value last year.
