"The operation will positively affect expectations for Turkey's economy in 2018," Agbal told the Anadolu news agency, explaining that accomplishments of the military campaign will cease risks to the country's economy.
The Turkish minister also noted that the financial market had remained stable as the operation in Afrin continued, a phenomenon that was anticipated.
"The market is calm, again this was expected from the operation. Developments in the stock exchange, foreign exchange, and financial markets indicate stability," Agbal pointed out.
Afrin is an area controlled by the US-backed Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) militias, considered by Ankara affiliates of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), designated as a terrorist organization in Turkey and several other countries.
