Turkey plans to create an alternative to the Mir system


Go to Media BankMir CardANKARA, Oct 5 Turkish Minister of Treasury and Finance Nureddin Nebati said that work is underway on an alternative to the Russian payment system Mir. Bloomberg, citing an unnamed high-ranking Turkish official, previously reported that Turkish state-owned banks Halkbank, Ziraat Bank and VakıfBank decided to stop using the Russian payment system Mir. Last week, a representative of Ziraat Bank told RIA Novosti that the bank no longer carries out transactions with Mir cards. Last week, Turkish banks Isbank and Denizbank announced the termination of service for Mir cards due to US and UK sanctions against the Russian Federation. “Work is underway on an alternative to the Mir system, we will announce when it is completed,” Nebati quotes Turkish economic publication Finans Gündem.
