The European Union may include Turkey on a blacklist of tax havens as soon as next month, in a move that could further strain ties between Ankara and the world's largest trading bloc.While EU countries are split over whether financial sanctions should be used against such uncooperative jurisdictions, inclusion on the blacklist may result in reputational damage to Turkey and raise pressure on EU firms to hold back investment.Turkey can still dodge inclusion on the list, but time to provide sufficient additional commitments before next month's meeting of the EU's finance ministers is running out.In an interview with Reuters, Turkish Finance Minister Naci Agbal said there'd be no reason for the EU to place Turkey on such a list and that Turkey was abiding by all international tax rules.
