U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Thursday the United States was ready to put further economic sanctions on Turkey if detained American pastor Andrew Brunson was not released.The United States and Turkey have exchanged tit-for-tat tariffs in Trump's attempt to persuade Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to give up Brunson, who denies charges that he was involved in a coup attempt two years ago.Earlier in the day, Turkish Finance Minister Berat Albayrak assured international investors that Turkey would emerge stronger from its currency crisis, insisting the country's banks were healthy and signaling it could ride out a row with the United States.However, it later made marginal gains, taking it back to where it was earlier in the day as the currency shrugged off U.S. comments ruling out the removal of steel tariffs on Turkey, even if it frees an American pastor who lies at the center of the feud between both countries.
