"We will not abandon our people to the mercy of opportunists", Erdogan told members of his ruling AK Party at a retreat on the outskirts of Ankara.

Speaking at an worldwide forum on Thursday, Mr Erdogan said Turkey and the European Union had a lot to contribute to each other. Haberturk newspaper on September 29 cited Treasury and Finance Minister Berat Albayrak saying that the ministry would work with McKinsey for the new "Cost and Transformation Office" which would oversee budgetary measures.

"In order to not give him that chance. We have a lot to offer to the European Union, they tell us, too", said the Turkish leader.

McKinsey was not immediately available for comment, the Reuters news agency reported. He read them but couldn't handle it.

The president told members of his ruling AK Party he had ordered his ministers not to receive any financial advice or consulting from United States firm McKinsey, saying the government would rely on domestic capabilities instead.

He also said there had not been a signed deal between the government and McKinsey, but rather an agreement between the USA firm and some ministries.

Erdogan has many times expressed his dissatisfaction with the lack of progress in the negotiations.

"Despite being subject to one of the biggest economic attacks in history, we managed to largely pick things up within two months", Erdogan said on Saturday.

Kilicdaroglu, however, said Erdogan and his ministers had been "begging for borrowed money" on worldwide visits.

Erdogan agreed with Russian President Vladimir Putin last month to set up a demilitarized zone between rebel and government fighters in northern Syria.
