            By Michael Hernandez</p>  <p>WASHINGTON (AA) - Economic ties should serve as the &quot;main stabilizer&quot; between the U.S. and Turkey, Turkey's finance minister said Monday.</p>  <p>Addressing a gathering of business leaders in the U.S. capital, Berat Albayrak said financial ties between the countries must &quot;be just as robust as our traditional security partnership&quot;.</p>  <p>&quot;They should play a more active role in determining the future of the relationship between the two countries. I realize this is easier said than done. But I want to assure all of you that this is our vision,&quot; Albayrak said, acknowledging that the &quot;historical depth and institutional strength of the security alliance&quot; has been the &quot;linchpin&quot; in bilateral relations.
