ISTANBUL, May 18 (Reuters) – The Turkish lira traded slightly firmer below 6.9 against the dollar on Monday, holding onto gains late last week on a report that the government held talks with counterparts in Tokyo, London and elsewhere over new possible foreign funding.

The currency, which hit a record low of 7.269 earlier in May, stood at 6.8975 against the dollar at 0512 GMT. It firmed late Thursday after a Reuters report that Turkey was in talks with Japan and the United Kingdom on setting up currency swap lines, and with Qatar and China on expanding existing facilities.
