ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkish Justice Minister Abdulhamit Gul said on Tuesday he will tell his U.S. counterpart that the New York trial of a Turkish banker, charged with helping Iran evade U.S. sanctions, is not legal and should be ended.

Gul told Turkish broadcaster 24 TV in an interview that it would be impossible to accept a verdict contrary to Turkey's interests in the case, which has strained ties between the NATO allies.
