ISTANBUL (AA) - Three Turkish state-run banks posted 4.41 billion Turkish liras ($762 million) in net profit over the first six months of 2019.

The total assets of the three conventional banks Ziraat, Vakif and Halk -- excluding state-run participation banks -- reached nearly 1.25 trillion Turkish liras ($215.5 billion) by the end of June, according to data compiled by Anadolu Agency from unconsolidated balance sheets.

Among the three banks, Ziraat saw the highest net profit with 2.8 billion Turkish liras ($484 million). Its assets totaled 537.15 billion Turkish liras ($92.9 billion), as of the end of the year's first half.

The three banks' domestic and international branches totaled at 3,711 combined, employing more than 60,000 staff by the end of the same period.

Meanwhile, the Turkish banking sector -- including all types of lenders -- posted 24.8 billion Turkish liras ($4.3 billion) in net profits during the six-month period.
