The main stock index closed 0.32 percent up at 55,744 points, outperforming an MSCI emerging markets index that fell 1.13 percent.


Asian shares, the euro and commodities rebounded on Tuesday, with stocks holding a touch above 2012 lows, as investors looked to European policymakers and the wider G7 to take decisive action to address the worsening euro zone crisis.

In a sign of heightened global alarm about strains in the 17-nation euro area, finance chiefs of the Group of Seven leading industrialized powers will hold emergency talks by phone later on Tuesday.


The World Economic Forum on Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia convenes in Istanbul, bringing together many regional political and economy leaders. Turkey’s prime minister and a number of other ministers will attend and address the conference.
