Turkey is in the middle of a financial crisis with the collapse of its currency in recent days amid worsening relations with its NATO ally, the United States.
What is happening to the Turkish lira?
The Turkish lira has lost more than 45 percent of its value this year.
The currency hit a fresh record low of 7.24 against the US dollar in Asia Pacific trading on Monday morning.
The lira recovered slightly on Tuesday, helped by the central bank's new liquidity measures and news of a planned conference call in which the finance minister would seek to reassure investors.
According to economic experts, in the short term, the lira's slide will increase inflation, which will hurt Turkey's poor.
Prices of goods are rising.
