According to "Shafaq News", this decline is historic, and the Turkish lira reached 11.190 against the euro and 13.25 against the sterling pound.
The Turkish lira fell on the back of the Turkish Central Bank's announcement to cut the interest rate to 16%.
The Turkish Central Bank decided, on Thursday, to cut the interest rate to 16% from 18%, amid a record drop in the exchange rate of the Turkish lira, after which it accelerated its decline, falling to 9.47 from 9.29 to the dollar.
On Friday, the Turkish currency continued to decline in prices.
The dollar jumped against the lira to 9.18 lira to the dollar on October 14 amid news of the dismissal of three high-ranking central bank officials by decree of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, including his deputy, Smekh Tyumen and Ugur Namik Kucuk.
