Despite a call from Turkish business groups for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to mend ties with Washington, the leader was defiant on Tuesday, calling for a boycott of U.S. electronic equipment.
Erdogan has reacted to the financial instability by blaming foreign powers, in particularly the United States, a longtime North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally, which he says is waging an "economic war" as part of a plot to harm Turkey.
Erdogan also said that the country could depend on Venus and Vestel, two of Turkey's domestic smartphone brands. On Tuesday, one dollar was worth 7.2 lira.
"There is a cost for those who are plotting the operation" against Turkey, Erdogan said in the first of two speeches in Ankara, without specifying when the boycott would start or how it would be enforced.
He said: "Erdogan has not shown any sign of backing down and going to a more orthodox policy and if things get worse with the Turkish Lira there will be an increase in non-performing loans and you are going to have a blow through to the European banking system".
"We will implement a boycott against America's electronic goods", he said.
In his televised speech yesterday, Erdogan vowed that Turkey will "boycott USA electronic goods".
