ANKARA - The Turkish lira weakened to beyond 17.5730 against the U.S. dollar on Tuesday, its weakest since a full-blown currency crisis in December, as a strong dollar and concerns over high domestic inflation and low interest rates weighed.

The lira is down some 25% this year after shedding 44% in 2021, among the worst performers in emerging markets. Unorthodox rate cuts late last year sparked the crisis that sent inflation soaring to near 80%.
