Thank you for joining us in This Week in Turkey, I am Murat Türsan. Tonight, the Lira bounces back, Turkey becomes a premiere drone dealer, the Turkish vaccine receives emergency approval and we have polls on the conservative voter block in Turkey. Our main story tonight: After a high-stakes gambit by the President, the lira roughly recovers 60% of its value in a week. But not before it topped out at 18. On Sunday, President Erdoğan gave a speech finally revealing the reasoning behind his low interest rate policy. Turns out it was religion.
