ISTANBUL (Aug 14): The Turkish lira weakened slightly to 6.92 against the dollar on Tuesday morning, having pulled back from a record low of 7.24 a day earlier after the central bank pledged to provide liquidity.

The lira TRYTOM=D3, which closed at 6.9 on Monday, has lost 45 percent of its value against the dollar this year, hit by worries over President Tayyip Erdogan's calls for lower interest rates and worsening ties with the United States.
