ANKARA, March 16 The Turkish central bank's
interest rate decision is correct and is supportive of economic
growth, an advisor to President Tayyip Erdogan said on Twitter
on Thursday after the bank has kept its policy rate on hold.
Turkey's central bank raised its late liquidity window rate
by 75 basis points to 11.75 percent from 11 percent on Thursday
after a U.S. Federal Reserve hike, but left its main policy rate
on hold as concerns about its independence lingered ahead of a
referendum next month.
