Turkey vows to boycott US electronics in response to sanctions

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said his country will boycott US electronic products, after Washington imposed punitive sanctions on Ankara.
 
The US doubled tariffs last week over Turkey's refusal to extradite a US pastor who is imprisoned there.
 
Turkey's weakened currency, the lira, plunged by a full 20 per cent in response.
 
President Erdogan said Turkey was taking measures to stabilise the economy, and should not give in to the enemy by investing in foreign currencies.
