ISTANBUL, Oct 28 (Reuters) - The Turkish lira weakened to a new record low against the dollar on Wednesday as investor unease grew over strains in Turkey's ties with its Western allies.
The lira TRYTOM=D3 hit an all-time low of 8.2025 against the U.S. currency in overnight trade and stood at 8.1970 at 0404 GMT. It closed at 8.1875 on Tuesday and has weakened 27% this year.
Strains in ties with the United States, a row with France, a dispute between Turkey and Greece over maritime rights and the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh have all unsettled investors.
The central bank left its key rate at 10.25% last Thursday and raised its late liquidity window to 14.75%, saying significant tightening in financial conditions had already been achieved after steps to contain inflation risks.
