Turkey’s central bank Governor Sahap Kavcioglu told investors in a conference call on Wednesday that fears of a premature interest rate cut are unjust.

“Expectations for an early easing of policy, which aren’t based on a just reasoning, need to disappear,” Kavcioglu told investors according to a copy of the presentation on the bank’s website. The lira trimmed losses after the news and was trading 0.7% lower at 8.5960 per dollar at 2:49 p.m. in Istanbul.
