Supporters of Recep Tayyip Erdogan shout slogans at the Taksim Square in Istanbul, Turkey, 16 July 2016. Turkish Prime Minister Yildirim reportedly said that the Turkish military was involved in an attempted coup detat.

The coup plotters had tried to create an image that Turkey is a "third world country," the minister said, noting photos of tanks on the streets during the night of the putsch attempt.

However, he also noted resilience in the local economy, including the quick reopening of the stock exchange.

The lira has also recovered some of its loses. During the peak of concern over the coup, the lira had dropped from about 2.87 to the dollar to 3.09. It is now trading at just below 3 to the dollar.

Standard and Poor‘s rating agency downgraded Turkey after the coup, citing concerns not only over the economy itself but also checks and balances.

Turkey is currently in the middle of a 90-day state of emergency.
