Apple has temporarily halted sales of its products in Turkey.

According to a report by MacRumors, customers in the country are able to go to the Apple Store site and shop around for all the different products found on the site.

However, they are currently unable to add any of the products in stock to their shopping cart or make a purchase for something that was in their shopping cart before the change.

Apple appears to have temporarily halted sales of devices in Turkey as the country’s economic crisis worsened Tuesday morning. The lira fell 15 percent after Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan vehemently defended recent interest rate cuts, Reuters reports.

Right now, Apple’s Turkey storefront is up and operational, but no devices are able to be added to a virtual cart or purchased at the moment due to volatility.

It is currently unclear when Apple may resume sales of its products in the country.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has rejected interest rate cuts in the country as it has experienced nearly twenty percent inflation. The value of the Turkish lira has fallen forty-five percent compared to the US dollar over the course of the year.
