  • USA says believes in visa crisis settlement between Ankara, Washington

"In response to assurances from the Turkish side, the US State Department came to the conclusion that the security situation in Turkey is quite good for the resumption of visa services, the embassy officials said".

The move comes two months after the USA suspended most visa services to Turkish citizens after one of its consulate employees was arrested.

"We do not find it right for the United States to claim it had received assurances from Turkey and misinform the U.S. and Turkish publics", the Turkish Embassy in Washington said in a statement.

The State Department will fully resume visa services for Turkish citizens.

Thursday, the State Department said Turkey adhered to "high-level assurances" that there are no local employees under investigation, and that embassy consultants would not be arrested or detained. We are also concerned about the cases against USA citizens who have been arrested under the state of emergency.

The U.S. continues to engage with Turkish officials in order to resolve these issues.


Meanwhile, the Turkish Embassy in Washington D.C. has also lifted visa restrictions for the US citizens.

The call came after the resumption of respective visa services both in Turkey and the U.S.

"Within the framework of the principle of reciprocity, the restrictions placed from our side on the visa regime for United States citizens are being lifted simultaneously", it said in a statement.

"In the USA the description in the context of assurance mentioned, Turkey is a state of law, with regard to file ongoing judicial process did not give any assurance of our government, due to the exercise of their official duties no representations officials in our country, we want to emphasize that the criminal investigation, subjecting".

Turkey responded in kind Thursday, announcing an end to restrictions on visa issuances to USA citizens.

The US in November said it has resumed limited visa services, a move matched by Turkey's missions in the US. The embassy stressed, however, that the Turkish government has given no assurances to Washington, refuting the US embassy's earlier claim.
