Turkey, US Decide to Meet to Solve Diplomatic Row

Speaking during a news conference in Belgrade, Serbia on Tuesday, Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Bass of wrecking ties between the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies by suspending the issuing of visas to Turkish citizens at USA diplomatic missions following the arrest of a Turkish employee at the consulate in Istanbul.

Turkey's presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said on Thursday that Turkey has received the request of the United States to solve the ongoing visa spat between the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies.

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said the dispute has not affected the U.S. military's relationship with Turkey's armed forces. Hours later, Ankara issued a similar suspension on visas for United States citizens in a tit-for-tat move.

"We'll continue to try to address the matter in way that enables us to lift our temporary suspension of visa services", Bass told reporters.

The spat erupted after Turkey arrested a Turkish national working with the US consulate general in Istanbul last week over alleged link to the network led by the USA -based Turkish cleric Fetullah Gulen, who is accused by Ankara of masterminding a coup attempt previous year.

During the conversation, Tillerson said Turkey needed to present evidence for the accusations against the consulate employee, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said.

"I personally find it odd that high-level US officials did not conduct any means of communication with our foreign minister".

"The information that a second person is there shows something is going on at the consulate in Istanbul", Erdogan said, adding that the US should evaluate how such "agents" infiltrated the mission or who placed them there.

"It's a shame if the U.S.is governed by an ambassador in Ankara", he added. Bass's move was made in consultation with Trump administration officials in Washington, she said.
