Turkey issues travel warning for citizens visiting US

Friday - January 12, 2018 10:42 pm , Category : WORLD

Ankara Jan 12 (IANS) Turkey on Friday issued a travel advisory for citizens travelling to the US urging them to consider increasing terror acts and arbitrary arrests of Turkish citizens.



"The US has seen an apparent increase in terror attacks and violent incidents recently " the warning published on the Foreign Ministry s website said.

The warning also pointed to the risk of "arbitrary arrests" of Turkish citizens saying judicial decisions could be made by pre-established unfounded claims and slander of the networks of US-based Fethullah Gulen whom Ankara accuses of masterminding the 2016 coup attempt Xinhua news agency reported.

Turkey s travel warning came after the US State Department issued a similar warning to its citizens on Thursday urging them to reconsider travel to Turkey "due to terrorism and arbitrary detentions" under an ongoing state of emergency.

Ties between the two NATO allies have been strained since the failed coup attempt in July 2016 amid the US s refusal to extradite Gulen.
