Visa talks with US heading in good direction: Presidential spokesperson
ISTANBUL - Reuters
Turkey's talks with the United States over an ongoing visa crisis are headed in a "good direction," Turkey's presidential spokesperson said on Oct. 18.
İbrahim Kalın told state channel TRT Haber in an interview that he believes the visa crisis with the U.S. will be resolved soon.
Visa operations were mutually suspended by the two countries on Oct. 8, in a widening diplomatic row over Ankara's arrest of a Turkish national employed by the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul.
A delegation from the U.S. arrived in Turkey on Oct. 17 to discuss the resolution of the crisis.
