On Monday, Turkey urged the United States to review its suspension of visa services after the arrest of a U.S. consulate employee escalated tensions between the two NATO allies. Last week’s arrest of a Turkish employee of the U.S. consulate in Istanbul marked a new low, as the employee was accused of having links to U.S.-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen. The cleric is a man that has been blamed by Ankara for a failed military coup in July 2016. On Sunday night, the US halted all non-immigrant visa services in Turkey as a response to accusation. On Monday, Turkey urged the United States to lift the visa suspension, saying it was causing “unnecessary tensions”.
