Turkish PM to visit US on Tuesday amid visa dispute


Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim will visit the U.S. next Tuesday amid the ongoing visa dispute between the two countries, according to Prime Ministry sources, APA reports quoting Anadolu agency.

 

Yildirim's visit is scheduled to last four days until Nov. 11, the sources said Thursday.

 

The visa dispute was sparked on Oct. 8, when the U.S. Embassy in Ankara announced the suspension of non-immigrant visa services to Turkish nationals, following the arrest of a local employee working at the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul. This prompted a tit-for-tat response from Ankara.
