Visa conflict between the United States and Turkey comes to an end

A months-long visa row between Turkey and the United States ended yesterday as both countries announced that they would resume full capacity visa proceedings for each other’s citizens. The U.S. Embassy in Ankara and the Turkish Embassy in Washington issued separate statements on their Twitter accounts announcing the end of visa restrictions that were in place since early November.

The U.S. visa imposition began after Turkey arrested Metin Topuz, a local employee working as a liaison of the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) at the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul, over terrorism charges and alleged links to the Fethullahist Terror Organization (FETÖ).
