USA und Türkei frieren gegenseitige Visavergabe ein

Die US-Botschaft in der Türkei hat ihre Vergabe von Visa vorläufig gestoppt. Damit wird es türkischen Touristen und Geschäftsreisenden erheblich erschwert, in die Vereinigten Staaten zu reisen. Zur Begründung hieß es in einer am Sonntag veröffentlichten Erklärung, man überprüfe, inwieweit die Regierung in Ankara sich der Sicherheit der US-Botschaft und ihres Personals verpflichtet fühle.
