Turkey summons U.S. consulate worker for questioning: Anadolu

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan

On Monday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan paid a visit to Ukraine, held a meeting with Poroshenko and participated in the sixth meeting of the Turkey-Ukraine High Level Strategic Council, co-chaired by the two leaders.

Turkish authorities summoned a US consulate worker to testify on Monday over his relatives' alleged links to last year's failed coup attempt, state-run Anadolu news agency said, days after the arrest of another consulate employee.

The U.S. and Turkey on Sunday mutually suspended non-immigrant visa services to each other's citizens, a move that has further soured the ties between the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies.

In his words, Ankara no longer recognizes Ambassador John Bass as a representative of Washington.

"Unfortunately the USA government has still not received official communication on our detained local staff", Bass said, noting, however, that the two countries are in contact on the particular issue.

"The problem is that the USA, being Turkey's main ally, has not fulfilled any of the requirements of Ankara so far", he said, adding it is possible to say that the United States has lost Turkey's trust.

Washington said the charges linking him to Gulen were baseless. "Today, Serbia considers Turkey as its friend".

President Tayyip Erdogan's spokesman said last week the Istanbul employee, Metin Topuz, had been in contact with a leading suspect in last year's failed military coup. The ambassador is due to leave Turkey within days to take up a post in Afghanistan. "To the best of our knowledge there are not any outstanding requests from Turkish law enforcement officials for any of our local staff to come in and talk to them", he said.

The dispute has led the tense ties between the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies to plunge to a new low after months of a row on the conflict in Syria, the failed coup attempt in Turkey, and USA court cases against Turkish officials.
