Turkey halts all visa services for American citizens in US

President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan and President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko during their meeting in Kiev

The cheering crowd held banners praising Erdogan, while many struggled to shake hands with the Turkish president.

The Pentagon has said diplomatic tension between the USA and Turkey has not affected their military activities.

Thousands of people waving Turkish and Serbian flags lined the streets of Novi Pazar, in the Sandzak region, where Erdogan arrived with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic. -Turkish tensions have risen over USA military support for Kurdish YPG fighters in Syria, considered by Ankara to be an extension of the banned PKK, which has waged an insurgency for three decades in southeast Turkey.

When asked if Turkey and Serbia can reach their goals for economic ties and mutual investment, Vucetic said: "Trade and investment are much better and deeper than even a few years ago", and that trade and investment ties between Turkey and Serbia improved, especially after the two countries signed a free trade agreement in 2010.

In the 1990s, Turkey backed Bosnian Muslims in the war that pitted them against the Orthodox Christian Serbs and Catholic Croats.




The Turkish restrictions appeared to go further than a move by the United States to suspend the processing of "non-immigrant" visas, a specific category that relates to tourism, medical treatment, business, temporary work or study.

President Erdogan Tuesday sought to personally blame U.S. Ambassador John Bass for the tensions.

In his speech, Erdogan urged that the Balkans' bloody past be replaced with unity among the region's many nations.

But a later version said: "This measure will apply to sticker visas as well as e-Visas and border visas", leaving open the question of whether USA travellers who already have visas would be allowed to enter Turkey. "We will preserve our friendship".
