Turkish citizens traveling to United States 'face risk of arbitrary arrest' - Ankara

Turkish Foreign Ministry

Turkey's Foreign Ministry warned citizens to avoid travel to the USA, citing the growing risk of terrorist attacks and other violence - a day after the State Department said the same about Turkey.

The recent US State Department travel advisory listed a rigorous "Level 3" warning for Turkey, saying "some areas have increased risk".

"Ankara is as safe as Washington, Istanbul is as safe as New York", Yildirim said.

The ministry also pointed out the "arbitrary arrests" of Turkish citizens, including public servants travelling to the USA for official duty.

The travel warning came a day after the United States urged its citizens to reconsider travel to Turkey, saying "terror groups continue plotting possible attacks in Turkey".

A statement on Friday cited risks of "terrorist" attacks as well as arbitrary arrests in Turkey's Western ally.

The two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies have seen their ties deteriorate since a coup attempt in 2016 that the Turkish government blames on USA -based Muslim preacher Fethullah Gülen.

Turkey is also angered at US support for Syrian Kurdish militia that it considers to be "terrorists".

In return, the Turkish foreign ministry said Turkish public sector employees in the USA had been detained on "baseless allegations".
