Turkey will Boycott Meetings with the US Ambassador

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Ukraine and Turkey signed on Monday a number of cooperation agreements, including an action plan for development of bilateral relations for 2017-2019, the press service of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said.

"Recent events have forced the Turkish government to reassess the commitment of the government of the USA to the security of the Turkish mission facilities and personnel", a statement posted on the Twitter account of the Turkish embassy in Washington DC said, closely mimicking the earlier U.S. notification. It said the measures would apply to e-Visas, visas issued at borders and visas in passports.

The dispute blew up last week when Turkey arrested a Turkish employee of the American consulate on suspicion of links to the group blamed for last year's failed coup.

U.S. doomed to fail if it scraps nuclear deal - Rouhani warns
Iran's rial has dropped against the US dollar in recent days in a sign of concern about Trump's policy. The aide went on to accuse Washington of supporting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISISISIL) terrorists.

Metin Topuz is accused of espionage and "attempting to overthrow the Turkish government and constitution". The U.S. Embassy said it was "deeply disturbed" by the arrest.

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.

On Sunday, the U.S. Embassy in Ankara announced it had suspended non-immigrant visa services at all diplomatic facilities in Turkey.

Relations are deeply strained following the arrest of local US consulate employee Metin Topuz on terrorism and espionage charges in relation to a failed coup past year against President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

"Trying a Turkish citizen for a crime committed in Turkey is our right".

"It has huge importance and potential in the context of the continuation of the political dialogue at the highest level between our two countries as well as strengthening political, economic, cultural and overall dialogue and ties", Danilo Vucetic said of the visit, set to start yesterday.
