Citizens travelling to U.S. face risk of arbitrary arrest: Turkey

Citizens travelling to U.S. face risk of arbitrary arrest: Turkey

Within the framework of this system, Turkey has been listed in one group with Sudan, Pakistan and Guatemala, as countries with an "increased security risk" and U.S. citizens were advised to reconsider traveling to such states.

A statement by the Turkish foreign ministry - using nearly identical language to the original U.S. advisory - warns of an increase in terrorism and "risk of arbitrary detention" in America. The ministry also said that Turkish travelers to the country may face arbitrary detentions, including public servants traveling to the USA for official duty. "In addition to bombings and shootings, attacks carried out by driving vehicles into a crowd, targeting of city centers and cultural events, metro stations, public buildings, places of worship and even school campuses is also possible", the warning said.

The move follows a US State Department advisory on Wednesday which urged Americans to reconsider visiting Turkey due to security concerns.

"The "Turkey is not a safe country" statement does not benefit ties between the two countries", he said.

Relations between the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies have become increasingly strained over a number of issues, including Turkey's detention of two Turkish employees of USA diplomatic missions in the country.

Following a fragile cease-fire, the group resumed fighting in July 2015.

Earlier this month, a USA jury found a Turkish banker guilty of helping Iran evade US sanctions in a case which has strained diplomatic relations between the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies and which Turkey has dismissed as politically motivated.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said Saturday that Turkey will conduct military operations in Syria's Afrin if the PKK-affiliate Peoples' Protection Units (YPG) terrorists do not withdraw, adding that Turkey was disappointed with the United States for not keeping its promises, Daily Sabah reported.
