Turkey tells citizens to reconsider travelling to US

The Foreign Ministry on Friday issued a travel warning for Turkish citizens planning to travel to the USA, citing an increase in violence and terror attacks.

"Turkish citizens traveling to the United States may be subjected to arbitrary detentions based on testimonies of unrespected sources", the ministry said in a statement dated Thursday.

Ankara has said that the case against the banker was based on false evidence and supported by the network of the cleric Fethullah Gulen, whom it blames for orchestrating a failed coup in 2016.

Turkey also strongly opposes US military support for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which is dominated by the terrorist PKK-affiliated Democratic Union Party (PYD) and its armed-wing the People's Protection Units (YPG). The trial of the Turkish banker has also heightened tensions.
