Turkey and the United States called each other unsafe countries

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan speaks during a meeting at the Presidential Palace in Ankara Turkey

It's the latest volley in a tit-for-tat diplomatic row between Washington and Ankara - two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies.

The ministry also said that Turkish travelers to the country may face arbitrary detentions, including public servants traveling to the USA for official duty. The conviction of Turkish banker Mehmet Hakan Atilla over the violation of US -imposed sanctions against Iran in what Ankara sees as a "politically motivated" case caused the latest spat between the two countries.

Speaking to reporters after Friday prayers, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım said the reciprocal travel warnings did not help the strained ties between Ankara and Washington.

The comments from the Turkish Foreign Ministry come after the US Department of State this week made a similar warning to its citizens, saying Americans planning to visit Turkey should reconsider plans due to "terrorism and arbitrary detentions".

The trial against the banker included testimony of corruption by senior Turkish officials.

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

Bangladeshi man pleads not guilty in NYC subway attack
She said Ullah recently had some stitches removed but had others that were still causing him a "great deal of discomfort". Berman of the Southern District of NY said in a statement, referring to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or Daesh.

Turkey outlawed ByLock in the aftermath of the attempted putsch, saying followers of the USA -based cleric Fethullah Gulen used it to communicate on the night of July 15, 2016, when rogue soldiers commandeered tanks and warplanes to attack parliament, killing more than 240 people.

Turkey blames Gulen for orchestrating a failed coup in Turkey in July 2016, a charge Gulen denies. Turkey has called for his extradition, but the United States says sufficient evidence has yet to be put to a court.

A few days after the resolution of the mutual embargo on visas granted to their citizens, the USA and Turkey again caused a crisis in their relations, this time with the travel instructions they issued. Meanwhile, Turkish officials have been busily firing and arresting tens-of-thousands of people it accuses of having ties to Gulen.

Turkish authorities today reinstated more than 1,800 civil servants in an emergency decree after finding they had no links to a group blamed for the 2016 failed coup.

"An ally publishing a travel warning about us is not a serious thing, but we will discuss it with Tillerson in Vancouver", Cavusoglu said during a televised speech at the Turkish consulate in Los Angeles.
