U.S. delegation to travel to Turkey to solve visa crisis
Turkish government spokesman Bekir Bozdag told Haberturk television on Thursday that the two sides have agreed to work together on the crisis and that representatives will meet.
Broadcaster NTV and other local media said Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Jonathan Cohen will lead the U.S. delegation.
The move follows a phone call Wednesday between US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, the first high-level contact since the crisis erupted on Sunday.
"Secretary Tillerson conveyed to the Foreign Minister his profound concern over the detentions of Turkish national employees of our diplomatic mission to Turkey and of several American citizens," according to a U.S. statement. ■
