A first version of the Turkish statement that was posted on the embassy's Twitter account yesterday afternoon had said the measure would apply "to visas in passports".

He said the embassy had been unable to learn the reasons for the arrest of a Turkish staff member last week and or what evidence exists against the employee.

The spat between the two countries was ignited by the recent arrest of Metin Topuz, a USA consulate employee in Istanbul, over suspected links to US -based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen, who is accused by Ankara of being behind a failed coup attempt in July 2016. Turkey's official Anadolu news agency reported that he allegedly communicated with former police chiefs in a 2013 corruption probe, 121 people involved in the attempted coup and hundreds of people using an encrypted mobile messaging application.
