ANKARA: Turkey is “deeply concerned” about legal cases concerning Turkish citizens in the United States, its embassy in Washington said on Monday, adding the decision to partially resume issuing visas at US and Turkish missions was a positive development.

In a statement, the Turkish embassy said Turkish officials would continue to hold meetings with their US counterparts in order to solve the cases in a “satisfying” manner.

The statement also said Turkey had not offered the United States any assurances regarding the cases of US mission workers in Turkey.

It said the US mission workers detained or arrested in Turkey were not held for their work, but because they were accused of “serious crimes”.
