Turkey and US suspend most visa services

Turkey accuses Fethullah Gulen of being behind the failed coup - a charge he denies

Turkey and the US have become embroiled in a consular row, mutually suspending most visa services.
The Turkish embassy in Washington said it needed to “reassess” the US government’s commitment to the security of the mission and personnel.
A very similar statement was earlier made by the US embassy in Ankara.
This comes after a US consulate worker in Istanbul was held last week on suspicion of links to a cleric blamed for last year’s failed coup in Turkey.
Washington condemned the move as baseless and damaging to bilateral relations.
The arrested consulate employee was a male Turkish citizen, Turkey’s state-run Anadolu news agency reported.

The Turkish and the US embassies issued virtually identical statements

In its statement on Sunday, the Turkish embassy in Washington said: “Recent events have forced the Turkish government to reassess the commitment of the government of the US to the security of the Turkish mission facilities and personnel.
“In order to minimise the number of the visitors to our diplomatic and consular missions in the US while this assessment proceeds, effective immediately we have suspended all visa services regarding the US citizens at our diplomatic and consular missions in the US.
“This measure will apply to sticker visas as well as e-visas and border visas.”
The Turkish statement is virtually the same as the earlier American one, with only country names being replaced.
The American mission said that “all non-immigrant visa services at all US diplomatic facilities in Turkey” had been suspended.
Non-immigrant visas are issued to those travelling to the US for tourism, medical treatment, business, temporary work or study.
Those seeking citizenship or permanent residency apply for US immigrant visas.
Ankara has for months been pressing Washington to extradite US-based cleric Fethullah Gulen over his alleged role in the coup attempt in July 2016.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accuses Mr Gulen of instigating the unrest – a charge the cleric denies.
In the aftermath of the coup attempt, which was led by military officers, 40,000 people were arrested and 120,000 sacked or suspended.

  1. Great post! Toby is absolutely right in what are the priorities for good governance being essential to a good intranet.At BT we have tried to follow these principles so we have an intranet that everyone now sees as essential to their work.I share what we do, how we do it and the challenges we still face on my blog if anyone is interested.Mark

On m’a toujours dit que c’était sur que le jour ou un systeme tombait en panne un autre continuait a marcher mais personne a prevu un tel scenario comme a fukushima. Et ici on continue a nous vendre cette chose. Je m’en fiche que la facture d’electricite monte, ma santé et la santé de tous n’a pas de prix…

  3. This seems to me to protect the IP rights on a product that simply makes life unnecessarily more costly and difficult for a generation of already-cash-strapped students. Is it not enough that, due to an exponential rise in tuition, increased costs, and global recession, most students in the US are lucky to be able to attend school at all, much less purchase books that they might not even need? Moreover, potentially putting this demographic on the hook for IP infringement simply does not seem justifiable.

  5. Wow, okay, as a christian young women attending a very secular school, sometimes it’s so discouraging how many of my friends just don’t “get it”! I have LOVED reading your blog and have even suggested it to many of my non christian friends as an example that being a christian doesn’t mean you are immediately boring! So thank you, for keeping it light and keeping it real.

  8. I remember 1986. That was the year Bradley sought a rematch against Deukmejian and lost. That was between Reagan's re-election (with help from California's electoral college delegation) in 1984 and G.H.W. Bush's election (with help from California's electoral college delegation) in 1988. The electoral map hasn't changed much since then — not.Risto

  9. masala and chilli is an Indian signature. ^.^ Thats the way the breadfruit is prepared in Goa. I am surely going to try more flavor ideas one of these days. The fruit is so versatile! You can make out the difference between jackfruit and breadfruit, if you take a look at the tree. a Jackfruit tree has round leaves and a breadfruit tree has those poky style ones, as you can see in the pictures above.

  10. Suzuki-san is indeed a brilliant man. I first encountered his work in a documentary I saw while in Japan (although I didn’t understand a single word of the dialogue). It might have been “A Meridian Medley”, not sure, and can’t find very much about any films of him working on the net. I remember footage of him building huge aeolian harps on the beach, and then waiting for the wind.

  11. The focus is on independent narrative films. Most are in the English language, or at least with English subtitles. There will be discussions, parties and an exposition of fetish photography by Carlos Kella. At the end, awards are given to the best films and the event closes with a big BDSM party.” (text originally posted here)

  12. Frage an den Rudervorstand/Beirat:Wird in diesem Herbst/Winter/Frühjahr wieder ein Fitnesstraining (Koordination, Beweglichkeit, Kraft, etc.) angeboten, wie es im letzten Jahr in so hervorragender Weise von Svenja Prang, Freitags ab 20:00 Uhr in der TH der Schule “Alter Garten”, geleitet wurde?Hoffentlich ja!!!Mit rudersportlichen GrüßenPeter Jost

  13. Large, centralized power plants, whether coal, gas or nuclear, are as obsolete as dinosours. We need to evolve towards a much more efficient, safe and economical sytem of distributed, networked power generation. The technology is available and being implemented in some locations. Don’t put a millstone around Fresno’s neck with a huge investment in yesterday’s technology.

  15. I ‘m new at blogging and have recently run my own blog and now I ‘m trying to learn as much as I can regarding this kind of thing. I truly love the site skin, could you let me know what skin is it? Is it customized layout or is it paid one? However I can’t afford to buy paid template nor have the skill to custom design myself. Sorry for this noobie question, thanks.

  16. One more thing. You titled it: "Latest from Your Subscriptions" but it is NOT the latest.. is shows videos from weeks ago in some instances. It should SHOW THE LATEST videos from your subscriptions… ie: ones just uploaded. Otherwise it will be REALLY hard for people with even a lot of subscribers to let their subscribers know that they have a new video uploaded unless it randomly shows that video.. and that is not good. Most of the activity of a video occurs in the first 48 hours.. and a lot of videos are timely.. like the one I did today on Leap Year.Thanks.

  17. Gracias por la respuesta. Ahora, hasta hace unos días leía un artículo y pensaba qué se podía hacer con Google Universal. Si tengo claro el tema por ejemplo podría identificar un usuario que se loguea en un dominio A enviando la data con Measurement protocol como un evento y luego saber que es el mismo en el dominio B. De ser así las posibilidades son asombrosas.Obviamente, hablo de que se maneja la analítica de ambos dominios. De hecho ambos son del mismo cliente.Google ya me dio acceso al Universal, vamos a jugar un poco y ver que sale.

  18. it would be very helpful to have tags back in the seach results, and also i cannot search by category anymore. i know u guys wanted to simplify the searching but its extremely restricted and limited compared to the old method. i hope somebody is working on a solution to this.thanks for all your work so far.

  20. Your last point, keep working to the next step, really resonates with me and it is so important. Entrepreneurs need to keep moving forward with resilience and determination. Never settle, keep moving forward. Thanks for this inspiring article.Sunny´s last [type] ..

  21. Old hat or not, it still looks awesome on you, in fact your whole outfit does!People don't wear enough fabulous hats in my opinion…beanies & baseball caps don't count, too bleeding pedestrian, a bit like the mUGG boots & tacky trackies.Have a lovely night out on the town :)…xXx

  22. Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to browse your website on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the knowledge you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how quick your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, great blog!

  23. Ich verfolge auch Danny Choos Blog und mir waren genau diese Fotos aufgefallen.Mich hatte überrascht, dass dieses Hobby, ‘Puppen sammeln’, das mich persönlich nicht sehr interessierte, dann doch zu solchen Fotos führte, die ich ziemlich schön finde.Den Bildaufbau des ersten Fotos hatte mich da auch schon interessiert, danke für das Verlinken der Skizze. 😀

  24. I thought he lived in Atlanta.re: charitable givingsome folks take every single deduction they are entitled to while others just give to charity and do not claim it on their taxes.the only evidence I see for liberals vs conservatives is red states vs blue states.who is to say that the liberals in the red states are not the ones who give the most?

  25. What's the best way to deal with any costs?While it's a personal decision, we're caught in a socialised cost mentality eg Health/ACC.If I choose to smoke, my premiums go up (as they should).I wonder if a partial solution, is that if drunk driving/on drugs the ACC only cover say costs over 10,000? maybe similar with other health costs.the "shared" costs is an arguement used to criminalise

  26. Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, wonderful blog!

  27. Livet leker: Det har du helt rett i. Og for meg, som er relativt ny, har det gjort underverker i forholdt til å bli kjent med mange, mange. Vi var vel omtrent 70 stykker på turen, og det utgjorde noe over halvparten av de ansatte. Klart det tar litt tid å få oversikten. Men nå er det noe helt annet. Åh, det er så fint!

  28. Paloma muchas felicidades por tu trabajo muy original… Y felicidades a las que quedaron en las finalistas….. QUE ORIGINALES TODOS.. felicidades a las que seleccionan los trabajos que me imagino ha de ser TAN dificil decidir… Les deseo Feliz Navidad y que el amor y la bondad reine en sus corazones siempre..Cuidense y nos vemos el proximo año si Dios lo permite 🙂

  29. trenet, si vous faites confiance à cet auteur, alors, rien ne va plus.Il est bien connu qu’il voulait parler de Gravelines ; mais une question de musicalité, de rime,de design peut-être …Enfin quoi trenet, vous me semblez connaître bien les poètes, vous auriez pu savoir cela et ne pas confondre

  30. I actually just wear my husbands shirts the way they are. We’ve been living with one income. So I dont get new clothes very often. THe last time I got new clothes was when I was pregnant. I got maternity clothes. I’ve just started sewing, and I’m looking to change up a few clothes I already have. But honestly there still weren’t that many. So my point being, this is an awesome idea! He’s got a few shirts that he doesn’t like and wouldn’t mind me stealing I think. THanks for posting this!

  31. Unfortunately, only 2 weeks in and already i have fallen off the bandwagon…sad, pathetic, all of it 🙂 This recipe looks delicious and healthy, totally going to make it. Thanks for the inspiration! Your blog and photos are eye candy…so even though I'm trying really hard not to it eat (resolution #1328) I can look at it. P.s. Your babies are sweet as candy too 🙂

  32. Man skal ha litt flaks med hvor man gÃ¥r hen ettersom været forandrer seg ja:) Hadde tenkt Ã¥ høre med deg og marie om vi skulle tatt ei jakthelg pÃ¥ hytta vÃ¥r nÃ¥ helga den 19.-21. men jeg har visst meldt meg pÃ¥ swingkurs den helga..hehe…skal se om jeg finner en annen helg som kan funke. Hadde hvertfall vært koselig:)

  33. Im looking everywhere for bathsalts… I live in Toledo ohio and they have NOT put the ban on them here yet. I’ve been wanting to try and find out if they’re really as ” bad” as what I’ve been hearing. People make it sound so intimidating! I’m hoping this might be comparable to the adderall high. Heavenly… If anyone could please tell me where in Toledo I can find, I’d be greatly appreciative to you! Thanks so much

  34. Kait, hello, and thanks for sharing that perspective. I fear the same is true in many fields – it’s hard to change the language when it’s as dominant as this, especially if those are the ‘rules’ that you need to play by in order to get published. Would that it were different…

  35. El premio de fin de año para el ganador debería ser VINO ya que somos los miembros del CDV. Propongo donar una botella de vino cada participante y a fin de año repartirlas de acuerdo a quién fue primero, segundo, tercero, etc, según la cantidad de botellas que obtengamos.El vino a donar debe tener algunas características que debe votar la Comisión Directiva y/o el Comité Técnico del CDV. por ejemplo debe ser un varietal, en botella, etc, etc.

  36. [..YouTube..] VIS VIRES I loved your intro! Hey, our next official weigh in is this coming Friday. So those numbers might come down a little by then. Even if it takes a few weeks to relose, the final weigh in is the most important. Just don’t give up and WE CAN DO THIS.

  37. out18Leo e Jake Muito obrigado André pelo belo trabalho, estávamos muito ansiosos para ver um pedacinho do seu trabalho e como esperado esta muito bom …. Obrigado tbm por ter feito parte deste dia tão importante para nós …. Abraços !!!! Léo e Jake.

  38. I am pretty sure that you can keep HD channels without the DVR box; you just need to ask for a cable box that does not have a DVR. I had one of these at one point and I do not think I paid for it. Also, I recommend you don’t ditch TWC for internet service if you’re dissatisfied with the speed. Calling Frontier would be like jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire. DSL will make you want to cry, their max speed is 10mbps – on a good day.

  39. I used to start another project whenever I got stuck on my current MS. Resulting in lots of first chapters, first three chapters,etc. I finally learned that those other “shiny” ideas soon become just as hard as the current MS once I reached about pg 50. That’s when I learned to stick with one.

  40. This is a great look. It's neutral but not boring in the least.My style inspiration has been Carrie Bradshaw for years. I don't really try to copy outfits she wore, but many times I've gotten dressed and then thought, "This is SO Carrie Bradshaw." Lately, I admire Lady Gaga. Woman is fearless!

  41. How much work is it, really, to fix such an obvious and repeatable bug as eating carriage returns following an HTML tag? Not much. blogger programmers are incompetent idiots.===============> yet Wright remains the most brilliant architect in U.S. history warts and all.QT: I believe there are people who would argue with you about the superlative claim but certainly he was among the best.Some of the obvious counterarguments (in case anyone is interested) would include:…Not saying I concur with any of those, but they have their proponents.

  42. HaHaha great story, slightly frightening!! We should probably never travel together because I always tend to not take advice either. I’m kind of one of those stet Nt headed want to make mistakes for myself kind of person but then I always regret it later haha Someone needs to be sensible!

  43. I appreciate a tremendous publish, would examine one’s others topics. thanks for your thinking for this, I really felt somewhat thump by this post. Many thanks again! You earn an excellent aspect. Has fantastic info here. I do think that in case more people thought about it like this, they’d have got a better time period obtain the grasp ofing the issue.

  44. On the numbers … The $1.5 million outstanding loan balance is less than the $1.9 million he paid for the home because he made a down payment, and because he paid on the loan until June … The difference between the $1.5 million and $1.1 million his home is selling for is the “short” in the short sale … Best, Phillip Reese, sacbee.com

  45. Mix2-10-2009 Acaso creen que porque ponen un plugin que les regaló la Pitonizza no puedo visitar su porquerí­a de blog, me rí­o de ustedes. Jajajaja. Pueden bloquearme, lo que sea, igual encontraré modo de vigilarlos. Y por cierto, los que creen que solo el rock vale como música son una partida de ignorantes.

  46. I am new to developing internet sites and I was curious about if getting your website title in connection with your articles really in which critical? I see your title, Khmer Mp3 » Somnangblogs does appear to be spot on with what your blog is all about yet, I would rather keep our title a lesser amount of content illustrative and primarily based more all-around site personalisation. Would you believe this may be beneficial or undesirable idea? Any kind of help will be greatly valued.
