Ankara calls for resolution to Turkey-US tensions

His remarks came three days after the US suspended non-immigrant visa services in Turkey.

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". Bass is due to leave Turkey later this week for a new assignment in Afghanistan. The U.S. Embassy said it was "deeply disturbed" by the arrest.

"We have felt at home during this visit to Serbia", Erdogan said. The suspended services will affect business, tourism, medical treatment, student, exchange visitor, crew member, media and journalist, treaty trader, diplomatic and official visas.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is continuing a visit to Serbia with a visit to Sandzak, a mainly Muslim-populated region.

"It has huge importance and potential in the context of the continuation of the political dialogue at the highest level between our two countries as well as strengthening political, economic, cultural and overall dialogue and ties", Danilo Vucetic said of the visit, set to start yesterday.

The president of Turkey said his country considers the issue of Crimea to be very important and sensitive.

US pastor Andrew Brunson, who has lived in Turkey for over 20 years, has also been behind bars for a year for alleged links to Gulen.

The employee was remanded in custody by an Istanbul court late last Wednesday on accusations of links to the group of US-based preacher Fethullah Gulen, blamed by Ankara for last year's failed coup against President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
