US embassy in Turkey ‘partially resumes’ visas after month-long pause

“The US Mission in Turkey has resumed processing visas on a limited basis,” the embassy said Monday, according to an email seen by Reuters. The Turkish government is expected to reciprocate, potentially resolving a diplomatic standoff that began a month ago, following the arrest of a local employee of a US Consulate. The move comes on the eve of Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim’s visit to Washington.
