Turkey tries different measures to free Crimean Tatars jailed by Russia - Erdogan

Turkey tries different measures to free Crimean Tatars jailed by Russia - Erdogan

"I use this opportunity to once again invite Turkish businesspeople to come and invest in Serbia now, especially when Halkbank is operating there", he said, referring to Turkey's large, state-owned bank.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu spoke by telephone with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and they "discussed the mutual suspensions of visa services", state-run Anadolu news agency reported, without giving further details.

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.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim gestures as he delivers a speech during the AK Party's group meeting at the Grand National Assembly of Turkey (TBMM) in Ankara, Turkey on October 10, 2017.

Erdogan, however, said the meeting would not be held.

In response, the United States stopped issuing non- immigrant visas from its missions in Turkey, prompting Turkish missions in the U.S. to hit back with a tit-for-tat measure of their own.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan received a rousing welcome on Wednesday as he visited a predominantly Muslim region in southwestern Serbia.

Turkey says it is halting all visa services for Americans at its diplomatic missions in the United States in a tit-for-tat move after the USA administration made a similar announcement.

"We have felt at home during this visit to Serbia", Erdogan said.

The spat between the two countries was ignited by the recent arrest of Metin Topuz, a USA consulate worker in Istanbul who was accused of suspected links to Fethullah Gulen, who is a Pennsylvania-based cleric blacklisted by Ankara for orchestrating last year's failed coup in Turkey.
