Turkey warns citizens against travelling to US

Recep Tayyip Erdogan is seen on a billboard next to a dummy bearing an image of preacher Fethullah Gulen at the Kizilay Square in Ankara during a protest against the failed military coup

Foreign ministry says revise travel plans or act with caution because of risks of "terrorism" and arbitrary detention.

Turkey's Foreign Ministry has warned that its citizens traveling to the U.S. face the risk of arbitrary arrest.

The warning published on the official website said: "It has been observed that there is a recent increase in terrorist and violent attacks in the USA", referring to several deadly incidents over the past few months. The Turkish statement echoed that language and referenced various past attacks in the USA including in Charlottesville, Ohio University and a mosque in Minnesota.

It added that the recent New York City subway pipe bomb terrorist attack was "an example of far-right/racist incidents".

Turkey has warned its citizens about traveling to the United States, in retaliation for a new USA travel advisory about Turkey.

Ties between the allies have deteriorated over what many in Turkey perceive as a USA reluctance to extradite US -based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen, whom Turkey blames for a 2016 failed coup attempt.

Ankara reacted furiously to last week's conviction in NY of Turkish banker Mehmet Hakan Atilla on charges of violating sanctions against Iran.

The U.S. previous year temporarily suspended visa services to Turkish citizens following the arrest of a local Turkish employee of the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul.
