After the detention of Topuz, the U.S. chose to suspend the issuance of visas to Turkish citizens and in retaliation, Ankara adopted a similar decision with regard to American citizens.

"We do not find it right for the United States to claim it had received assurances from Turkey and misinform the USA and Turkish publics", the embassy said, according to a BBC translation.

"Based on adherence to these assurances, the Department of State is confident that the security posture has improved sufficiently to allow for the full resumption of visa services in Turkey". The employee of U.S. consulate was arrested over suspected links to a cleric blamed for last year's failed coup in Ankara.

On Thursday, the U.S. mission to Turkey said the Turkish government had followed through on its "high-level assurances" that no additional United States employees in Turkey were under investigation.

"We find it wrong to misinform the Turkish and the American public by claiming that the USA received assurances from Turkey", the statement said.

The embassy began processing visas on a "limited" basis in November following reassurances from Turkey.

Washington had condemned the arrest of the consulate employee, a male Turkish citizen, as baseless and damaging to bilateral relations.

The US decision to stop handing out visas was implemented from October and was followed by the tit-for-tat move by Turkey to stop giving Turkish visas to Americans.
