United States consulates in Turkey have halted all non-immigrant visa services over security concerns. Last week, Washington said it was "deeply disturbed" after the arrest of a staff member at its consulate in Istanbul.

The US mission to Turkey said in a statement Sunday that it had drastically cut visa services while it reassessed Ankara's commitment to the security of its staff.

"Recent events have forced the United States government to reassess the commitment of [the] government of Turkey to the security of [the] US mission and personnel," the statement said.

"In order to minimize the number of visitors to our embassy and consulates while this assessment proceeds, effective immediately we have suspended all non-immigrant visa services at all US diplomatic facilities in Turkey."

And both are NATO... think Turkey will pull out of NATO since he's becoming besties with Russia?
