Turkey issues travel warning for US

Turkey's Foreign Ministry on Friday issued a travel advisory for citizens travelling to the U.S. warning them against increasing terror acts and arbitrary arrests of Turkish citizens, AzVision.az reports citing Yeni Safak.

The warning published on the official website said: "It has been observed that there have been increasing cases of terror and violent acts in the United States."

The ministry mentioned recent attacks at Ohio University's campus, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport, Dar Al-Farooq Mosque in Minnessota and a church in Texas.

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

The ministry also pointed out the "arbitrary arrests" of Turkish citizens, including public servants travelling to the U.S. for official duty.
