Within the framework of this system, Turkey has been listed in one group with Sudan, Pakistan and Guatemala, as countries with an "increased security risk" and USA citizens were advised to reconsider traveling to such states.

Ties between Ankara and Washington, both North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies and members of the coalition against Islamic State, have been strained by the US arrest and conviction of a Turkish banker in an Iran sanctions-busting case, a trial Turkey has dismissed as politically motivated.

As Turkish Daily Sabah writes in the article Turkey issues travel warning for United States, cites increase in terror attacks, "an apparent increase in terror attacks and violent incidents in the USA has been seen recently".

The trial against the banker included testimony of corruption by senior Turkish officials.

In response to a travel warning by the U.S. government to Turkey, Ankara has warned its citizens against traveling to the United States.

The U.S.' refusal to extradite Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ) leader Fethullah Gülen, who was a mastermind behind the July 15, 2016 failed coup attempt, is one of the longest-standing disputes between Ankara and Washington.

She finally told WWE because she was starting to make mistakes in the ring and she didn't want to become a danger to others. She was featured on reality series Total Divas , so that's a possible vehicle for her, as are WWE Studios feature films.

Gulen, who has lived in self-imposed exile in the United States since 1999, has denied the charges and condemned the coup.

Last year, Turkish authorities began freeing some suspects across the country, and the Ankara chief prosecutor had said he would ask for the release of 1,000 suspects.

Ankara was angered by the U.S. issuing a travel warning to American nationals.

"The "Turkey is not a safe country" statement does not benefit ties between the two countries", he said.

"An ally publishing a travel warning about us is not a serious thing, but we will discuss it with Tillerson in Vancouver", Cavusoglu said during a televised speech at the Turkish consulate in Los Angeles.
