Ankara and Washington are in discussions to try to resolve the spat over the arrest of a U.S. consulate staffer, Ambassador of the US to Ankara John Bass said on Oct. 11, adding that they are "still seeking an explanation" from Turkey for the detention of U.S. mission staff.

Bass said he hopes the two countries can quickly resolve crisis between the two NATO allies, triggered by the arrest of a U.S. Istanbul Consulate staff member and leading to mutual suspension of visa services.

Speaking to Diplomacy Correspondents Association members, Ambassador Bass said the decision for visa suspension was taken by the U.S. government, refuting President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's earlier remarks blaming him. The ambassador called the measure "saddening" and described the current crisis as "friction."

"When a government takes concrete measures against our local staff and when that government does not provide any visibility about the reasons for doing so, when some people in that government choose essentially try the guilt or innocence of those people in the media, in the court of public opinion instead of in court of law, that raises concerns for our government," he said.

However, Bass refrained from giving conditions necessary to lift the visa suspension, saying they would "rather keep diplomatic discussions away from public eye."
