Families of American diplomats were recommended to leave Turkey


U.S. State Department recommended the families of American diplomats in Ankara and Istanbul to leave Turkey, as well as to refrain from visiting the south-eastern regions of the country.

“The State Department continues to monitor the impact of these events (a failed coup attempt in Turkey) on security in the country, and advises U.S. citizens to reconsider their plans to visit Turkey,” emphasized in a statement that was posted on Tuesday on the website of the Department of State.

“The State Department will continue to inform American people about the increased threat from terrorist organizations in Turkey,” said in the statement.

The State Department made these decisions following an attempt of military coup in Turkey, and the subsequent declaration of the state of emergency for a period of 90 days.
