US embassy in Ankara is closing

NEWS DESK – The United States Embassy in Ankara closes its doors on Monday as a result of security threats.

The Embassy of the United States of America in the Turkish capital Ankara issued a statement saying it would be closed to the public on March 5 because of a security threat, and the embassy will announce the reopening of the embassy immediately after the resumption of services.

US-Turkish relations have been strained after the Turkish authorities detained officials of the US diplomatic mission in Turkey, as well as several differences over the situation in the region, especially Turkey’s involvement in Russia’s arch enemy.
