Turkey justice ministry says it cancelled delegation visit to the US amid visa crisis

Turkey's justice ministry says it has cancelled a planned delegation visit to the United States due to the ongoing visa crisis, denying local media reports that Washington had rejected to grant the delegation travel visas.
CNN Turk and other local media had earlier reported that US authorities declined to grant visas to members of the delegation.
"Due to the recent visa crisis between the two countries, the visit was cancelled by our ministry," the justice ministry said, adding that there were no visa applications to be rejected.
