Turkey reciprocated the move and announced a resumption of limited visa processing at its diplomatic missions in the USA via a statement on Twitter.

A US embassy statement said it had received "high-level assurances" from Turkey that no additional local employees were under investigation.

In the email sent visa Information center United States of America at the number of Turkish citizens who have applied previously for a US visa, saying the resumption of acceptance of applications in a limited manner. Applicants who wish to travel to the United States may now reschedule appointments.

Both the US and Turkey had suspended all non-immigrant visa services for travel between the two countries last month following the arrest of a US Consulate employee in Istanbul, who the Turkish government said was linked to an exiled cleric living in Pennsylvania the Turkish government believes was behind a failed coup attempt previous year.

Turkey has pressed Washington for the extradition of the Pennsylvania-based Gulen, who denies any link to the coup bid. Erdogan described the USA decision as "upsetting". The U.S. Embassy denies the accusations against them.

In the aftermath of the coup attempt, which was led by military officers, 40,000 people were arrested and 120,000 sacked or suspended.

The lack of movement on the issue has further strained ties already frayed over Washington's support for a Syrian Kurdish militia that Ankara considers a terror group.

In March, a Turkish employee at the USA consulate in the southern city of Adana was arrested on charges of supporting the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which both Ankara and Washington consider a terror group.
