ANKARA - The United States has not yet received official communication from Ankara as to why local staff of the US mission in Turkey were arrested, US ambassador John Bass said on Wednesday, commenting on a diplomatic crisis between the NATO allies.

Bass, whom Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has blamed for the dispute, told reporters the United States did not intend to disrupt its long-standing relationship with Turkey and the two countries would continue to engage on the issue.
