ANKARA (Reuters) – Turkish and U.S. officials have decided to meet to work on resolving a diplomatic dispute between the two NATO allies and talks between their foreign ministers were constructive, Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said on Thursday.

In an interview with broadcaster Haberturk, Bozdag said a U.S. consulate employee arrested in Turkey had not demanded lawyer access and the U.S. mission could apply to send a lawyer to see him.
