US envoy to Mideast postpones Turkey visit 'due to technical reasons'

U.S. President Barack Obama's Special Envoy for Middle East George Mitchell postponed his trip to Turkey which was planned earlier as part of a regional tour.

Mitchell's visit to Turkey was postponed "due to technical reasons and scheduling conflicts", the U.S. Embassy in Ankara said on Friday.

"The way the schedule was "very tight, we have tried very hard to make a trip to Turkey fit in, and it just could not for technical reasons," Embassy Spokesperson Kathryn Schalow told the A.A.

As part of his Mideast tour, Obama's special envoy Mitchell visited several countries including Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia and West Bank.
