U.S. State Department's spokesperson Victoria Nuland said that U.S. embassy and consulate general were working on the case of a U.S. woman who was reported missing in Istanbul, Turkey.

"We are aware of reports that a U.S. citizen, Sarai Sierra, is missing in Turkey. Our consulate general in Istanbul and our embassy in Ankara are working on the case, and they are obviously in contact with the family and with Turkish authorities," Nuland told reporters on Monday.

Also commenting on Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's statements that Turkish government was seriously considering seeking the membership in Shanghai Cooperation Organization, and that he suggested this idea to President Putin, and if they accepted Turkey to the organization; they would say bye to European Union, Nuland said that it would be interesting given the fact that Turkey's also a NATO member.
