WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Turkish delegation will meet with officials from the U.S. State Department on Wednesday, part of a visit to Washington this week to address growing friction between the NATO allies who remain at odds over Ankara's holding of an American evangelical pastor.

"We can confirm that a Turkish delegation will meet with State Department officials today," U.S. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said on Wednesday. "The meeting will be led by our deputy secretary John Sullivan."
