    The US Ambassador to Turkey Eric Edelman resigned yesterday from his post in Ankara and also from the U.S. foreign service. The resignation comes at a time when anti-American sentiment is on the rise in Turkey.Edelman said that it was a personal decision to resign and that it had nothing to do with the present "coolness" in relations between Turkey and the U.S.Edelman had been criticized recently due to comments that he made, referring to Turkish President Ahmet Necdet Sezer's planned April-trip to Syria, which were seen as an interfering hand in Turkish affairs.It is not clear if Edelman will continue a career in the public service or private sector.
