ANKARA (Reuters) - The Turkish court ruling that released a U.S. pastor on Friday was proof of the independence of the Turkish judiciary, an official for Turkey's presidency said.

"It is with great regret that we have been monitoring U.S. efforts to mount pressure on Turkey's independent court system for some time," Fahrettin Altun, the presidency's communications director, said.
