US, Turkey spar over Erdogan visit violence, Kurdish support

Erdogan says Turkey will act if Syrian Kurdish militia attacks- media

"Violence is never an appropriate response to free speech, and we support the rights of people everywhere to free expression and peaceful protest", the statement read. It said they chanted anti-Erdogan slogans, and that Erdogan's team moved in to disperse them because "police did not heed to Turkish demands to intervene".

A Voice of America video shows police officers struggling to protect a small group of protesters across the street from the embassy from being kicked and beaten bloody by a group of men in dark suits who repeatedly refused their orders to stay away.

"We should throw their ambassador the hell out of the United States of America", McCain said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe".

Washington's Metropolitan Police Department said it had arrested two USA residents Ayten Necmi, 49, and Jalal Kheirabadi, 42, over the incident.

And Turkey's calls for the U.S.to extradite Fethullah Gulen, an influential Turkish cleric and Erdogan rival whom the Turkish government claims was behind a failed 2016 coup, have so far fallen on deaf ears. "The Turkish-Americans responded in self-defense and one of them was seriously injured".

PRESIDENT TRUMP laid out the welcome mat this week for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and the strongman apparently felt so much at home he thought it okay for his thugs to beat up peaceful demonstrators.

"We are communicating our concern to the Turkish government in the strongest possible terms".

The attack allegedly perpetrated by bodyguards and other supporters of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan came under fierce criticism from Washington, D.C., police and local officials, who described it as a violent attack on peaceful demonstrators.

According to D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham, the situation was especially "dicey" because some of the Turkish guards were armed.

The security detail, he continued, violated American laws on United States ground, and that can not happen.

Lawsuits can also be sought, said McCain, as "we can identify these people", but the first step should be to throw the ambassador out of the United States.

A video shows the Turkish president standing near his auto as the fighting ensued, before turning his back and walking into the embassy.

"Groups affiliated with the PKK, which the US and Turkey have designated as a terrorist organization, gathered yesterday without permit in Sheridan Circle in the immediate vicinity of the Ambassador's Residence, while the President of Turkey was visiting the Residence".

"The weapons provided will only be used in Raqqa and its south, they will absolutely not be used against Turkey, this will not be allowed", Cavusoglu said.

Turkey's foreign minister says the country will continue to fight Syrian Kurdish militants, and he has relayed this position to the United States, which considers them a key ally against the Islamic State group.
