Turkey's foreign minister on Thursday called on the Trump administration to replace its envoy to the anti-Islamic State coalition - the latest sign of Turkish frustration with the US war strategy in Syria amid mounting tensions between the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies.

The U.S. says it summoned Turkey's ambassador to the State Department.

Audiovisual analysis of footage recorded at the Turkish embassy on Tuesday sheds light on the verbal commands given by Turkey's president prior to his bodyguards' attack on a group of Kurdish protesters. After their meeting, Trump praised Erdogan as a stalwart ally in the fight against the Islamic State group and the PKK, the Kurdish group that has been fighting Turkey and complicating US efforts to fight ISIS in northern Syria.

"This McGurk is definitely supporting the PKK and YPG. It would be useful if this person was replaced", Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told NTV television.

"This shameful incident also calls again into question President Trump's praise for President Erdogan, whose consolidation of power threatens the foundation of Turkey's democracy".

Asked what happened, one man bleeding profusely from a cut to his forehead said, "The Turks, the Turks, the Turks attacked us". They were assaulting these people on United States soil.Turkish Ambassador should be kicked out of country.

The suspect, who suffered from "psychological issues", told police he expected officers to shoot him, according to the source. Rojas had been arrested in 2008 in Queens and 2015 in Manhattan for drunk driving, officials said at the press conference.

On May 17, the United States voiced its "strongest possible" concern to Turkey over the street brawl that left at least 11 people injured and appeared to include members of Erdoğan's security detail kicking people who were on the ground. John McCain (R-AZ) said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said the agency is "concerned by the violent incidents" and "violence is never an appropriate response to free speech".

The embassy responded by claiming that Erdogan's protection detail was acting in "self-defense" against the protesters, which the Turkish government claims were terrorists associated with PKK, a left-wing Kurdish political party.

Earlier on Tuesday, Erdogan met with President Donald Trump at the White House, where the two leaders vowed to fix their countries' relationship and re-establish an economic and military partnership.

"The demonstrators began aggressively provoking Turkish-American citizens who had peacefully assembled to greet the president", the embassy said.

Spokesman Martin Schaefer said Consul General Georg Birgelein met for 80 minutes with Die Welt correspondent Deniz Yucel on Thursday for an unsupervised conversation. It also fueled the perception that the US allows Turkey's leader to bring strongman tactics with him when he visits the USA capital.

Eleven people were injured, including one police officer, in what law enforcement called a "brutal attack". "Turkey and the US will together run an active combat against the PKK".
