Turkish ties hit rough patch after rough Erdogan visit

Sen. John McCain said Thursday that Turkey's ambassador to the United States should be removed after a clash between Turkish security and protesters in Washington D.C. this week.

The minister said Trump's new US administration seems more understanding about Turkey's security concerns.

News reported on Wednesday that the men who attacked the protesters were bodyguards of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. -Turkish tensions that are compounded by a growing spat over US policy in Syria.

"Brett McGurk, the USA's special envoy in the fight against Daesh (Islamic State), is definitely and clearly giving support to the PKK and YPG". "It will be beneficial if this person is replaced".

The incident, which took place the same day Erdogan met with President Trump at the White House, is said to have stained the diplomatic visit of the Turkish President who received assurance from Washington that the USA position on Kurdish issue will not cloud relations between the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies.

"Customary global law affords heads of state and members of their entourage with inviolability from arrest and detention", a State Department official told ABC News.

Republican Senators Marco Rubio (Florida) and Ted Cruz (Texas) called on the Turkish government to immediately apologize for the violence.

The film went past the worldwide record of PK at Rs. 743 crore in just six days. Now all eyes are on if it will cross Rs 2,000 crore. This is the highest collection for any Indian film.

After meetings and a joint press statement, Erdogan rode to the Turkish ambassador's residence, where anti-Erdogan demonstrators were protesting, until a violent attack by Turkish security forces broke everything up.

McCain and Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, the senior Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, also sent a letter to Erdogan stating that the "actions of your staff violate the constitutional protections of freedom of the press and freedom of assembly enjoyed by all Americans". In April 2016 the president's bodyguards beat protesters outside the Brookings Institution in Washington D.C. while Erdogan gave a speech inside, prompting the think tank to strongly condemn the behavior.

The protesters "began aggressively provoking Turkish-American citizens who had peacefully assembled to greet the President", the embassy said in a statement released late Wednesday. Protest organizers said those arrested were part of their group.

Cavusoglu said Thursday that the Trump administration "did not show any reaction" to the Turkish warning.

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