Turkish president slams US charges for guards

Eyup Yildirim kicking Kurdish protester outside Turkish embassy

"The department will determine if additional steps will need to be taken". According to the New York Times, two Canadians were also arrested.

He called on those who have not been arrested to travel to the US and present themselves.

Likewise, the US Ambassador to Turkey was summoned before Turkish officials who objected to the way the situation was handled.

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was sitting in a vehicle nearby when the incident occurred.

"The State Department should double down on efforts to help bring these individuals to justice", he said in a statement, including rejecting a proposed $1.2 million sale of semi-automatic handguns and ammunition to Turkish security forces.

The violence, which left nine people hurt, came after President Donald Trump welcomed Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan to the White House.

Toronto's Ahmet Dereci, a devoted supporter of Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, was captured on video joining Erdogan's bodyguards in a May attack that sent nine people to the hospital and became an global incident.

Nine people were injured in the skirmish.

"In the United States, and particularly in the District of Columbia, we hold our ability to peacefully protest as a sacred right", he said. "But when we go there, they want their police to replace our security personnel", he added, criticizing the double standards of the U.S. One was charged with aggravated assault and the other was charged with assaulting an officer. However, they could end up being threatened with arrest if they return to the U.S. If any are still in the country, they could be expelled if Turkey refuses to waive diplomatic immunity.

Gibson is keen to return to the top tier, but it's highly likely Albion will be forced to wait to see if any top-six clubs snap him up first.

"It has been conveyed to the ambassador that this decision taken by US authorities is wrong, biased and lacks legal basis", the statement said. While they gave no further details of Erdogan's comments, the pro-government Daily Sabah newspaper quoted him as saying: "We will do everything, politically, diplomatically, to resolve it".

The Turkish Foreign Ministry then summoned the U.S. ambassador to Turkey to complain about the treatment of the detained security guards.

Men in dark suits and others were recorded repeatedly kicking one woman as she lay curled up on a sidewalk.

Of the twelve men, seven will be charged with felonies and five with misdemeanors, a law enforcement official was quoted as telling the Chicago Tribune.

Washington police, more accustomed to protecting visiting dignitaries from protesters than protecting protesters from official delegations, appeared to be caught off guard by the attack and struggled to contain the Turks.

Narin and Yildirim were both participants in the protests, according to a United States official familiar with the case. He also said two arrests were made on Wednesday. While the United States ranks 43rd in the World Press Freedom rankings, Turkey is ranked 155th.

The House committee on foreign affairs echoed the senators' call in a letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

"The conduct of Turkish security personnel earlier this week is deeply disturbing", the official said.
