US Complains To Turkey Over Embassy Violence

Malita Javier | 20 May, 2017, 22:53

US officials strongly criticized the Turkish government.

The Middle Eastern strongman's visit to President Trump this week led to demonstrations against his regime, which recently cemented itself through a referendum giving Erdogan more power. That Mr.Erdogan has unfortunately been successful in stifling dissent in Turkey doesn't give him license to come to this country and attack one of its most basic, and cherished, freedoms.

Immediately after the incident, along with Senator John McCain several other senators also expressed outrage andurged the expulsion of Turkey's ambassador to the US.

Nine people were sent to the hospital after the fighting. A previous video from Voice of America showed police officers struggling to protect protesters and ordering the attackers to stop. Erdogan was visiting the city to finalize a trade agreement between the two countries when the detail attacked lawmaker Diego Vintimilla, who was reportedly protecting a female demonstrator.

White House may be looking to undermine special counsel's investigation
Former FBI director James Comey has agreed to testify before the Senate intelligence committee about meeting with Donald Trump. But he added: "I haven't lost my confidence in the president to be our president, I just haven't".

Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., called for the arrest and prosecution of members of Erdogan's security detail.

There need to be consequences.

Heather Nauert, the U.S. State Department spokeswoman, said in a statement that McGurk "has the full support and backing" of U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the White House, and that he had done "tremendous work" so far to coordinate the coalition.

Earlier this week the State Department released a statement saying it was "concerned by the violent incidents" and confirmed Turkish security guards were involved.

"The Turkish-Americans responded in self-defense", the statement from the Turkish embassy said. "I'm scared now too because I don't know how it will affect my life here in the United States", said Tankan, who lives in Arlington, Virginia.

Washington and Ankara are bitterly at odds over U.S. support for the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) in Syria, which Turkey considers a front for banned Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) separatists.

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. Mayor Muriel Bowser called the assault "an affront to D.C. values and our rights as Americans".

The State Department condemned the attack Wednesday, and police in the nation's capital said they were working to identify the assailants, some of whom were armed.
