A violent confrontation Tuesday evening outside the Turkish ambassador's residence in Northwest Washington resulted in 11 people being injured.

The assault on pro-Kurd protesters occurred shortly after Erdogan's Tuesday meeting with Trump at the White House.

After his talk with Erdogan, the bodyguard walks towards the protesters and Turkish security personnel at the residence of Turkish ambassador attack them immediately after Erdo─čan's bodyguard approaches towards them.

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

"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.

The U.S. announced last week that it would arm Kurdish fighters in Syria, a move Erdogan is against because he says they are linked to the Kurdish insurgency in Turkey known as the PKK. "The Turkish-Americans responded in self-defense and one of them was seriously injured".

The State Department did not say whether any further action would be taken, but Washington, DC police said they were studying footage of the incident and trying to identify suspects.

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

The US respects Turkish concerns about its "by, with, and through" approach to the Syrian Democratic Forces led by the YPG, and will continue consulting with ankara as the focus on combating IS continues, Nauert said. "There is no excuse for this kind of thuggish behavior", McCain said on his Twitter account.

"The actions seen outside the Turkish Embassy in Washington DC stand in contrast to the First Amendment rights and principles we work tirelessly to protect every single day". "This is the United States of America".

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

But Trump stood out in his praise for Erdogan in April, surprising the worldwide community when he called the Turkish president to congratulate him on a controversial referendum win that expanded his power. "It also alleged that the protesters were affiliated with the separatist Kurdistan Workers' Party", or PKK, which has been designated as a terrorist organization by both the United States and Turkey, but a protest leader denied that claim. Such groups will "have no safe quarter", Trump said.

Cavusoglu said Turkey received U.S. assurances that arms sent to the YPG would be used only against IS, without explaining how this would be monitored.
