And Turkey's calls for the U.S.to extradite Fethullah Gulen, an influential Turkish cleric and Erdogan rival whom the Turkish government claims was behind a failed 2016 coup, have so far fallen on deaf ears.

The altercation came the same day that Erdogan met with President Donald Trump at the White House.

President Erdogan's security staff can be seen kicking and beating Turkish anti-government protesters in Washington.

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

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said McGurk has done "tremendous work" in coordinating and leading the worldwide coalition against IS, and has the support of the White House and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

TURKEY'S rows with its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies escalated yesterday over U.S. support for Syrian Kurdish separatists and Germany's use of a key air base.

But the Turkish Embassy said the demonstrators were aggressively provoking Turkish-Americans who had gathered to greet the president, and they in turn responded in self-defence.

OPEC considering to cut back their oil output until March 2018
In late November, OPEC agreed to cut production by 1.2 million barrels a day, the first such reduction agreement since 2008. Oil prices rose more than 3 percent after the announcement with a barrel of Brent Crude jumping to $52.52.


Turkey's foreign minister also demanded that a USA envoy be removed for allegedly backing the Kurds, but the State Department said Brett McGurk has the "full support" of the Trump administration. "There is no excuse for this kind of thuggish behavior", McCain initially tweeted after the incident.

Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser said it was "an affront to DC values and our rights as Americans".

Police Chief Peter Newsham said on Wednesday the violence was "not something we tolerate in our city".

But Trump stood out in his praise for Erdogan in April, surprising the global community when he called the Turkish president to congratulate him on a controversial referendum win that expanded his power.

"The weapons provided will only be used in Raqqa and its south, they will absolutely not be used against Turkey, this will not be allowed", Cavusoglu said. The document says he struck an officer in the face while the officer was trying to separate protesters and that he "engaged in a physical confrontation" with the officer. Turkey insists that these YPG militants and their PYD political party are tied to the Kurdish insurgency in Turkey known as the PKK, which the US, the European Union and Turkey all consider a terrorist organization. Such groups will "have no safe quarter", Trump said.

"Groups affiliated with the PKK, which the USA and Turkey have designated as a terrorist organization, gathered yesterday without permit in Sheridan Circle in the immediate vicinity of the Ambassador's Residence, while the President of Turkey was visiting the Residence". But Erdogan's government views the Syrian Kurdish group known as the YPG as an extension of a Kurdish terrorist organization that operates in Turkey.
