In the wake of Presidential bodyguards assaulting protesters in the US, Turkey has sent diplomatic note to the US on the grounds that the police stopping the bodyguards “caused a security weakness”
After a fracas between Turkish bodyguards and protesters in Washington last week, tit-for-tat diplomatic complaints were made about who had mistreated whom.

Ankara asks US to ‘conduct a full investigation’ after Erdoğan’s bodyguards were shown beating demonstrators outside the Turkish embassy in Washington

Turkey has summoned the American ambassador to complain about the behaviour of US security personnel during a US visit by Recep Tayyip Erdoğan that turned violent when Erdoğan’s diplomatic escort beat up protesters outside the Turkish diplomatic mission in Washington.

The violent scenes in the US capital were typical of Turkey, where anyone who criticizes the government is labeled a terrorist and treated with brutality

On 17 May, a slice of Erdoğan’s Turkey found its way to Washington DC. That day, a group of Kurdish Americans gathered outside the Turkish ambassador’s residence to protest against the Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. There, they were beaten, threatened and attacked by the Turkish leader’s bodyguards. A total of 11 people were injured. Instead of the attackers, two protesters were arrested.
