He committed to backing Turkey's fight against the Islamic State extremist group and a Kurdish insurgency known as the Kurdistan Workers' Party, which the United States, the European Union and Turkey all consider a terrorist organization.

"All of the sudden they just ran towards us", Yazidi Kurd demonstrator Lucy Usoyan told ABC, adding that she was attacked by one of the pro-Erdogan supporters. The spokesman, officer Hugh Carew, said the origin of the melee was still under investigation.

"We also appreciate Turkey's leadership in seeking an end to the horrific killing in Syria". He lives in self-imposed exile in the United States.
