According to the Guardian, the Senator also called for more diplomatic response from the U.S., and said the government should press charges against Turkish officials involved in the brawl.

During the visit, there was an altercation between protesters and Turkish security personnel outside the Turkish ambassador's residence in Washington.

Police have said 11 people were injured, including a Washington police officer, and two people were arrested for assault.

Erdogan and his thugs insist the protesters have connections to the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which the United States has listed as a terrorist group.

"I would like to acknowledge, and thank Ambassador Kılıç, for the work he did, stopped the fight, calmed nerves and addressed the aftermath, thank you sir", Shannon said at the 36th Annual Conference on U.S. - Turkey Relations, organized by the Turkish American Council and Turkish American Business Council at the Trump Hotel. "The State Department has raised its concerns about those events at the highest levels", she added.

The incident happened on Tuesday outside the Turkish embassy in Washington, hours after Mr Erdogan met with US President Donald Trump.

Several days later, images of Mr. Ergodan watching the clashes next to his motorcade outside the embassy began circulating on opposition social media sites, fueling speculation the Turkish president had personally ordered his security detail to put down the protest.
