ISTANBUL - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan will fight back politically against the arrest warrants issued by US authorities for his security personnel, broadcaster CNN Turk quoted him as saying on Thursday.

Washington prosecutors have charged a dozen Turkish security and police officers with assault after an attack on protesters during Erdogan's visit to the US capital last month, officials said.

CNN Turk gave no further details of Erdogan's comments. However, the pro-government Daily Sabah newspaper quoted him as saying: "We will do everything, politically, diplomatically, to resolve it."

The daytime brawl outside the Turkish ambassador's residence in the city on May 16 left nine protesters injured and strained US-Turkish relations.
