US President Barack Obama has asked for Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's help in showing reaction to violence following angry protests that targeted American diplomatic missions over a film that insulted and degraded the Prophet Muhammad, a White House spokesperson said Friday.
"President Obama has sent a personal message to the prime minister to request his help in voicing reaction to violence," Jay Carney told a daily press briefing.
Erdogan strongly condemned on Thursday the attack on Benghazi consulate, saying, "we are against such incidents. We have let our colleagues know that we were ready to take any mutual steps in this issue."
US Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other American diplomats were killed in an attack on US consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
Protestors also stormed US offices in Yemen, Egypt and Sudan in reaction to the inflammatory movie.
