ANKARA (AA) - A reporter of Turkey's state-run broadcaster was attacked by a supporter of the terrorist YPG/PKK group Wednesday during a live stream in Washington where he was covering a meeting between Turkish and U.S. presidents.

The terror group supporter attacked Tuna Sanli of the Turkish Radio and Television Corporation as he approached the reporter from behind and tried to interrupt the live stream.

"I extend my sincere best wishes to TRT News reporter who was attacked by the enemies of Turkey during live stream in Washington," TRT Director General Ibrahim Eren said on Twitter.

"We will continue to transmit the truth without fear, no matter which part of world we are," he added.

Supporters of the YPG/PKK, the PKK’s terror group Syrian offshoot, have conducted violent acts outside the White House as two presidents meet in the Oval Office.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the European Union -- has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children and infants.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan arrived midday for meetings with U.S. President Donald Trump the White House scheduled for more than three hours, and which is to be followed by a joint news conference.
