White House Statement on Turkey Protests -- June, 2, 2013. 7.47 pm

Also, I continue to refer you to the State Department spokesperson's comments on Friday

We also believe that Turkey’s long-term stability, security, and prosperity is best guaranteed by upholding the fundamental freedoms of expression, assembly, and association.  Peaceful public demonstrations are a part of democratic expression, and we expect that security forces will exercise restraint and that all parties will continue to work to calm the situation.
