U.S. Ambassador to Ankara John Bass on Dec. 23 said he “categorically rejected” the allegations that his government was involved in the assassination of Russia’s top envoy to Turkey, Andrey Karlov, who was shot dead on Dec. 19 by a Turkish police officer.

“Allegations that I have seen that somehow the U.S. government was involved…I categorically reject those,” said Bass, speaking during a program broadcast on Turkish news channel NTV. Bass also said there was no evidence that supported the allegations.
