The White House denies Obama issued Erdogan ultimatum

A representative of the press-service of the White House, Dan Burton, has denied previous information that president Barack Obama issued an ultimatum to the prime minister of Turkey, Redzhep Tayyil Erdogan, reports Trend, referring to CNN Turk.
On Monday morning the UK's Financial Times newspaper, referring to its own sources in the US administration, wrote that the USA will cease exports of weaponry to Turkey, if it does not change its policy towards Iran and Israel.
Burton claims that there was no ultimatum and that Barack Obama simply discussed various international issues with the prime minister, such as the attack on the freedom flotilla.
"There was no ultimatum," he said.
