"It would be beneficial for this person to change", Cavusoglu said, referring to McGurk, adding that Turkey "would not meddle in the domestic issues of another country".
In its protest against Trump's decision, Turkey's foreign minister demanded Thursday that Trump dismiss the US envoy in charge of the anti-IS coalition, Brett McGurk.
