WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. State Department, commenting on charges in the Turkish press that a Washington think tank was behind last month's failed coup in Turkey, said on Tuesday such inflammatory rhetoric is not helpful.

"We have certainly spoken to our Turkish counterparts on unhelpful rhetoric," she added.
