But, one of the main topics for discussion was terrorism and terror groups.

President Trump shared that the U.S. supports “Turkish fight against terrorism and terror group like ISIS and the PKK, and to ensure they have no safe quarter to terror groups.” At the joint statements from the White House, Erdogan said, that it was never be accepted taking Syrian Kurdish YPG in the region into consideration, adding “there is no place for the terrorist organizations in our region.”

Recently, the U.S. decided to arm Syrian Kurdish fighters, which created disagreements in Turkey. Trump on May 16 said, “We are also supporting Turkish leadership in seeking and end to the horrific keeling in Syria, to Syrian civil war shocks, to conscience to whole world.” Prior to the joint statement, Trump met Erdogan in the Oval Room.
