The United States president Donald Trump met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the White House exchanging opinions about future cooperation between two countries, which are allies in many of the international organizations. 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.”
