Erdogan and Trump agree to stay in close touch on Syria
US President Donald Trump and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan discussed the crisis in Syria yesterday and agreed to stay in close touch, the White House said in a statement.
"President Donald J. Trump spoke today with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey to discuss the current crisis in Syria. The two leaders agreed to stay in close contact about the situation," the White House said, providing no further details.
Yesterday, Trump threatened action on Syria in response to last Saturday's alleged chemical attack in the militant-held city of Douma that reportedly killed and injured civilians. He tweeted that Russia should get ready for a strike on Syria after Moscow reportedly vowed to shoot down missiles.
