Erdogan prefers to discuss Syria with Putin rather than Trump - media
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has no plans to discuss the Syrian settlement with US President Donald Trump, the Turkish media reported.
Erdogan stressed that he would maintain contact with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to Daily Sabah.
The news of the security border forces first emerged on Saturday, when the public affairs officer of the US-led coalition, Col. Thomas Veale, said that the coalition was training the SDF to create a 30,000-strong force to maintain security along Syria's borders.
The statement prompted condemnation from Damascus, which called these activities acts of aggression and occupation.
