Turning point: Turkey comments on talks with US

A telephone call on Friday between U.S. and Turkish leaders, Donald Trump and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, marked a turning point in strained relations between the two countries, , Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said.

"A telephone call on Friday between U.S. and Turkish leaders marked a turning point in strained relations between the two countries," Bozdag noted, adding that Washington must honour a pledge to end weapons provisions to Syrian Kurdish fighters.

"The ‘We will not give weapons’ remarks from a U.S. president for the first time is important, but it will lose value if it is not implemented. It would be deceiving the world," Reuters cited the Deputy Prime Minister as saying.

The White House said on Friday that President Trump informed Erdogan that Washington was adjusting the military support to partners on the ground in Syria.
