Erdogan, Trump Agree To Act Together On al-Bab, Raqqa In Syria - Reuters

Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan and US President Donald Trump agreed in a phone call to act together on the ISIS-held Syrian towns of al-Bab and Raqqa, Reuters reported on Wednesday, citing Turkish presidential sources.

“The two leaders discussed issues including a safe zone in Syria, the refugee crisis and the fight against terror, the sources said. They said Erdogan called on the United States not to support the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia.

The Turkish sources also said CIA Director Mike Pompeo was to visit Turkey on Thursday to discuss the YPG and battling the network of U.S.-based Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen, whom Turkey accuses of orchestrating a July coup attempt,” Reuters’ article reads.

Earlier this month, reports appeared that the Trump administration had found “huge gaps” in the plan of an assault of Raqqah prepared by the Obama administration. As a result, the decision was reportedly made to prepare a new plan of the operation.
