Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will meet on June 4 in Washington D.C., a diplomatic source said on Wednesday.

The two top diplomats have planned to meet in May but their schedules could not match up, said the source on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.

The matters pertaining to bilateral ties, regional issues -- including Syria and recent developments in the Middle East -- combating terrorism, and terror groups like PKK and FETÖ will be discussed during the meeting, the source added.

On April 27, Çavuşoğlu and Pompeo held a bilateral meeting during the NATO foreign ministers summit in Brussels.

Turkey and the U.S. have established working groups to discuss the stabilization of Manbij, Syria and to prevent any undesirable clashes.

Both nations have been trying to iron out a number of issues, principally the issue of terrorist YPG/PKK group in Syria which the U.S. supports as a "reliable ally" in the fight against Daesh.
