Erdoğan, Trump discussed regional stability and development over phone

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan held a telephone conversation with his U.S. counterpart, President Donald Trump while he is in an official visit to Kazakhstan.

According to presidential sources Erdoğan and Trump discussed regional developments.

The two leaders emphasized the importance of strategic partnership and cooperation between their two countries in order to ensure stability in the Middle East.

They also agreed to hold a meeting on the side-lines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York which will be held on 18th of September.

Relations between Ankara and Washington have soured over U.S. support for YPG, the PKK terrorist organization's Syrian Branch.

Though Turkey repeatedly urged US that it should stop supporting YPG, Washington insisted that the group is the most effective partner in the fight against Daesh.

Turkey reiterated that one terrorist group cannot be defeated by using another terrorist group.
