Turkish Prez arrives in Washington to meet Trump

"Since July 15, following a deplorable coup attempt, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has systematically persecuted innocent people - arresting, detaining, firing and otherwise ruining the lives of more than 300,000 Turkish citizens", Mr Gulen said, urging the nations of the West to use their moral authority to help reverse the crackdown.

Trump did not address the issue. This war has flared anew since 2015, when the USA gave assurance to the PYD that it would support them in Syria, a step which not only emboldened the PKK against the Turkish government, but also allowed the PYD to launch attacks across the border and to send suicide bombers.

"I would like to congratulate President Trump for the legendary triumph that he has garnered in the aftermath of the elections".

Donald Trump said his meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was "successful", in terms of discussing a joint effort to fight terror group Isis.

Turkey has warned the United States that its decision to arm Kurdish forces fighting Islamic State in Syria could end up hurting Washington, and accused its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally of siding with terrorists.

But the White House views the YPG as a key partner in the fight against Islamic State, and separate from the PKK.

He may also raise the issue of human rights in Turkey, which, according to critics, have greatly deteriorated over the year.

Erdogan called Trump's November victory a point of "awakening" in the Middle East, setting new aspirations, expectations and hopes in the region.

USA generals believe the only way to capture the jihadists' capital, Raqqa, is by backing the Syrian Democratic Forces, which are dominated by Syrian Kurds.

President Donald Trump is welcoming Turkey's president to the White House for their first face-to-face meeting Tuesday, even as Turkish officials fumed over a US decision to arm the Syrian Kurds.

Turkey has been one of the most vocal opponents of Syrian President Bashar al Assad since the civil war in neighboring Syria erupted 6 years ago.

The Trump administration decided last week to begin arming the Kurds in Syria so they can fight against the Islamic State (Isil).

USA military officials have long argued in favor of supporting the Kurds in Syria against ISIS because they are such competent soldiers.

Mr. Trump also offered his appreciation to the Turkish leader in "seeking an end" to the killings in Syria, saying the USA will "suppport any effort that could be used to reduce violence in Syria and create conditions for a peaceful resolution".

A Syrian official says that a northeastern neighborhood of the capital Damascus is now completely under government control after carrying out the second and last phase of a truce agreement in the area.

"Washington, on the other hand, has made it amply clear that Turkey's demands are unlikely to be met because the US has firm positions, or obstacles it can't overcome, that make it very hard to please Ankara", Idiz said. You know, President Erdogan will go home tomorrow on his airplane basically after the meeting with Trump, and then he will hold a gaggle on the plane with sort of self-selected journalists.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Rumors: Dual Cameras And Other Amazing Features
Needless to say, this is the rugged version of the smartphone, just like the case with the Galaxy S7 and its active counterpart. Though the Max in the title suggests a powerful battery, the leaked specifications show more the focus is on the camera front.

Human Rights First notes that Turkey has been an important contributor to alleviating human sufferning by providing refuge to over three million Syrian refugees.

Trump has gone out of his way to foster a good relationship with Erdogan.

He was quick to place a congratulatory call to the president last month after he narrowly won a flawed referendum on a huge expansion of his powers.

Expanding his probe again on Monday, Berman signed a two-page order demanding that Giuliani and Mukasey produce any "work performed for President Trump's administration, including participation on United States commissions, such as those relating to the so-called "Muslim ban" executive order".

Finally, the United States could make some concessions in the case of Reza Zarrab, the Turkish businessman jailed for violating Iran sanctions (former Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani is on Zarrab's legal team).

Foreign allies may see things differently.

National Security Advisor HR McMaster said that "at no time were any intelligence sources or methods discussed and no military operations were disclosed that were not already known publicly".

Trump was to speak to another regional ally, Jordan's King Abdullah II, by phone on Tuesday.

"They presented a lot of documents to help clear the USA stance on YPG".
