President Trump to Meet Turkish President on 16 May

President Donald Trump will meet with his Turkish counterpart in Washington, DC next week, the White House said Wednesday.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan will visit the US and is scheduled for a state visit to the White House on 16 May for a meeting with Pesident Trump.

The topic: combating Terrorism in the Middle East and Europe

 “The 2 leaders will discuss how to further strengthen our bilateral relationship and deepen our cooperation to confront terrorism in all its forms,” a White House statement read.

On Tuesday, President  Trump approved a Pentagon plan to provide heavier arms to Kurdish militants in Syria in the ongoing fight against the Islamic State (ISIS).

Turkey opposes the Pentagon’s plan, with its Deputy Prime Minister Nurettin Canikli calling it “unacceptable.”

 Turkey believes the Kurdish militants, known as YPG, are an extension of the Kurdistan Workers Party, which the US, Turkey, and Europe consider a terror group.
