BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:10 P.M.) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump reached an agreement on Friday to enhance their coordination in Syria, the Hürriyet Daily reported .

According to the Hurriyet report, the two leaders held a phone conversation and discussed military operations inside of Syria.

“Turkey’s legitimate security concerns caused by the presence and actions of the terrorist organisation PKK/PYD/YPG”, Erdogan said.

Both leaders agreed that they need to coordinate better in Syria and avoid any potential confrontation.

This phone meeting between Erdogan and Trump comes just days after the former announced that the Turkish military was preparing to launch a new operation east of the Euphrates.
