BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 A.M.) – U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton traveled to Ankara on Tuesday to meet with his Turkish counterparts and discuss the situation in Syria.

According to the Saudi-based publication Asharq Al-Awsat, Bolton is in Turkey to discuss the U.S.’ withdrawal from Syria and the planned Turkish military invasion.

The Saudi publication said the visit came after Turkey expressed dissatisfaction over the U.S.’ planned “Skyes-Picot” break-up of Syria.

Citing an unnamed source, Asharq Al-Awsat claimed that Turkey was presented a map by the U.S. recently that showed different zones of influence in Syria.

The unnamed source said Turkey compared the map to the Sykes-Picot plan, which broke-up the Middle East into zones of influence for the British and French after World War I.

Bolton is reportedly trying to ease tensions with Turkey after the U.S. expressed disapproval of their planned operation against the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
