Trump, Erdogan discuss Syria crisis

The source said that the two leaders agreed to remain in close contact on Syrian issues.

In his remarks in Ankara, Erdoğan criticized both the USA and Russian Federation for their sstance in Syria.

US President Donald Trump has warned Russian Federation, which maintains a military presence in Syria, that US missiles "will be coming" to Syria in retaliation for an alleged chemical weapons attack on April 7 in the Syrian town of Douma.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said earlier in the day that "the Assad regime must leave Syria", alleging the regime has killed almost 1 million people with airstrikes and bombs.

Erdoğan also underlined that Turkey does not intend to give up on its alliance with the USA, its strategic relations with Russian Federation on a range of fields from energy to security or working together with Iran to solve regional problems.

The current situation in the Kurdish-dominated Syrian city of Afrin remains quite tense since it went under the full control of the Turkish military forces in late March as a result of its military offensive in the area dubbed Olive Branch. This comes after he spoke with President Trump Wednesday about preventing future attacks in Syria. If there's any Russian (or Iranian or North Korean) dense enough to still keep assets in these United States, maybe they don't really care about them.

The spokesman added that Turkey was among the sponsors of the draft resolution. On Wednesday, Trump warned Russian Federation, saying U.S. missiles "will be coming", after Moscow reportedly vowed to shoot down missiles.

Turkey s foreign ministry has said it strongly suspects Assad was to blame but Russian Federation has denied that the Damascus regime was responsible.

Several countries led by the US, including France and the United Kingdom, are weighing military strikes in response to the Douma chemical attack.

"Those who support the regime of murderer Assad are making a mistake".

Erdogan said that the number of "neutralised" PKK terrorists in northern Iraq was 337.
