AFP: Turkey hails Pompeo comments over defence against 'terrorists'12 January 2019 | 22:57 | FOCUS News Agency
"We find correct his statement about the removal of the elements that concern Turkey," Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said in a speech in the southern Turkish province of Antalya.
Cavusoglu spoke on the phone Saturday with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who was in Abu Dhabi as part of a regional tour, and they discussed "the steps that need to be taken" in Syria, he said.
The latest comments follow tensions between the US and Turkey over the fate of Washington's Syrian Kurdish allies in the fight against Islamic State group jihadists.
