Turkish FM: Trump agreed to stop arming Kurdish militia

Erdogan Saudi king talk Sochi summit Syria on phone

In a statement, the Presidency said: "President Erdogan and U.S. President Trump exchanged opinions on Syria crisis and regional issues, as well as Turkey-U.S. bilateral issues".

"The doors of politics, as you are aware, are always open until the last moment", Erdogan added.

Joseph Robinson, a former British soldier, is accused of fighting with the Syrian Kurdish YPG milita.

"Here in Turkey, it's seen as a slap in the face of the government".

The decision would cut the flow of weapons from the United States to the YPG, the Kurdish militia fighting with the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, just six months after Trump approved the plan over Turkey's strenuous objections. Turkey joined Gulf Arab and Western countries in backing insurgent groups as they overran major cities across Syria, but rising jihadi influence began to splinter the opposition and alienate some foreign allies, including the U.S.

Putin met Assad earlier this week at the Black Sea resort of Sochi before a summit with Erdogan and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday aimed at finding a political settlement to the Syria conflict.

Turkey considers the Democratic Union Party (PYD) and its armed wing the YPG the Syrian affiliates of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), a terrorist organization listed by Turkey, the USA and the EU, while the US supports the PYD as its ally on the ground in combating the Islamic State (IS) in Syria. Almost pinched out by the two leading foreign powers in Syria, Turkey has increasingly warmed to Moscow's vision for the war-torn country.

As the Syrian military retook the vast majority of the country, Russian Federation has attempted to carefully balance the competing interests of local and global factions in order to establish a roadmap to peace once ISIS was defeated.
