The US and Turkey remain committed to “addressing their common concerns in a spirit of allied partnership,” said a joint statement from the countries on Monday.
Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs Mevlut Cavusoglu and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met earlier in the day to discuss bilateral and regional issues.
During their discussion, they reaffirmed their “joint resolve to fight terrorism in all its forms and manifestations,” said the statement.
They considered the recommendations of the Turkey-US Working Group on Syria regarding the future of bilateral cooperation, including taking steps to ensure the security of Manbij.
“They endorsed a Road Map to this end and underlined their mutual commitment to its implementation, reflecting agreement to closely follow developments on the ground,” the statement said.
Cavusoglu and Pompeo discussed Turkey-US relations and agreed to hold further meetings to “resolve current outstanding issues in the bilateral relationship,” it said.
After the meeting, an initial session of the Working Group on Judicial and Other Issues was held.
