Erdogan, Trump discuss Syria

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan struck back at worldwide investors on Thursday, saying that no one could bring the country to heel by using exchange rates, casting a precipitous fall in the lira currency as a conspiracy from outside.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his US counterpart Donald Trump talked about the latest developments in Syria in a phone call Wednesday, according to the Turkish presidency.

His comments came after the lira plumbed record lows for five straight trading days, a sell-off that Erdogan and his ministers called an economic attack by outside forces.

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.

Presidential sources said that the two leaders agreed to maintain the dialogue. Trump also blamed Moscow for being partners with "a gas killing animal", referring to Syria's Bashar al-Assad.

The presidents exchanged views following a suspected chemical attack during the weekend in Douma, a Syrian town northeast of capital Damascus, Turkey's state-run Anadolu Agency reported.

And in recent months, Turkey has worked closely with Russian Federation despite their differences.

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.

On January 20, Turkey launched Operation Olive Branch to clear YPG/PKK-Daesh terrorists from Afrin.

Airstrikes on PKK targets in northern Iraq, where the terror group has its main base in the Mt. Qandil region, near the Iranian border, have been carried out regularly since July 2015, when the PKK resumed its armed terror campaign.
