Turkey, US discuss fight against "all kind of" terrorism in region
Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin and US National Security Adviser Gen. H.R. McMaster discussed the fight against terrorism over the phone, Anadolu News Agency reported on Saturday.

According to a statement released by the Turkish presidency, the importance of strategic partnership between the two countries and the fight against "all kind of" terrorism in the region, particularly PKK, ISIS, and al-Qaeda was emphasized during the phone conversation.


The PKK/PYD is the Syrian offshoot of the PKK terrorist group, which has been designated a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and the EU.


Kalin and McMaster agreed that Syria's stabilization through a "reliable" political transition, which will not threaten its neighbors, will contribute to the peace and security of the region.


They also confirmed the importance of Iraq's territorial integrity for the region's welfare and stability.
