53

U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday continued to defend Washington's relationship with Turkey over his decision to withdraw U.S. troops from northeastern Syria, Yeni Safak reports.

"So many people conveniently forget that Turkey is a big trading partner of the United States, in fact they make the structural steel frame for our F-35 Fighter Jet. They have also been good to deal with," Trump wrote in posts on Twitter.

"Also remember, and importantly, that Turkey is an important member in good standing of NATO," Trump added.

Trump also announced that he will meet with Turkish President Erdoğan on November 13th.
