SULAIMANI — Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday (November 12) he would tell President Donald Trump that the United States has not fulfilled its agreement last month to remove the Syrian Kurdish YPG from a region along Turkey’s border.

It is “impossible to say” that the “terrorists” have withdrawn from the strip of northeast Syria, Erdogan told reporters before a flight to Washington where he is scheduled to meet Trump at the White House on Wednesday.
