SULAIMANI — US President Donald Trump and Turkish counterpart Tayyip Erdogan agreed to continue close military and political cooperation in a phone call in which Libya and Syria were discussed, the Turkish presidency said on Saturday (May 23).

The two agreed to continue pursuing stability in the Eastern Mediterranean region, it added.

Turkey backs Libya’s internationally recognized government which has made significant military gains in recent weeks in battles with the eastern-based Libyan National Army (LNA) of Khalifa Haftar.
