President Trump in the United States and President Erdogan in Turkey met on the phone on the 6th to discuss the situation in northern Syria adjacent to Turkey.
In the north of Syria, the Kurdish forces that the United States cooperated with in the fight against the radical group IS = Islamic State are effectively controlled, but Turkey is strong because this Kurdish force is closely linked to its own terrorist organization. To repel and defend the border, it has been argued that a safety zone will be set up in Syrian territory along the border.
