BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told reporters on Tuesday that he will likely meet with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin to discuss the recent decision by Donald Trump to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria.

According to the Reuters News Agency, Erdogan did not disclose the date of his future meeting with Putin; however, his Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu will be traveling to Moscow in the next few days to discuss the U.S. withdrawal from Syria.

Erdogan has been ecstatic since Trump announced that the U.S. armed forces were withdrawing from Syria; he has since taken the diplomatic offensive against the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), claiming they are terrorists occupying Syrian territories.

In response, the Syrian Democratic Forces have sent a delegation to Damascus to discuss a possible joint partnership to thwart the Turkish incursion east of the Euphrates.
