Trump and Turkey's Erdogan discuss northern Syria - Turkish presidency

ISTANBUL, Nov 1 (Reuters) - Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan and U.S. President Donald Trump discussed Manbij and Idlib in northern Syria in a call on Thursday, the Turkish presidential office said.

Turkish and U.S. forces began joint patrols on Thursday in the Manbij region, a source of friction in recent years after Kurdish forces took part of the area in a U.S.-backed offensive to drive out Islamic State in 2016.
