ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey and the United States agreed to fight all “terrorist organisations” together, including Islamic State, the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) and the U.S.-based Muslim cleric Fetullah Gulen network in a phone call between their presidents, the Turkish presidency said on Friday.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and U.S. President Donald Trump also discussed recent developments in Syria, bilateral ties and a summit in Russia’s Sochi during the call, the presidency said.
