Pence meets Erdogan to urge Turkey ends Syria operation

ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and U.S. Vice President Mike Pence met on Thursday to discuss Ankara’s military offensive in northeast Syria, Turkey’s presidency said.

Pence is expected to urge Turkey to halt its offensive against Kurdish fighters in northeast Syria, a day after U.S. President Donald Trump threatened heavy sanctions over the operation.
