According to a Turkish Foreign Ministry source, the two officials also discussed the Syrian war, especially at two hot spots: Manbij and Aleppo.

Last week, Turkish Prime Miniser Binali Yildirim declared no compromise with the US on Gulen’s extradition, which is the key to warmer ties between Turkey and the US. Yildirim also ruled out talks about this issue.
