- Story Text:U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson met Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in Istanbul on Sunday (July 9), where they were expected to discuss the rift between Qatar and other Arab states and the Syrian conflict.
Ankara has been deeply at odds with Washington over its Syria policy. It has been incensed in particular by U.S. support for the Kurdish YPG militia, which it views as a terrorist group and an extension of Kurdish militants fighting on its own soil.
Tillerson was scheduled to attend an award ceremony and meet Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev before leaving for Kuwait.
