"They discussed our two countries’ shared commitment to fight terrorism in all its forms, and particularly to continue our efforts as members of the global coalition to defeat ISIS [Daesh], Spokesperson Heather Nauert said in a statement, describing the meeting as "productive".

Issues of "mutual concern" were also discussed, she said.
