Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu will meet with U.S. counterpart Mike Pompeo in Washington on June 4, diplomatic sources said Wednesday.
Axar.az informs citing DS.
Previously, the two ministers were scheduled to meet in May, but the meeting was postponed to June.
They are expected to discuss the developments in Syria and the Middle East, bilateral relations, terrorist groups and the fight against PKK and the Gulenist Terror Group (FETÖ), sources said.
Turkey and the U.S. agreed to build a mechanism during former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's last visit to Ankara.
Cavusoglu was supposed to meet with Tillerson on March 19 to discuss a roadmap for Syria's Manbij, including the withdrawal of the People's Protection Units (YPG), and the return of weapons handed to the terrorists by the U.S. However, Trump's unexpected move to replace him with Pompeo suddenly changed plans.
Cavusoglu met with Pompeo at a NATO meeting in Brussels on April 27.
