Joint US-Turkey action 'could take Daesh stronghold'
Turkish foreign minister says military cooperation could see forces advance on Syrian city

ANTALYA, Turkey (AA) - Joint military action between Turkey and the U.S. could help defeat Daesh in Syria, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said late Sunday.

Speaking to reporters at the end of a conference in Antalya, southern Turkey, Cavusoglu said such an operation could “easily advance to Raqqah”, the group’s stronghold in northern Syria.

The U.S.-led coalition is currently supporting two offensives against Daesh in Iraq and Syria.

In western Iraq, the Iraqi army is attempting to retake Fallujah while in northern Syria the Syrian Democratic Forces, which include the PKK-affiliated YPG, are heading towards Raqqah.

Turkey has designated the YPG as a terrorist group although Washington supports the group as an “effective partner” in the fight against Daesh.
