Turkey, U.S. agree to restore normal ties to ease rising tensions

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Friday that Turkey and the U.S. agreed to normalize their ties, after weeks of rising tensions due to Turkey’s military operation in Syria.

Speaking at a joint press conference with visiting U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Cavusoglu said the two sides will set up mechanisms to address the issues that have strained the bilateral relations.

“Our relations were at a critical turning point,” Cavusoglu said, adding that the two sides are going to either correct this or “it was going to take a turn for the worse.”

The top Turkish diplomat added that the two sides will hold another meeting by mid-March as part of the mechanisms.
