Pentagon chief Jim Mattis met today with Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim in London, the most-high profile meeting between American and Turkish officials since the U.S. announced it would arm Kurdish fighters in Syria.

Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White disclosed little about Mattis' meeting with Binali in London, where both men were attending a conference on Somalia.

U.S. airmen had airlifted SDF forces behind IS lines to launch the attack that captured the Tabqa airfield in late March, U.S. General Carlton Everhart, commander of the Air Force's Air Mobility Command, told VOA after the March assault.

U.S. Central Command, which oversees U.S. military operations in the Middle East, said approximately 70 Islamic State fighters had conceded to the SDF's terms, which included dismantling bombs surrounding the dam, surrendering their heavy weapons and withdrawing all remaining fighters from Tabqa. The Wall Street Journal reported the effort could end up doubling the capacity of an intelligence fusion center in Ankara.

The Pentagon said only that Mr Mattis "reiterated USA commitment to our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally".

La jueza Highton de Nolasco pidió licencia en la Corte Suprema
La licencia fue firmada el viernes pasado y tiene, en principio , una extensión de una semana, sin explicitar motivos. Además, pidió que el juez Rafecas adopte "toda otra medida que considere de utilidad para el avance de la pesquisa" .

This is while Yildrim said, "There is still an opportunity for the United States to take Turkey's sensitivities into consideration".

The United States has not yet disclosed a decision on whether it will arm YPG fighters to take Raqqa, Islamic State's de facto capital, and Jim Mattis declined to answer that question after talks with USA allies in Denmark.

Reuters reported it was told by a U.S. official that the United States was looking to boost intelligence cooperation with Turkey to support its fight against the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).

Mattis has played down the friction between the allies, saying that while "it's not always tidy", they will resolve any differences.

Erdogan further emphasized that he would mention the issue in upcoming discussions with Trump when the two are scheduled to meet in Washington on May 16 in their first formal encounter as heads of state.

This crash resulted in suspension damage on the Ferrari and the Red Bull, thus eliminating Raikkonen and Verstappen from the race. The two title rivals jousted after Vettel came out of his second pit stop just inches ahead of the hard-charging Hamilton .

"I hope very much that this mistake will be reversed immediately", Erdogan said. USA officials have indicated that 120 mm mortars, machine guns, ammunition and light armored vehicles were possibilities. Turkey, the European Union and the USA have all branded the PKK a terrorist organization for its decades-long insurgency in southeastern Turkey.

U.S. Air Force Col. John L. Dorrian, U.S. spokesman for the U.S. -led anti-Islamic State worldwide coalition called the Combined Joint Task Force: Operation Inherent Resolve, made the announcement during a webcast press conference on Wednesday.

"Every single one of these weapons that are being provided to our partner force, we intend to account for them, and to ensure that they are pointed at ISIL", he said.

The official, who was not authorized to discuss the issue publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity, also said that the weapons have not started flowing to the Kurds.
