Pentagon chief Jim Mattis sought to allay Turkish concerns, saying at a news conference in Lithuania the USA would work very closely with Turkey over security on its border with Syria.

Turkey has threatened to step up military action against Syrian Kurdish fighters allied with the United States, in response to the Trump administration's decision to directly arm the Kurds for an assault on the Syrian city of Raqqa, Turkish officials said.

A Pentagon spokesperson said, both leaders affirmed their support for peace and stability in Iraq and Syria.

Erdogan said the fight against terrorism "should not be led with another terror organization" - a reference to the Syrian Kurdish militia, known as the People's Protection Units, which Turkey considers an extension of the decades-long Kurdish insurgency raging in its southeast.

A US official told Reuters that the United States was looking to boost intelligence cooperation with Turkey to support its fight against the PKK.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, who will meet U.S. President Donald Trump in Washington next week, has voiced hopes Washington might reverse the decision.

Mr Sinan Ulgen, a former Turkish diplomat and analyst at Carnegie Europe, said: "Turkey doesn't have much room to move here".

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

A senior American official said the US will step up joint intelligence-sharing with the Turks in an effort to help them better target terrorists. We'll work out any of the concerns.

This is while Yildrim said, "There is still an opportunity for the United States to take Turkey's sensitivities into consideration". "The United States and Turkey are two major partners in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. This issue is likely to come up when Turkish President Erdogan visits the White House next week".

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

"We expect that this mistake is to be rectified", he said, days ahead of a crunch meeting in Washington between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and USA counterpart Donald Trump.

Col Dorrian said the arms include heavy machine guns to be used against ISIL lorry bombs, mortars, small arms and ammunition, as well as armoured vehicles and equipment to detect landmines.

Cavusoglu said Trump would discuss the issue with Trump during his planned May 16-17 visit to Washington, suggesting there were no plans to call off the talks in protest. A first consignment of weapons is already in place for delivery and could be dispatched to the YPG "very quickly", U.S. Colonel John Dorrian said May 10. "Every weapon seized by them is a threat to Turkey".
