Turkey will tell U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson the two countries must repair damaged mutual trust, its foreign minister said on Tuesday, following a series of disagreements, especially over the Syria crisis.Relations between the NATO allies have been strained by U.S. support for the YPG Kurdish militia in Syria. Turkey considers the YPG a terrorist group, but it is a key component of U.S.-backed forces battling Islamic State in Syria. Turkey is targeting the YPG in an air and ground operation in Syria’s northwest Afrin region launched two weeks ago. President Tayyip Erdogan has promised to sweep the militia from Turkey’s southern border, a move that could put Turkish troops in confrontation with U.S. forces on the ground in Syria. “Our trust is damaged. We have to mend our trust. The contacts between us are important,” Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told broadcaster TGRT Haber in an interview. More»

Iran urged Turkey on Monday to stop its military offensive in Syria, saying the operation in the northern Afrin region breached Syrian sovereignty and would increase tension in the war-damaged country.Turkey last month launched an air and ground campaign, dubbed Operation Olive Branch, against the Kurdish YPG militia in Afrin. “Turkey should stop its operation and respect Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi was quoted as saying by state news agency IRNA.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday she was proud of the country's healthcare system, responding to comments by U.S. President Donald Trump who tweeted that the service was "going broke and not working." "The prime minister is proud of having an NHS that is free at the point of delivery. NHS funding is at a record high and was prioritized in the budget with an extra 2.8 billion pounds ($3.9 billion)," the spokesman told reporters. "In the recent the Commonwealth Fund international survey the NHS was rated the best in the world for a second time. Trump drew a fierce reaction from angry Britons, including Health Minister Jeremy Hunt, after criticizing Britain's publicly funded National Health Service. More»

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence declined to rule out talks with North Korean officials while attending Winter Olympics events in South Korea, even as he urged the isolated regime to abandon it nuclear program. “I haven’t requested any meeting, but we’ll see what happens,” Pence told reporters at Elmendorf Air Force Base, Alaska, before departing for Tokyo. “My message -- whatever the setting, whoever’s present -- will be the same. And that is that North Korea must once and for all abandon its nuclear weapons program and ballistic missile ambitions.” Pence said the purpose of his trip to Japan and South Korea was to make sure North Korea didn’t use event to paper over truth about its regime, adding that the U.S. would “be telling the truth about North Korea at every stop.” He will be ready with some counter-programming when the two Koreas enter the Olympic opening festivities together under one flag. Beside the vice president in the stands will be the father of Otto Warmbier, the American student who died last year after being jailed in North Korea -- a stark reminder of the cruelty undergirding Kim Jong Un’s regime, an administration official said.

Russian jets intensified their raids on rebel-held towns and cities in Syria’s northern Idlib province on Sunday night, a day after rebels shot down a Russian warplane and killed its pilot.Civil defense sources said air raids struck the towns of Kafr Nubl and Maasran, as well as the cities of Saraqeb, Maarat al Numan and Idlib, and that several deaths and dozens of injuries were reported as rescuers dug through the rubble. A hospital was hit in Maarat al Numan, witnesses and residents said, and at least five people were feared killed in another attack that damaged a residential building in Kafr Nubl. Video recorded by rescuers showed babies on stretchers being rushed by civil defense workers out of the damaged hospital while other rescuers fought to extinguish a fire. More»

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan flew to Italy on Sunday ahead of talks with Pope Francis that are expected to center on Jerusalem after U.S. President Donald Trump recognized the holy city as the capital of Israel.Jerusalem is home to sites holy to the Muslim, Jewish and Christian religions, and Trump’s recent announcement that he would move the U.S. embassy to the city alarmed many allies, who say the decision could doom Middle East peace efforts. Erdogan previously clashed with the pope when Francis, in 2015, became the first head of the Roman Catholic Church to publicly call the 1915 killing of as many as 1.5 million Armenians “genocide” -- something Turkey has always denied. But the two men have found common ground over Jerusalem, speaking by phone after Trump made his announcement in December and agreeing that any change to the city’s status should be avoided.Before leaving Turkey, Erdogan said the United States had isolated itself over Jerusalem, which the Palestinians want to share with the Israelis as their future capital.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said her conservatives faced tough negotiations with the Social Democrats (SPD) on Sunday as they seek to form a coalition government and it was unclear when the two blocs would be able to wrap up the talks. More than four months after a national election, Europe's largest economy remains in political limbo without a new government. The two camps want to agree by the end of Sunday to renew the "grand coalition" that has governed since 2013 but some politicians say talks could run into Monday or Tuesday. "It's not yet possible to say how long it will last — we did good groundwork yesterday but there are still important issues that need to be resolved," Merkel said before heading into negotiations.

Iran accused the United States on Sunday of threatening Russia with new atomic weapons after Washington published a document outlining plans to expand its nuclear capabilities to deter others.The review of U.S. nuclear policy published on Friday has riled Russia, which viewed the document as confrontational, and raised fears that it could increase the risk of miscalculation between the two world powers. “The Americans are shamelessly threatening Russia with a new atomic weapon,” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, a pragmatist who opened the way to Tehran’s 2015 nuclear deal with world powers including longtime adversary Washington, said in a speech.

South African President Jacob Zuma is under growing pressure to step down. He and senior members of his African National Congress (ANC) party held talks on Sunday, and party leaders are to hold an emergency meeting on Monday. South African media report that Mr Zuma has defied his party and refused to resign as leader, but details of their meeting have not been released. Mr Zuma, who faces corruption allegations, was replaced as ANC leader by Cyril Ramaphosa in December. Julius Malema, an opposition leader and former ANC member, said on Twitter that Mr Zuma had refused to stand down.Mr Zuma, who spent time in prison for his part in the fight against apartheid, is most of the way through his second - and last - term as president.

French President Emmanuel Macron’s party lost two by-elections for parliamentary seats on Sunday in the first electoral test since it won a commanding majority last June.The two lower house seats were won by the conservative Republicans party, in a boost for its new leader, Laurent Wauquiez, a hard-hitting critic of Macron. Wauquiez dismisses Macron as out of touch with rural France and weak on security. Macron, whose pro-Europe, pro-business Republic On The Move party still controls 309 seats in the 577-seat National Assembly, has seen his popularity wane since he took power. “It’s a blow which severely punishes the government’s policies whose impact on the ground is being judged harshly by our fellow citizens: tax rises for the middle class and pensioners and an unprecedented explosion in immigration and crime,” Wauquiez said in a statement.
