U.S. President Donald Trump and Turkish counterpart Tayyip Erdogan agreed to continue close military and political cooperation in a phone call in which Libya and Syria were discussed, the Turkish presidency said on Saturday, BAKU.NEWS reports citing Reuters.

The two agreed to continue pursuing stability in the Eastern Mediterranean region, it added.
