Senior Turkish and US officials on Friday spoke over the phone about bilateral ties and various regional issues, said a statement by the Presidency of the Republic of Turkey.

Afghanistan, Syria, the Eastern Mediterranean, and Cyprus were also on the agenda during the phone call between Turkey’s presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin and US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, the statement said.

The two sides agreed to continue constructive and strategic cooperation between the two countries after last month’s “positive” meeting between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and US President Joe Biden on the margins of a NATO summit last month, it said.

Turkey is determined to continue its efforts in cooperation with the international community to ensure peace and stability in regional and global issues, the statement added.
