The United States should withdraw Syrian Kurdish militants from the east of the Euphrates river in Syria if it wants to cooperate with Turkey, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday.

Speaking at a congress for his ruling AK Party in the northeastern province of Erzurum, Erdogan also said Ankara remained open to all cooperation offers regarding the Syrian town of Manbij, but was unsure what approach incoming U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo would have on the issue.
