US President Donald Trump discussed the situation in Libya and Syria with his Turkish counterpart Tayyip Erdogan in a phone call Thursday after the turkish parliament passed a bill allowing troop deployments to Libya to shore up the UN-backed government in Tripoli.

The White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said in a statement that Trump told Erdogan that "foreign interference is complicating the situation in Libya".

The statement added that both leaders agreed on the need for de-escalation in Syria's Idlib to protect civilians, a day after eight people were killed in a Syrian missile strike in the province.
