Macron and Erdogan to discuss Turkey's Syria offensive

Macron, who will meet Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan later in the day ahead of a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, also said he stood by comments he made last month alleging that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is strategically "brain dead".

The YPG's fighters have always been US and French allies against Islamic State in Syria.

Amid fears Erdogan could even veto the summit declaration and with barely two hours to go before the leaders sat down for their sole roundtable, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg admitted a solution to the row with Turkey had still not been found.

President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he was looking at imposing sanctions on Turkey over its purchase of a Russian missile system, blaming his predecessor for not selling Ankara a United States missile system.

Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron traded barbs at the start of talks Tuesday, and later that evening, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was captured on tape, purportedly poking fun at Trump's lengthy news conferences while chatting with Macron and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. "We are strategic partners", he said. He said he believes France alone can't take a hard-line stance on Turkey, whose leader threatened to release millions of migrants from the Middle East into Europe if the European Union criticized him too much.

Resident Evil 3 Remake covers leak ahead of suspected Game Awards reveal
This remains to be seen, with fans hopefully getting the first glimpse of it at the Game Awards 2019 next week. Resident Evil 3 Nemesis had more of an action orientated feel to it than previous games in the RE series.

Speaking after the meeting, Trump blamed the current spat on the Obama administration for refusing to sell the US' Patriot missile system to Turkey.

Macron accused Turkey of working with "ISIS proxies".

President Donald Trump on Wednesday morning participated in an unannounced meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, following months of scrutiny over the administration's posture toward Ankara and controversial shifts in Syria policy.

Some of Turkey's western allies, particularly France, have sharply criticised Ankara's operation in northern Syria, which has targeted the Kurdish militia fighters who helped defeat the Islamic State group.

Trump cited in particular Germany as falling short, spending only 1.2 percent of GDP. "So we have to address the rise of China together and I look forward to the allies' doing that at this leaders' meeting for the first time".
