Donald Trump has asked Turkey's President Erdogan to end military actions in Syria. Turkey attacked towns in northern Syria last week after the USA pulled out some troops. Turkey attacked Kurdish fighters to create a buffer on its border. Mr Trump called for a ceasefire and for talks with the Kurds. The US asked Turkey to stop the invasion, and to "begin to negotiate with Kurdish forces in Syria to bring an end to the violence".

Turkey said it would continue its actions in Syria, despite calls from around the world to stop. Mr Erdogan said: "We will never declare a ceasefire....The US is announcing sanctions....We are not worried about sanctions." He added: "The world missed its opportunity to prevent...pulling an entire region into a maelstrom of instability." He said the whole world should support Turkey. Mr Trump said: "It is not our problem. It is time for us to go home."
