Erdogan said he raised the issue of the state-owned Halkbank, which had an executive charged in New York for taking part in a scheme to evade U.S. sanctions on Iran. Turkey maintains Halkbank did not violate the sanctions.
Erdogan says Trump "said he would immediately instruct his ministers about this." It was not clear what Trump could do. They also discussed joint military patrols in Manbij in northern Syria. Erdogan says he will meet with Trump in France next weekend.
