Turkish, US defense ministers talk over phone

Turkish National Defense Minister Hulusi Akar and his U.S. counterpart James Mattis spoke over the phone, said a Turkish ministry source on Friday.

Akar and Mattis exhanged views on bilateral defense relations, Syria and the fight against terrorism, said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media. 

Syria has been locked in a vicious civil war since early 2011, when the Bashar al-Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protests with unexpected ferocity.
