US President Donald Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have called for international efforts to prevent the humanitarian crisis in the Syrian northwestern province of Idlib, the White House said on Tuesday.
“The President spoke with Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany this morning to discuss a range of issues of mutual interest, including crisis resolution in Syria… Both leaders called for international actions to prevent humanitarian crisis in Idlib province,” the statement read.
Comment: Hmmm… Sounds like Trump was inspired by Merkel and Putin’s recent meeting and discussions:
Iran deal, Syrian crisis and Nord Stream 2: Putin, Merkel find common ground on tough intl issuesTrump is deliberately pushing Germany and Russia to make deals in order to shuffle the deck
Trump and Merkel also discussed the economic relations between the United States and the European Union, which have been recently troubled by the US tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, according to the statement.
