The Turkish and American foreign ministers discussed the developments in Iraq and Cyprus over the phone on March 16.
The Kerry-Davutoğlu talk was focused on the developments in Iraq as tension between Iraqi Kurds and the Shiite government has escalated recently. Both countries are concerned that the tension will bring an armed conflict to the already unstable region.
Washington also voiced concern about Turkey’s approach to the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) for accomplishing multi-billion dollar energy deals although the central and regional governments could not settle their disputes over how to share oil revenues.
The two men have also evaluated the results of the presidential elections in Greek Cyprus and whether a new peace process could be launched.
