Trump and Erdogan meet amid strained US-Turkey relations

With Turkey beginning the deportation process of Daesh captives held in its prisons back to Europe on Monday, the issue is brought back to the bilateral agenda between Ankara and European Union, whose relations have been strained since the recent military incursion in northern Syria.
Just before boarding a plane to Washington Tuesday, Tayipp Erdogansaid he plans on bringing the issue to President Trump during their talks this week.
In October, Trump moved USA troops in Syria out of the way of invading Turkish troops, a decision that critics said amounted to abandoning America's Kurdish allies to be attacked.
Trump has not yet decided whether to impose congressional sanctions on Turkey for the S-400 purchase. The House's PACT measure designates Ankara's acquisition of the S-400 system as a "significant transaction" with Russia's arms industry.

The group included Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Jim Risch of Idaho. According to worldwide standards, Ankara should repatriate Daesh members who were seized in Turkish territories, while those who were captured in Syria in territories beyond Assad control pose judicial problems. There's no place in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation for significant Russian military purchases. A spokesman said he did not know whether any were Islamic State fighters, but did not contest their citizenship. "Will they weaken President Erdogan or rally the country to his cause?" Risch is working on a bill to "restrict arm sales to Turkey" and "impose new biting sanctions against Turkey and Russian Federation", he announced in October. "It's a little bit awkward to be saying we're going to sanction you because you're buying Russian military equipment, we don't want you buying Russian military equipment", he says, "and so the punishment is you're not allowed to buy American military equipment".
Turkey's offensive was facilitated by President Donald Trump, who abruptly ordered the withdrawal of US troops stationed alongside SDF forces. "A huge proportion of their arsenal comes from the United States".
Erdogan told the White House that Turkey would not have pre-conditions to the S-400 discussion slated for Wednesday, and defended the position that S-400s and F-35s could both be compatible within Turkey's military, sources told Middle East Eye. But Erdogan claims the Kurds have not vacated border areas and says he will give Trump a list of attacks carried out by Mazloum Abdi, the commander of the US-backed Syrian Kurdish-led force. "And then the strategic relationship within North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is really broken".
Seventeen Republican and Democratic members of Congress wrote Trump last week urging him to call off the visit.
Mr Trump argued on Twitter over the weekend that he was not guilty of misconduct and that the probe was politically driven. If that occurs, the 100-seat Republican-controlled Senate would hold a trial on the charges.
