The council, headed by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, added that the same approach would also be extended to all other militant groups operating to the east of the Euphrates.

Six Turkish troops have been killed and seven wounded after Kurdish militants attacked a miltary base in the southeast of the country.

The sources initially said five soldiers were killed.It was not clear when the attack occurred.

Macron met Thursday in Paris with delegates from the SDF and "saluted" their efforts against Islamic State, which remains France's priority, according to a statement the president's office.

A Kurdish official told Reuters after Thursday's meeting that Macron had promised to send more troops to northern Syria. Ankara says Syrian Kurdish militiamen it views as "terrorists" and an extension of Kurdish insurgents inside Turkey is in control of the town.

"Those who enter into cooperation and solidarity with terror groups against Turkey ... will, like the terrorists, become a target of Turkey". "We hope France does not take such an irrational step".

Leaders of Two Koreas Meet on April 27th
Suga declined to say if a meeting between Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is being discussed. However, the North has yet to officially confirm its interest in a summit between the leaders.

Turkish military has defused almost 650 improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and 80 landmines since the start of Operation Olive Branch in northwestern Syria's Afrin, according to military sources. Macron was the first Western leader to warn against the possibility of the Turkish operation in Afrin turning into an "invasion of Syrian territories".

A United Kingdom defense ministry spokesman said the British armed forces member was killed during an operation against the Islamic State group.

"Turkey may push for al-Assad to go, but it is hard to say it has the means to impose that", remarked Yavuz, who teaches at Istanbul Ayvansaray University.

Erdogan hit out at France, saying it "still had yet to give an account for its dirty and bloody past" and that "after this stance, it no longer had the right to complain about terror organisations, terrorists and terror attacks".

"Do not engage in things beyond you, we do not need a mediator", he said in a speech to members of his ruling AK Party in the Turkish capital Ankara. He said Macron only offered renewed political support for the Syrian Democratic Forces, promising to "continue this fight together".
