Trump knew about scope of Syria op - Erdogan's aide

"I don't know what he [President Trump] meant by some of those tweets, but I would guess he is concerned about the limits [of the operation]," Senior Adviser to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday, adding that Trump "knows what the scope of this operation is."

Speaking to CNN's Christiane Amanpour, Gulnur Aybet said the two leaders have "reached an understanding over precisely what this operation is" and would actually meet in early November to "discuss further details."

Asked to comment on the recent news that the US has effectively shut off Turkey from the north-east Syria airspace, Aybet replied: "We are carrying out airstrikes in that area, so I believe that answers your question."
