President Donald Trump says he and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan talked about the planned U.S. military pull out from Syria during a "long and productive call" Sunday.

Trump gave few details about his conversation. But he tweeted he and Erdogan discussed Islamic State, trade, and what he called "the slow and highly coordinated pullout of U.S. troops from the area."

Erdogan's office said in a statement he and Trump agreed to "ensure coordination between their countries' military, diplomatic, and other officials to avoid a power vacuum which could result following any abuse of the withdrawal and transition phase in Syria."

Erdogan said late last week that Turkey is postponing an operation against Kurdish forces in Syria in the wake of Trump's decision.

Trump has declared Islamic State defeated and says it is time for other members of the anti-ISIS coalition to step in and clean up the last remaining pockets.
