President Obama wants to discuss the recent attempted coup in Turkey “as well as our counter ISIL campaign and our efforts that promote stability in Syria and to respond to the refugee crisis,” Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes told reporters. The meeting is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 4.

President Barack Obama earlier in June rejected suggestions the US was behind a failed coup in Turkey, voicing strong support for the government in Ankara and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
