U.S. President Donald Trump’s national security advisor, H.R. McMaster, will visit Istanbul this weekend and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will visit the Turkish capital Ankara next week, it was announced on Feb. 6. 

The official visits come amid heightened tension between the United States and Turkey, with the latter staging an ongoing military operation into the Syrian district of Afrin against the Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG).
