In addition, the US under President Donald Trump has continued to support the group militarily.

He also addressed the Turkey-EU Summit held on Monday under the leadership of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, European Council President Donald Tusk and EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in Varna, Bulgaria.
