    The U.S. pressure Turkey to support Syrian's pullout from Lebanon

    U.S ambassador to Turkey, Eric Edelman said that he hoped Turkey would join the international community in supporting the UN Security Council's Resolution 1559 which calls on Syria to immediately pullout troops from Lebanon.

    Turkey has been silent over the issue of its southern most neighbor and the pullout of troops from Lebanon, but the U.S. is calling for Turkey to back the resolution.

    It is no secret that Turkey's and Syria's relationships have been strained in the past over accusations of "Syrian support for the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK)", which were assuaged when Syria extradited Abdullah Ocalan, leader of the PKK, from Syria to Turkey.

    The Prime Ministers have met over the past few months and there are plans for more meetings to take place in the coming months.
