Mattis says U.S. will work to stay aligned with Turkey despite diplomatic tensions


U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said on Wednesday that military relations with Turkey had been unaffected by diplomatic tensions between the two countries and he would continue to work closely with his Turkish counterparts, APA reports quoting Reuters.
