ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION G20 foreign ministers began a second day of meetings in Bonn on Friday (February 17). Discussions of the first meeting focused on the situation in Syria. The meeting coincided with reports from Ankara that the Turkish military was nearing the end of its operation to take control of the northern Syrian city of al-Bab from Islamic State and that the jihadists' resistance had largely been broken. Turkey launched an incursion into Syria last August in support of rebels there, in a bid to drive Islamic State out of a stretch of territory close to the border and prevent Kurdish militia fighters from seizing ground in their wake.
