U.S's Tillerson says discussed Syria stabilization zones with Turkey

ANKARA (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Thursday his talks during a visit to NATO ally Turkey had focused on the creation of stabilization zones in Syria and that a number of options on how to secure such areas were being explored.

Tillerson told a joint news conference with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu that Turkey was a key partner in the fight against Islamic State. He also said the two nations shared a goal of reducing Iran’s potential to disrupt the region.
