US President Donald Trump and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan discussed the crisis in Syria yesterday and agreed to stay in close touch, the White House said in a statement.

US President Donald Trump threatened action on Syria this week over alleged in response to alleged chemical attack in the militant-held city of Douma.

The presidents exchanged views following a suspected chemical attack during the weekend in Douma, a Syrian town northeast of capital Damascus, Turkey's state-run Anadolu Agency reported.

While Turkey is cooperating with both Russian Federation and Iran to wind down some of the violence in Syria, Ankara has long demanded that President Bashar al-Assad must go and has backed rebels against him.

Erdoğan also underlined that Turkey does not intend to give up on its alliance with the US, its strategic relations with Russian Federation on a range of fields from energy to security or working together with Iran to solve regional problems.

"Dividing Syria through terror groups is equally wrong as protecting the regime that attacks its own citizens with chemical and conventional weapons", the president said.

Turkey itself is in the midst of a military operation in northern Syria, where it is battling Kurdish forces allied to the US. This comes after he spoke with President Trump Wednesday about preventing future attacks in Syria.

"If an attack occurs against the forces [in Syria] backed by Russian Federation or there is an attack by the USA -supported forces, Russian Federation won't be able to stay away, otherwise it will lose its influence". The United Nations Security Council adopted a resolution on February, 24, calling for a month-long ceasefire in Syria.

Trump tweeted: "Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria".

Turkey considers the YPG, which is backed by the United States in the fight against Islamic State, to be a terrorist organisation.

Airstrikes on PKK targets in northern Iraq, where the terror group has its main base in the Mt. Qandil region, near the Iranian border, have been carried out regularly since July 2015, when the PKK resumed its armed terror campaign.
