John Bolton arrives in Turkey to discuss Syria

<p style="text-align:left">U.S. President Donald Trump&amp;rsquo;s national security adviser John Bolton has arrived in Ankara with a color-coded map of Syria, put together by new U.S. Special Representative James Jeffery, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal.

The color-coded map is said to have regions highlighted as zones where Turkish soldiers are &ldquo;prohibited&rdquo; from entering, in order to &ldquo;share control&rdquo; with &ldquo;Kurds&rdquo; in northern Syria.
&ldquo;Mr. Jeffrey and his State Department team have created a color-coded map of northeastern Syria in an attempt to negotiate a power-sharing plan that could avert a costly Turkish-Kurdish fight in the area,&rdquo; the article stated.
John Bolton arrived from Israel in Turkey on Monday, as the U.S. begins its withdrawal of military forces from Syria.
Bolton said he would discuss security issues within the region, as well as next steps in the fight against Daesh as the U.S. leaves the area.
"We will discuss our continued work confronting security challenges facing allies and partners in the region, including the next phase of the fight against IS, as the U.S. begins to bring troops home from Syria," Bolton said on Twitter.
In a surprising move, U.S. President Donald Trump on Dec. 19 announced the withdrawal of 2,000 troops from Syria. Trump made the decision during a phone call with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
