ISTANBUL — Turkey and the United States agree on the need to ramp up support for Sunni Arab forces in Syria to cut off the Islamic State group’s access to the Turkish border and to prevent future terror attacks, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said Saturday.
Speaking during a joint press conference with Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, Biden said cutting off that access is “a priority for both of our nations, so that we can prevent new fighters and equipment from reaching ISIL and conducting attacks against civilians.”
