The two leaders will discuss how to further strengthen their bilateral relationship and deepen their cooperation "to confront terrorism in all its forms." White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said in a statement.

The meeting will take place next Tuesday, on May 16.

Wednesday's announcement came just hours after Erdogan called on the United States to "immediately" reverse its decision to arm Syrian Kurdish fighters, saying the fight against terrorism should "not be lead with another terror organization."

Since taking office in January, Trump has spoken with Erdogan several times by phone. Most recently, on April 17, Trump called Erdogan to congratulate him on the results of a referendum that increased Erdogan's powers.
