Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson (L), US President Donald Trump (C), German Chancellor Angela Merkel (2R), Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan (R) and other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders leave the stage after the family photo to head to the plenary session at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit at the Grove hotel in Watford, northeast of London on December 4, 2019.

The YPG's fighters have always been US and French allies against Islamic State in Syria.

"Frankly, a lot of people have great respect for Turkey for the work that they've done", Trump said. "We will tell them this openly", he said.

The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson met today with Chancellor Merkel, President Macron and President Erdogan to discuss Syria, Libya and Counter-Terrorism.

"NATO needs to act proactively against the threats posed by terrorist organizations", Erdogan said.

A French presidency official said Trump often makes strident statements ahead of bilateral meetings and cools his rhetoric later. "It's a very risky statement for them to make".

Macron accused Turkey of working with "ISIS proxies".

But the turks have been angry over the fact that other Nato countries will not join, you must designate the kurdish group YPG as a terrorist organisation.

The Turkish side said the meeting lasted about 30 minutes.

The defense plans for the Baltics and Poland, who claim they are threatened by Russian Federation, were in limbo after Turkey pledged to block them unless the alliance backs its incursion in Syria and labels Kurdish-led militias a "threat" and designates the biggest group - the People's Protection Units (YPG) - as a terrorist organization.

"And yet you still have many delinquent - you know I call them delinquent when they're not paid up in full", Trump said.

All 29 member states have a target of spending 2% of their gross domestic product on defense and Trump has singled out Germany for falling short of that goal. "So we have to address the rise of China together and I look forward to the allies' doing that at this leaders' meeting for the first time".
