Turkish officials say President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will hold a telephone conversation with U.S. President Donald Trump — their first since the American leader took office.

Officials from Erdogan’s office said the conversation would take place around 2100 GMT, or 4 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

Turkey’s relations with the United States under the Obama administration were strained, with Ankara frequently expressing frustrations over what it perceives as U.S. reluctance to extradite U.S.-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen, whom Turkey accuses of orchestrating the failed July 15 military coup.

Turkey has also been angered by U.S. support to Syrian Kurdish militia fighting the Islamic State group. Ankara considers the fighters “terrorists” because of their links to Kurdish rebels in Turkey.
