Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan Friday said Russia-US tensions over Syria appeared to be easing, after Moscow and Washington traded bitter accusations over potential American military action.However, the White House said on Thursday that Trump had not yet made a "final decision" on how to respond to the attack in Syria which reportedly killed dozens.Instead, it has sought to warn both sides ease off the pressure, with Erdogan saying on Thursday that Syria should not become an arena for geopolitical "arm-wrestling".The West has blamed the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad for the attack, while the Turkish foreign ministry has also said it strongly suspects the government was behind it.
