Mr. Erdogan: "I had an opportunity to discuss with Barack the fight that we are conducting against Daesh in Syria. As model and strategic partners we will continue to show solidarity with each other with an understanding towards global peace."

Around 11:45am pool entered the room where President Obama and President Erdogan were to speak. They were not seated in the chairs set up for them, but instead were in another room and entered at.

The meeting was set up inside the lobby of the clubhouse. There were 8 cream-colored leather chairs lining each side of the dark wood floor. In he middle of them were two large white flower arrangements.  At the far end there were two cushy cream-colored arm chairs. A small table was in between them and had a smaller flower arrangement on it.
