PABRADE TRAINING AREA, Lithuania (Reuters) - U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said on Wednesday he was confident the United States would be able to resolve tensions with Turkey over the U.S. decision to arm Kurdish fighters in Syria, saying: "We’ll work out any of the concerns."

"We will work very closely with Turkey in support of their security on their southern border. It's Europe's southern border, and we’ll stay closely connected," Mattis told reporters during a visit to the Pabrade Training Area in Lithuania.
