President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his German counterpart Frank-Walter Steinmeier discussed Turkey's Afrin operation late Wednesday in a phone call.
During the call, both officials also reiterated willingness to improve bilateral relations.
On Jan. 20, Turkey launched Operation Olive Branch to clear YPG/PKK and Daesh terrorists from Afrin, northwestern Syria.
PYD/YPG is the Syrian offshoot of the PKK terrorist organization that has waged a more than 30-year war against Turkey.
More than 1,200 people, including security force personnel and civilians, have lost their lives since the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and EU -- resumed its decades-old armed campaign in July 2015.
