Pompeo met with Erdogan to discuss the Khashoggi case, but the two men also discussed a range of other issues, including cooperation to address the ongoing civil war in Syria and the Trump administration’s pressure campaign against Iran.

Pompeo said Brunson’s return had greatly improved the rapport between the two NATO allies.

“The fact that Pastor Brunson has now made his way back to the United States, I think, opens up lots of opportunities,” he said.
