The U.S. has "lots of things to work with on the Turks" and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Newsmax TV on Thursday.

"There are places where they are very supportive of the things that Americans care about, which keep Americans safe," Pompeo told Newsmax TV host John Bachman in an exclusive interview at the State Department in Washington.

"There are other places where we have real concerns," the secretary added. "We still have Americans who are being held there.

"The conversation with the Turks continues."
