Britain's Cameron to ask Turks for more data on foreign fighters

December 9, 2014 15:40

LONDON - Prime Minister David Cameron will use talks in Ankara on Tuesday to ask Turkey to supply Britain with more and swifter information about Britons fighting in Syria and Iraq with Islamic State (IS), his spokesman said.

He is also likely to raise reports that Turkey handed over two captured British IS militants to Islamic State in October as part of a swap to secure the release of Turkish hostages, without consulting Britain.

"Counter-terror is front and center," Cameron's spokesman told reporters in London, describing the visit's purpose.

Cameron is due to meet Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on arrival in Ankara and have an evening meeting with President Tayyip Erdogan.
