ANKARA, TURKEY (AP) - President Barack Obama has beckoned for Turkey’s help in working with the United States to promote a Mideast peace agreement, while acknowledging that “the road ahead will be difficult.”

Obama also said that peace in the region would also be advanced “if Iran forgoes any nuclear weapons ambitions” and both the U.S. and Turkey support negotiations between Israel and Syria.
