WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama will meet with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan when leaders of the Group of 20 major economies gather in Antalya, Turkey, on Sunday and Monday, the White House said on Thursday.

Obama and Erdogan will have a bilateral meeting on Nov. 15 that will address, in part, the countries' actions against the Islamic State militant group and the situation in war-torn Syria, Ben Rhodes, U.S. deputy national security adviser, said at a White House briefing.

Obama will meet with Canada's new prime minister, Justin Trudeau, at the APEC summit in Manila, the White House said.
