    After the meeting in Antalya

    Hi, I wrote two following sentences, Do you think they are grammatically correct? If both of them are correct grammatically, do they has the same meaning?

    1) "After the meeting in Antalya, that Al-Nusra Front was counted in the list of terror organizations by US has been regarded as a move to accomplish to limit radical islamist organizations in Syria."

    2) "After the meeting in Antalya, US's counting Al-Nusra Front in the list of terror organizations has been regarded as a move to accomplish to limit radical islamist organizations in Syria"

    Re: Which one is correct?

    I'm afraid it's not clear what you are trying to say. Who was at the meeting? What happened there?

    To amplify on SoothingDave's reply, neither of your "sentences" is a sentence. That is why we cannot figure out what you mean.

    Maybe something like this?
    There was a meeting in Antalya where US officials (and other people?) decided to add the Al-Nusra Front to the list of terrorist organizations. This is regarded as an attempt to limit the influence of radical islamist organizations in Syria.

    Re: Which one is correct?

    Let's forget "After the meeting in Antalya", and focus on the rest of the sentence.

    US's adding Al-Nusra to the list of terror organizations has been regarded as an attempt to limit the influence of radical islamist organizations in Syria.

    That US added Al-Nusra to the list of terror organizations has been regarded as an attempt to limit the influence of radical islamist organizations in Syria.

    @krisfromgermany, thank you for your correction. But, the point is, After a meeting in Antalya, US decided to add the Al-Nusra Front to the list of terrorist organizations. My intention is to unite two sentences as a one sentence " 1) US decided to add the Al-Nusra Front to the list of terrorist organizations. 2) This is regarded as an attempt to limit the influence of radical islamist organizations in Syria" Is that possible?

    Re: After the meeting in Antalya

    Enunciate, I have changed your thread title so that it is relevant and unique to this thread. Titles should include some/all of the words/sentences you are querying in your post. Generic titles such as "Which one is correct?" don't work on the forum.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
