Turkey's military announced the meeting in a brief statement.
Turkey, a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally, views the Kurdish group that dominates the Syria Democratic Forces as terrorists and has threatened to drive them from the northern city of Manbij, which the alliance captured from the militants previous year with the aid of USA airstrikes.
The U.S., Russian Federation and Turkey, as well as the forces they support on the ground, all have been active in fighting the Islamic State group, also known as ISIS.
The U.S. already has a standing agreement with Moscow to avoid accidental clashes between both countries' air forces operating in the skies above Syria.
The trilateral meeting in Antalya comes a day after Turkey stepped back from threats to unilaterally strike Kurdish militia deployed in Manbij.
Turkey, however, has labeled Kurdish militants such as those belonging to the People's Protection Units within the SDF as terrorists and has refused to recognize their position in the larger fight against ISIS.

He also said that Hussain complained that the girl tried to make an advance on him, which he turned down. Hussain was arrested after the girl and her parents lodged a complaint with police.
Last week Russian fighters launched airstrikes against a US camp in Syria, which had been training anti-Assad Syrian militiamen battling Islamic State.
In a bid to lower the tensions, U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Joseph Dunford, Russian Chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov and Turkey's Chief of the General Staff Hulusi Akar met in the southern Turkish city of Antalya on Tuesday.
"During the meeting, the parties exchanged views on regional security issues in Syria and Iraq".
Binali Yildirim, Turkey's prime minister, said the meeting would continue on Wednesday.
"It makes no sense to launch an operation in Manbij without the cooperation of Russian Federation and the United States", Yildirim said in a televised interview late on Monday. Turkey has labeled the YPG an affiliate of the separatist Turkish Kurdistan Workers' Party, which Washington and Moscow have designated a terrorist group. Since the fall of rebel-held Aleppo to Syrian government forces, sparked by a blistering Russian aerial bombing campaign, Damascus has been moving to consolidate its hold on the country. Army Lt. Gen. Steven Townsend, the commander of Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve, told Pentagon reporters March 1 that all the forces acting in Syria "have converged literally within hand-grenade range of one another".
