United States pullout from Syria to be done in 'prudent' way

Share

This week Sen. Lindsey Graham explicitly mentioned the Iran objective along with fighting ISIS and protecting Kurds as reasons to keep USA troops in Syria.

Turning to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Pompeo said the U.S. would "continue to press for a real and lasting peace" between the parties - offering no details on the anticipated roll-out of the Trump administration's peace plan.

The attack came at a time when Turkish officials are negotiating with their American counterparts over the fate of the weapons supplied to the terrorist group by the USA -backed coalition in the pretext of fighting Daesh terrorists after the US pullout from Syria.

The U.S. presence in Syria has been a bulwark against ISIS in Iraq, and its withdrawal will likely revitalize the group's underground elements throughout the Middle East, Reed said.

Pompeo claimed the U.S. under Obama had been timid about asserting itself, "when the times - and our partners - demanded it", and had emboldened Iran to entrench its influence across the region. Although we had openly discussed with Mr. Trump, different voices from certain circles of the USA administration are now heard.

"When America retreats, chaos follows", Pompeo said.

But the muddled pronouncements from the Trump administration, which swiftly walked back the planned withdrawal of troops from Syria, has triggered regional concern.

But Pompeo used the speech to try to counter criticism that the US decision to withdraw its 2,200 troops from Syria could lead to an ISIS resurgence.

The announcement had shocked USA allies and sparked strong criticism in Washington.

A senior State Department official insisted ahead of the trip the USA will "not leave the Middle East". The official said there's a long process ahead, not only for logistical reasons, but because the diplomacy will take time.

The comments drew the ire of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who called the comments "a serious mistake" on Tuesday.

After meeting Bolton on Tuesday, Kalin also urged Washington to take back all the weapons provided to Syrian Kurdish militia forces.

The trip also follows National Security Adviser John Bolton's visit to Turkey this week, where he was snubbed and then publicly criticized by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan over the shifting USA conditions for a withdrawal from Syria. By Tuesday evening, Erdogan was declining a meeting with the United States national security adviser who had arrived to the Turkish capital.

Mr Bolton has talks for roughly two hours with Ibrahim Kalin, his Turkish counterpart, and other senior officials at Ankara's presidency complex but was snubbed by Mr Erdoğan himself, reflecting just how at odds the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation partners are on the issue. "The timetable flows from the policy decisions that we need to implement", he explained.

Meanwhile, Trump has sparked consternation in Israel after saying that Iran "can do what they want" in Syria, appearing to give Tehran free rein to further entrench itself in the country, though he also said Iran was pulling its forces out of the country.

Since September, Idlib has been shielded from a threatened government offensive by a precarious truce agreed between government ally Russian Federation and rebel backer Turkey.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo just began a tour of eight Middle Eastern nations to discuss the withdrawal of the American troops.

The continued use of this language from top Trump administration officials irks Turkey's tremendously and convinces officials in Ankara that the United States remains out of touch with Turkey's national security dilemmas.
