US Troop Withdrawal From Syria Will Happen, Says Mike Pompeo

Pompeo Visits Middle East to Increase Pressure on Iran

Pompeo Visits Middle East to Increase Pressure on Iran

He is also scheduled to deliver a speech at the American University of Cairo on the topic of U.S. involvement in the Middle East and Iran's destabilising role in the region. Specifically, Salih said he would like to see the U.S. help in the reconstruction of Iraq and rebuilding the country's economy, according to a statement from his office. He told you 9/11 led my country to abandon its ideals, particularly in the Middle East.

He and other administration officials have worked to slow Trump's order to remove USA forces and to reassure allies like Israel of America's commitment to the region, The Times reported.

Turkey and the United States are at loggerheads over the future of Syrian Kurdish forces after US President Donald Trump made a surprise announcement last month to pull out 2,000 troops from Syria.

He also gets along with White House adviser and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner in addition to having good relations with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Karasik said he believed that energy issues were "another important facet of the visit" along with discussions over the sanctions regime (regarding Iran) and the "logistic flow of oil in the region and protection of that flow".

"That arsenal is aimed squarely at our ally Israel". "And so are the policies that produce so much needless suffering", Pompeo said. He cited accomplishments under Trump's leadership - including the pushback of Islamic State, the withdrawal of more troops and personnel from Iraq and Saudi Arabia, and building a coalition to push back against Iranian influence. We have rediscovered our voice. We have rebuilt our relationships. "We have rejected false overtures from enemies".

In a call, Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron spoke of "the commitment of the United States and France to the destruction of Isis as well as plans for a strong, deliberate, and coordinated withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria", the White House said.

"We have defeated ISIS in Syria, my only reason for being there during the Trump Presidency", Trump tweeted that day, adding that USA troops would leave in the next 30 days. "ISIS continues - we fight them in many regions around the country".

He said that "In Lebanon, Hezbollah remains a major presence, but we won't accept this status quo".

From Cairo, Pompeo is scheduled to head to the capitals of the six Gulf Arab states to make his case.

"New bonds are taking root that were unimaginable until very recently", he said, pointing to Prime Minister Netanyahu's trip past year to the sultanate of Oman, a country with which Israel has no formal ties.

Safadi expressed concern over Iran's hegemonic ambitions, saying, "We all have problems with Iran's expansionist policies in the region". Pompeo has begun a Mideast visit to talk to regional leaders about ramping up pressure on Iran.

US President Barack Obama speaks in Cairo on June 4, 2009.

In a rebuttal to the speech, a group of mainly former Obama administration foreign policy officials rejected Pompeo's assertions as petty and weak. "That's fine, you all write what you like, but the President's been very clear, and (national security adviser John) Bolton and I have been very clear about this too, that the threat from radical Islamic terrorism is real", Pompeo said in Cairo.

The detention comes after the Kurdish militia said in a press release on Sunday that they shut down a terrorist cell which consisted of two United States national citizens, two Pakistanis, and, allegedly, a man from Dublin.

"Gen. Dunford did not say this during his meetings [Tuesday] with Turkish defense officials", a Joint Staff statement said. "Everyone understands what the United States is doing", he told reporters as he headed on a Middle East visit.

Before his arrival in Ankara, Bolton said that no US troops would leave northern Syria until Turkey agreed to not attack the Syrian Kurds.
