U.S. President Donald Trump’s choice to pull back every single American troop from Syria is “clear”, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Wednesday.
He was addressing columnists at the U.S. Department General in Erbil, Iraq.
Pompeo made the comments in light of an inquiry concerning whether a condition set by the U.S. for the pullout that expects Turkey to guarantee not to assault the PYD/YPG, the Syrian branch of the PKK fear association, put the withdrawal in danger.
He said the U.S. was conversing with the PYD/YPG and Ankara on the best way to effectuate the pullout in a “way that secures our powers, ensures that the Americans are protected.
“We will finish the mission of bringing down the last components of the caliphate before we withdraw,” said Pompeo, alluding to the Daesh fear association.
Last December, Trump reported plans to pull back all U.S. troops from Syria, guaranteeing that American powers had vanquished Daesh there.
Ankara has since quite a while ago scrutinized the U.S. for working with the psychological oppressor PYD/YPG to battle Daesh in Syria, saying that utilizing one dread gathering to battle another has neither rhyme nor reason.
In its 30-year fear monger crusade, the PKK has taken somewhere in the range of 40,000 lives, including ladies and kids.
Pompeo said Washington “recognizes that there is a risk to Turkey from psychological oppressors and we will be extremely steady.
“Wherever we discover fanatics and psychological oppressors, we’re set up to help whatever nation is prepared to follow them,” he said. “That incorporates Turkey and others.”
