It is a walkback of Trump’s ‘ off the cuff ‘ order to pull out from Syria….
National security adviser John Bolton said Sunday that U.S. forces would not leave Syria until the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is fully defeated and the Trump administration receives assurances that U.S.-backed Kurdish fighters will be protected.
The Associated Press reported that Bolton laid out the conditions during a trip to Israel for a full U.S. withdrawal.
“There are objectives that we want to accomplish that condition the withdrawal,” Bolton said. “The timetable flows from the policy decisions that we need to implement.”
Bolton said Sunday there is no concrete timetable, explaining that U.S. forces “won’t be finally pulled out until ISIS is gone.” He added that he intends to meet with Turkish officials to discuss their objectives in the region and to warn against any attacks on the Kurds, the AP reported.
U.S. support for the Kurds in Syria has been a point of tension in U.S.-Turkey relations, as the NATO ally views the Kurdish forces in Syria as a terrorist group.
