Turkey says will launch Syria offensive if U.S. delays pullout

Pompeo Visits Middle East to Increase Pressure on Iran

Jordan's Safadi did not hesitate to express frustration with Iran, but did not go almost as far as Pompeo in his criticism.

"After being so intertwined and engaged with a terrorist organization, it is not that easy to leave that terrorist organization", he added, referring to the YPG.

The U.S. "will use diplomacy and work with our partners to expel every last Iranian boot" from Syria and will bolster efforts "to bring peace and stability to the long-suffering Syrian people", he said.

"If they are terrorists, we will do what is necessary no matter where they come from", he fired back at the American official.

He, however, said that a summit between all the three parties was being prepared in Moscow. "We're going to withdraw our 2,000 soldiers from Syria-but the mission, the goal for which we have been involved for the 24 months in the administration, remains in full".

"They (Americans) did not provide any security for any one". Pompeo laid the blame notably on a vision outlined by President Barack Obama in a speech he gave in Cairo in 2009 in which he spoke of "a new beginning" for U.S. relations with countries in the Arab and Muslim world.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo urged Middle East allies on Tuesday to confront "significant threats" posed by Iran and jihadists as he visited a region shaken by Washington's surprise decision to withdraw from Syria.

The US originally announced the decision to withdraw forces within 30 days. However, US officials later indicated the withdrawal could be done over the course of several months. Bolton has been seeking assurances that Turkey wouldn't attack Washington's Syrian Kurdish allies after American forces depart.He said that Turkey would never compromise on the issue of the YPG Kurdish militia, which the USA has backed in the fight against the Islamic State in Syria.

Pompeo explained the mechanism of the American exit from Syria and said the Kurdistan Region's position is important to the United States, according to the statement. Turkey's President Erdogan snubbed Bolton when he visited Ankara to make his case on Tuesday.

In the speech entitled "A Force for Good: America's Reinvigorated Role in the Middle East", Pompeo emphasized America's positive impact on the region. Recep Tayyip Ergodan considers the YPG to be a part of the PKK, a Kurdish separatist group that both Turkey and the United States consider to be a terrorist organization.

The YPG forms the backbone of the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an anti-Damascus alliance of predominantly Kurdish militants. It welcomed the recent acquittal of employees of American civil society groups who had been "wrongly convicted of improperly operating in Egypt" and said the United States supports Sissi's pledges "to amend Egyptian law to prevent future miscarriages of justice".

While IS fighters have been ousted from the major towns and cities they once held, fighting between US-backed forces and IS militants has continued in the Middle Euphrates River Valley with the USA continuing to launch regular air strikes in support of allied forces.

"I've told each of the leaders here in the region that I've met that we're committed to that", he said. It has also been largely incapable of achieving its declared goal of destroying Daesh.

"America's penchant for wishful thinking led us to look the other way as Hezbollah, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Iranian regime, accumulated a massive arsenal of approximately 130,000 rockets and missiles", he says during a speech in Cairo. Tough talk about the Kurds can only help him. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to disclose the information publicly.
