USA will expel every last Iranian boot from Syria, says Mike Pompeo

USA will expel every last Iranian boot from Syria, says Mike Pompeo

Yet even as there are hopeful signs of progress for Iraqi Christians, the conflict in Syria grinds on, with major global powers - Turkey, Iran and Russian Federation - jockeying for position.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused the US national security adviser of making "a very serious mistake" Tuesday by demanding that Ankara guarantee the safety of Kurdish fighters in northeastern Syria before the USA withdraws its troops from the war-torn country.

A Turkish official has said that his country will launch an attack against Kurdish forces in Syria whether or not USA forces pull out first.

It was Erdoğan who gave the first impressions over the talks between Bolton and Kalın in his weekly address to his Justice and Development Party (AKP) parliamentary group.

The vacancies are especially problematic as the Trump administration continues to send contradictory messages about its policies toward friends and foes in the region. But it was most notable for the determined attacks on the previous USA administration.

President Donald Trump´s "decision to withdraw our troops has been made". But, he added, any operation into Syria would also target YPG positions.

The trip comes amid confusion over conflicting statements by President Donald Trump and senior US officials about a planned USA troop withdrawal from Syria.

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

"Neither Bolton nor Pompeo's comments seemed particularly sensitive to Turkey's sensitivities", Ash said, "and I think Erdogan was responding to this".

Georgia also has a commitment from 4-star quarterback John Rhys Plumlee, but he is yet to sign a letter of intent. Eason did sit out the 2018 season, where as Fields intends to apply for a waiver to make him immediately eligible.

Jurgen Klopp has no doubts about Keita value to Liverpool
Guardiola said: "Losing to Liverpool we would have been nearly out and we played knowing we were in or we were out". Yes, we have to (make changes). "It is so good and I am looking forward to our common future", he said.

Washington-based Human Rights First slammed Pompeo's speech, saying it "doubled-down on blanket United States support for the authoritarian regimes that have driven decades of instability in the Middle East". To do so, Turkey would vet the Syrian Kurds who fought with the USA against ISIS and include those "with no links to terrorist organizations in the new stabilization force", Erdogan wrote."Only a diverse body can serve all Syrian citizens and bring law and order to various parts of the country", he wrote.

While in Israel, Bolton said that the United States would not jump-start its withdrawal from Syria before securing the safety of the Kurdish fighters. "We always do and now is the time, but this isn't a change of mission" in eradicating ISIS and other Islamic terrorism.

Iraqi political analyst Hazem al-Shammari told Al-Arabiya TV that Iraqi leaders are caught between USA and Iranian wishes, given that Iran has called on the U.S.to withdraw its troops completely from Iraq.

His tour is aimed at urging regional allies to continue to confront the "significant threats" posed by Iran and Islamic jihadists despite Trump´s shock decision last month to pull all 2,000 American troops from Syria.

"Despite the fact that we reached a clear agreement with Mr. Trump, different voices have been raised from different echelons of the USA administration", Erdogan said during a speech on Tuesday, adding that he could soon hold another phone call with the American president.

On Dec. 21, Turkey agreed to temporarily hold off its assault on the Kurds until USA troops had left the country.

But Senate Democrats have said many nominees Trump puts forward are wholly unqualified to be ambassadors, or have backgrounds that should preclude them from confirmation-such as Christine Toretti, the ambassador nominee for Malta, who had a restraining order filed against her for "placing a bullet-riddled target sheet" in the office of her ex-husband's doctor.

"The United States under President Trump will remain a steadfast partner in the region for Egypt and others".

"The US-#Egypt relationship is one of our deepest and broadest partnerships in the region", Pompeo said in an earlier Tweet.
