Erdoğan ignores USA as he prepares assault on Kurds

Pompeo met Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi as well as Iraq's foreign minister, parliament speaker and President Barham Salih, who said his country still needs USA support in the fight against Islamic State militants.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and US National Security Adviser John Bolton traveled to the Middle East this week to reassure America's Arab allies that the Trump administration is not walking away from the region and is continuing to step up pressure on Iran.

Almost 10 years ago, then-President Barack Obama delivered a landmark address at Cairo University in which he said he had come to Egypt seeking "a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world".

The vacancies, current and former officials say, hamper USA engagement in the region as Trump and his top deputies grapple with some of the toughest foreign-policy challenges Washington faces: extricating US troops from the war in Syria, countering Iran, dealing with a devastating civil war in Yemen, continuing counterterrorism operations, and patching up a long-simmering rift between Persian Gulf states. When he made his surprise announcement of the withdrawal three weeks ago, Trump said he wanted to complete it quickly.

"We learned that when America retreats, chaos often follows". 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. Any rollback of Trump's message of a precipitous withdrawal from Syria will be well-received if believed by Jordan's astute leader, King Abdullah II, for whom Islamic State, the Syrian civil war and especially the 666,000 Syrian refugees who have poured across his border pose an existential threat to his country.

The Trump administration in November restored US sanctions on Iran that had been lifted under the landmark 2015 nuclear deal with Western powers.

President Trump stunned USA allies and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle in Washington last month when he announced that ISIS was defeated and all 2,000 American troops in Syria were, "coming back now".

He blamed the previous administration for the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) and Iran's increasing assertiveness, which he said was a direct result of sanctions relief, granted to it under the 2015 nuclear deal.

Most American forces were withdrawn from Iraq in 2011, after years of political squabbling following the USA invasion in 2003. And so are the policies that produced so much needless suffering. "We'll make sure we address the concerns that they have".

TRT World's Simon Marks has more. As a result, Republicans have long accused Obama of apologizing to the world for US actions overseas, a point that Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney emphasized during his 2012 attempt to unseat Obama. Pompeo met with Kurdish leaders in the capital of Iraq's semi-autonomous Kurdish region this week and pledged that the US would not abandon its Kurdish allies in Syria. "It undermined the concept of the nation-state, the building block of global stability", he said. "You could read this as obscuring a continued US retrenchment from Middle Eastern commitments", Alterman added.

The president originally said USA forces would be gone in 30 days.

"Remember, it was here, here in this city, that another American stood before you". He told you that radical Islamist terrorism does not stem from an ideology.

According to Salih's office, Pompeo said America is keen to "establish a distinguished relationship with Iraq", a country that is a strategic partner in the region.
