WASHINGTON – The Trumpet administration plays down talk of an immediate withdrawal of American troops from Syria, pledging the “US will remain in Syria” to the “lasting defeat” of the Islamic State of the group.

That is, according to the AMERICAN special envoy for Syria, James Jeffrey. He also said that the US is demanding a complete withdrawal of the Iranian forces of the Syrian territory.

President Donald Trump has already expressed the desire to enter the U.S. from Syria. There are some 2,000 AMERICAN troops.

Jeffrey spoke with reporters Thursday about the AMERICAN policy in the direction of the war-torn country.

Russian troops prepare for an attack on the syrian province of Idlib, a move that the U.S. repeatedly warned would likely result in a bloodbath the size of which has not been seen in Syria is seven years of war.
