Bolton reassures Israel about Trump's Syria plan

John Bolton is set to meet Israel's prime minister and Turkey's president during his trip

The planned withdrawal of USA troops from Syria will depend on a number of conditions including an agreement that Turkish forces won't attack Syrian Kurdish forces, national security adviser John Bolton said Sunday.

"There are objectives that we want to accomplish that condition the withdrawal", said Bolton, according to NBC. "The timing of the withdrawal occurs as a result of the fulfillment of the conditions and the establishment of the circumstances that we want to see".

Among the policy decisions still to be made was what to do about the tens of thousands of Syrian Kurdish fighters that USA forces had trained, armed and advised to carry out the ground war against the Islamic State.

Currently, about 2,000 USA forces are in Syria, which is in the grips of a complex war. "He did not mention Iran". Not only is Iran a powerful backer of the Assad regime, but experts say the Islamic Republic stands to benefit from any power vacuum in Syria. "That a terror organization can not be allied with the self-evident", he said. "That was it. Then he left". "We are counting on the global community to stand with us".

At stake is the future power order of the Middle East, and whether the USA and its allies continue to play a role in shaping it. "We will simply do it at a time when the American forces have departed Syria".

He told reporters there was no timetable for a U.S. withdrawal from Syria but that there was not an unlimited commitment.

But he said Mr Trump's position was Turkey may not kill the Kurds and that the United States withdrawal would not take place without an agreement on that.

American National Security Adviser John Bolton has toured the ancient tunnels beneath the Western Wall in Jerusalem's Old City. An NSC official, in turn, responded to questions by pointing to Trump's tweet. "I've discussed this with the president".

"We now have the best US-Israeli relationship in our history", Bolton said during the joint press conference with Netanyahu.

In the meantime, according to a report by the Soufan Center, Washington has dispatched Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton to the Middle East to walk back the announcement of a rapid withdrawal of USA forces in the region.

"The danger, I think, is that in the absence of a hard plan, you get competing fiefdoms", Stein added.

The US president's comments come after his National Security Adviser John Bolton's appeared to contradict Trump's exit plan, tying it to several conditions.


However, as Columbus points out, Trump on December 20th tweeted out that he wanted to let other countries in the region battle with ISIS rather than continue USA involvement.

Of course, it will be a challenge but this is what we want. "We need to keep going and everything will be fine for us". In games like that you need players to stand up and be counted and Fernandinho did that for City .

When he announced the withdrawal last month, a move that led to the resignation of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, among others, Trump said: "Our boys, our young women, our men, they're all coming back and they're coming back now".

PKK is recognised as a terror organisation by US, Turkey and the EU.

"Bolton did not go rogue", Miller added. Their governments have said they are not willing to take them back.

Until now the United States presence in north-eastern Syria, especially near Al-Bukamal and the border with Iraq, has effectively prevented the creation of this land-bridge between centres of Iranian influence.

Bolton said on Sunday that "the timetable flows from the policy decisions that we need to implement".

"We won't be finally pulled out until ISIS is gone", Trump said on Sunday. We won, " Trump said. "Russia hates ISIS more than we do".

Ahead of talks with Israeli officials, he told reporters the pullout would be done in a way that guaranteed the Islamic State jihadist group "is defeated and is not able to revive itself and become a threat again". "Turkey hates ISIS, maybe not as much as we do".
