Votel said that a "key task" for the usa during the withdrawal will be "the protection of those who have fought valiantly with us and ensuring that they remain safe as our diplomats and United Nations and others pursue a political solution here in Syria".

Sunday, Trump told CBS News he would support withdrawing troops from Afghanistan, but not Iraq, which could now be a source of tension.

The Shiite militia in Iraq alleged its fighters Friday prevented the American troops within the anti-IS coalition from conducting a field operation inside the city of Mosul. "So we never had Syria", Trump said in the interview.

"This is what a lot of people don't understand", added Trump."We're going to keep watching, and we're going to keep seeing, and if there's trouble-if somebody is looking to do nuclear weapons or other things-we're going to know it before they do".

Trump has said he has no plans to withdraw the 5,200 troops in Iraq, which he says could carry out US airstrikes inside Syria after American troops withdraw from that country.

In a recent interview with CBS News' "Face the Nation", Trump said the USA has an "incredible base" in Iraq that he intends to keep, "because I want to be able to watch Iran". "We might as well keep it", he said, referring to the Ain al-Asad airbase in western Iraq that he visited in December previous year.

Many of those senators have approached Trump's foreign policy with caution, expressing criticism dealing with stylistic rather than substantive matters. "The US is a major power. but do not pursue your own policy priorities".

'We do have to keep pressure on this network.

Votel told the Senate hearing he was not consulted ahead of Trump's surprise decision to withdraw about 2,000 troops from Syria, which helped trigger the resignation of his defense secretary, Jim Mattis.

Iraqis in the capital Baghdad said United States army forces have been walking around the city accompanied by the Iraqi army, Al-Khaleej Online reported.

Those negotiations, he adds, have been based on the premise that Al Asad would be used to continue the fight against IS. His "little serpent" reference was to Saddam Hussein, who was overthrown that year after the U.S.

Trump also said USA forces in Iraq could form a check on neighboring Iran.

Trump said he would leave intelligence in Afghanistan "and if I see nests forming, I'll do something about it". "We can come back very quickly".

Trump did not meet any Iraqi officials during his three-hour stay there.

Citing a statement by al-Kaabi, Rudaw said the deputy speaker pledged to pass a law "terminating the security agreement with America, in addition to ending the presence of American military trainers and advisors and foreigners on Iraqi soil".

Full quote: "We spent a fortune on building this incredible base", Trump told Face the Nation. A scheduled meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi was scrapped and the two leaders spoke over the phone instead.

On Monday, the Pentagon's Inspector General for the USA military mission in Syria, which is dubbed Operation Inherent Resolve, released a quarterly report covering the time period from October 1 to December 31.
