US Vice President Mike Pence stated that ‘the Caliphate has crumbled and ISIS has been defeated’ during his remarks to the Global Chiefs of Mission conference at the US State Department in Washington DC on Wednesday.
US Vice President also mentioned that his country will “stay in the region” as well as “in the fight to ensure that ISIS does not rear its ugly head again.”
Pence stated that US President Donald Trump “has often spoken about his desire to bring an end to endless wars in America” and bring US troops home “in an orderly and effective way out of their current deployment in Syria.”
Pence’s remark came hours after at least four US soldiers were reportedly killed in a suicide blast in Manbij, according to an unidentified US official.
