BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 P.M.) – The U.S. will not be providing any reconstruction funds to Syria until all Iranian troops are withdrawn from the country, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during a press conference in Cairo on Thursday.
According to Pompeo, the US will work with allies to “expel every last Iranian boot” from Syria.
Pompeo continued that due to former President Barakat Obama’s Middle East policies, Iran was able to strengthen their presence inside the region.
The U.S. Secretary of State would then add that the U.S. will not retreat from its terror fight until all Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) and Al-Qaeda terrorists were eradicated.
“America will not retreat until the terror fight is over. We will labor tirelessly alongside you to defeat ISIS, al-Qaeda and other jihadists that threaten our security and yours,” he added.
