Donald Trump Speaks to Ministers of the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS

Donald Trump Speaks to Ministers of the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS

He said his administration was holding constructive talks with a number of groups, including Taliban militants.

He said: "The US presence in Iraq is a part of an agreement between the two countries with a specific task which is to combat terrorism". "We have to protect other things that we have".

The 79-member Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS was formed in 2014 and works to reduce the threat the armed group poses to worldwide security and United States homelands.

"They do bad, bad things", the US president said of Iran.

Trump announced in December that "all" US forces would be leaving Syria "now".

Stuart Rothenberg, a longtime political analyst and senior editor with the nonpartisan newsletter Inside Politics, said it seemed as if foreign policy was an afterthought to Trump's speech, as he "dipped into a whole bunch of issues: China, trade, Venezuela, Russia, INF treaty". Partners Britain, China, France, Russia and Germany have remained committed to the deal, along with Iran, and the United Nations nuclear watchdog agency has certified in multiple reports that Iran remains in compliance with measures meant to ensure it can not develop a nuclear weapon.

"Our courageous troops have now been fighting in the Middle East for nearly 19 years".

Salih's comments came hours after Trump appeared on CBS' "Face the Nation" claiming troops were in Iraq to keep tabs on Iran.

US officials have asked all nations to repatriate fighters who have been captured and are now kept imprisoned in Syria by Kurdish and Arab forces.

While the amendment is a nonbinding provision without the force of law, it sent a clear message to the White House that any plans to immediately pull troops out of war zones could jeopardize the fight against groups like the so-called Islamic State, leave Kurdish allies on the ground defenseless, and embolden us adversaries like Russian Federation and Iran.

The US has been leading a coalition to crush the Islamic State group which grabbed swathes of Syria and Iraq in 2014, and multiple offensives have since ousted the militants from all but a sliver of territory in eastern Syria. "The fight is one we'll continue to wage alongside you".

The US president also discussed internal US politics, calling on both elected representatives and citizens to reject the politics of revenge, resistance, and retribution and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise, and the common good. "Great nations do not fight endless wars".

Iraq's government plays a delicate balancing act between its two main allies, Washington and Tehran. "And last fall, we put in place the toughest sanctions ever imposed on a country". Russian Federation has since also pulled out of the treaty.

"If I had not been elected president of the United States, we would right now, in my opinion, be in a major war with North Korea with potentially millions of people killed". He says Russian Federation violated the pact, which Russian Federation denies. Angus King, I-Maine, to clarify if he had been consulted ahead of the president's announcement in December, Votel responded "I was not consulted".

"The opposing side is also very happy to be negotiating", he added.

"Perhaps we can't - in which case, we will outspend and out-innovate all others by far", he warned. "And Chairman Kim and I will meet again on February 27 and 28 in Vietnam". Russian Federation and China are among the governments insisting Maduro remains president. President Maduro has accused Guaido and his allies of staging a coup.

McConnell stood by Trump during the 35-day partial government shutdown in a dispute over border security, and he is usually reluctant to criticize the president.

The bill received bipartisan support, although it caused a rift among Democrats as 25 voted in favor of the bill and 22 voted against it. ISIS would depict a US pullout from Syria as a win in its global propaganda outlets. "I will get it built", he declared.

"This is a smart, strategic, see-through steel barrier - not just a simple concrete wall", Trump said in his speech. Several senators running for president in 2020 were also in the audience and they too maintained an uneasy silence.

"The recent decision by the president came as a shock and was a complete reversal of policy that was articulated to us", McGurk wrote in an email to colleagues obtained by the New York Times.

Earlier this week, Trump said it was important to keep a U.S. military presence in Iraq so that Washington could keep a close eye on Iran, according to a CBS interview aired on Sunday.
