US President Donald Trump confirmed his intention to pull the country's troops from Syria, explaining that the US military presence on Syria's soil benefited other countries more than Washington itself.
The president specified that he would consult with the US-led coalition allies on the military withdrawal, aimed, as he claimed, to rebuild the US.
The statement follows previous Trump's announcement made on April 29, pledging to allow United States' withdrawal from Syria "very soon" and "let the other people take care of it" instead. The surprising Trump's decision contradicted previous comments coming from his administration, including senior Pentagon and State Department officials, saying that American troops would maintain an open-ended presence in Syria.
