US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in a speech delivered to the Jewish Institute for National Security of America (JINSA).
Syria’s Kurds “have been great partners,” US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Wednesday evening in Washington DC, as he addressed a conference of the Jewish Institute for National Security of America (JINSA.)
Pompeo affirmed that the Kurds would be party to negotiations over Syria’s political future.
“We are now driving,” he said, stressing that last word, “to make sure that they have a seat at the table.”
Pompeo is the most senior US official to affirm a long-term commitment to Syria’s Kurds.
