John Bolton, the national security adviser for President Trump, said Sunday that U.S. forces will remain in Syria until key benchmarks are met, which could mean troops could stay in the country for years, a report said.
The New York Times reported that that adviser said that ISIS must be completely defeated and Turkey must promise that it would not target Kurdish troops in the country.
The paper reported that Bolton and other officials in the White House have been working “behind-the-scenes” to slow the president’s order last month to pull all 2,000 troops after declaring victory over ISIS.
