Top diplomats in Russian Federation say that they don't believe the Trump administration will pull its troops out of Syria as President Donald Trump said they would, a top official said Wednesday, arguing that advocates of maintaining US troops in Syria have a lot of power in Washington.

Russia, which has deployed forces into Syria in support of the Damascus government, said on Friday it had the impression that the United States wanted to stay despite the announced withdrawal of USA troops, RIA news agency reported.

"Out of concern for operational security, we will not discuss specific timelines, locations or troops movements".

"On Thursday, some American forces withdrew from the Rmeilan military base in Hasakeh province", Rami Abdel Rahman, the head of the Britain-based monitoring organisation, said.

There are 2,000 American troops in Syria. However, I can't imagine the US physically, fully and undisputedly withdrawing from Syria military all of a sudden in the current situation of Washington's unrestrained chase for global domination and the strive to be present everywhere and solve issues only on its terms.

The Journal reported that to account for shifts in plans, the military is staging personnel and equipment needed for a possible withdrawal, rather than move American forces out. "For security reasons, I am not going to provide further details at this time".

The two enjoy a great relationship on and off the pitch and Real Madrid had made contact over a move, though Ramsey has elected to join Juve instead.

In his speech at the American University in Cairo on Thursday, the secretary of state said the USA would continue working with coalition partners to defeat ISIS and would continue air strikes against terrorist targets in the region.

US Central Command has come up with an execution plan in order to safely withdraw troops there, officials tell CNN. "President Macron spoke to him (Trump) several times and it seems that there has been a change that I think is positive", he said in a television interview on Thursday. "We remain committed to the complete dismantling of ISIS - the ISIS threat - and the ongoing fight against radical Islamism in all of its forms", he said.

USA troops have been involved in Syria's war since 2014 when the first elite force arrived in the country to advise Kurdish-led fighters who were involved in battles against the Islamic State group.

US National Security Adviser John Bolton suggested on Tuesday that protecting the Kurds would be a pre-condition of the US withdrawal, drawing a rebuke from Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, who called his comments "a serious mistake".

Turkey considers the People's Protection Units (YPG) militia to be affiliated with the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) that has waged a decades-long insurgency against Ankara. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall. Syria's deputy foreign minister said on Wednesday he was optimistic about renewed dialogue with the Kurds.
