Decision made on Syria pullout, announcement soon: US intel chief

WASHINGTON: The United States has reached a decision on a possible withdrawal of troops from Syria, the top US intelligence official said Wednesday, adding an announcement was imminent.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said leading administration figures took part in “a significant discussion” on the US commitment in Syria at the White House on Tuesday.

“There will be a statement shortly relative to the decision that was made,” Coats said.

President Donald Trump said Tuesday he wants American troops to “get out” of Syria, even as top US officials stressed the need to stay for the long term.
