Washington does not intend to stay in Syria forever, but the timing of the withdrawal of American troops from the republic has not yet been determined. This was stated by the commander of the Central Command of the United States (CENTCOM), General Kenneth Mackenzie.

He stressed that at some point the United States will be forced to leave Syria.

"It will be a political decision, and we are ready to fulfill this order when it arrives," Mackenzie said at a video conference at the Institute for the Middle East in Washington
