US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Thursday the United States was a "force for good" in the Middle East and remained committed to the "complete dismantling" of the Daesh threat despite its decision to withdraw troops from Syria.
"When America retreats, chaos follows," he said in a speech at the American University in Cairo in which he also urged Middle Eastern countries to do more to combat Daesh militants.
