Trump asking Arab nations to replace US military in Syria after defeat of ISIS: report

Source: The Hill

The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that U.S. officials have reached out to Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates about contributing billions of dollars and military resources to help secure Syria after ISIS is defeated.

National Security Adviser John Bolton has also reportedly reached out to Egyptian officials about the initiative.

Military officials told the Journal that it would be difficult to convince Arab nations to send troops if the U.S. withdrew its forces entirely.

The Taliban would also love to keep order in the country.
