ABU DHABI (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Saturday he was optimistic that a “good outcome” can be achieved that protects both Turkey and the Syrian Kurds, after speaking to the Turkish foreign minister.

Speaking in Abu Dhabi, Pompeo also said the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria is a “tactical change” and does not alter U.S. military capacity to counter Islamic State and Iran.
