Macron ‘regrets’ Trump’s decision

French President Emmanuel Macron on Sunday criticised U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw American forces from Syria, saying that “an ally must be reliable”.Speaking in the Chad capital N’Djamena, Mr. Macron said “I deeply regret the decision” by Trump to pullout U.S. troops.
r. Trump last week ordered a complete troop pullout from Syria, asserting that the Islamic State (IS) group had been defeated, and a significant withdrawal from Afghanistan. “To be an ally is to fight shoulder to shoulder,” Mr. Macron said, adding that France was doing just that in Chad in the fight against jihadist groups.“An ally must be reliable, to coordinate with its other allies,” he said.Mr. Macron also paid tribute to Defense Secretary James Mattis, who said he was resigning on Thursday after Mr. Trump’s Syria announcement.
