Votel also said that "a key task" that the U.S. was looking at was "the protection of those who have fought valiantly with us and ensuring that they remain safe as our diplomats and United Nations and others pursue a political solution here in Syria", referring to the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces. "I have also accelerated our negotiations to reach a political settlement in Afghanistan".

"If they are slaughtered by the Turks within reasonable proximity to our leaving, it will be a stain on our honor of this country that will persist ... in our ability to attract allies to assist us in future projects of this kind", King said.
