The United States will likely announce next week that all of the Daesh terrorist group caliphate has been retaken in Syria and Iraq, US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday.

“It should be formally announced, sometime probably next week, that we’ll have 100 percent of the caliphate,” Trump said during his remarks at a ministerial meeting of US-led coalition member states.

A serviceman of the Fighting Eagles 1st Battalion, 8th Infantry Regiment, walks on a tank that arrived via train to the US base in Mihail Kogalniceanu, eastern Romania, Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2017. Five hundred U.S. troops began to arrive in a Black Sea port in Romania with tanks and hardware to bolster defense in this East European NATO nation.

Earlier, US President said during his second State of the Union address that It is time to return US troops deployed in Syria back home.

In December, Trump declared the Daesh terror group defeated in Syria and announced the US troop pullout from the country but gave no timeline.

Syria has been engulfed in an armed conflict since 2011, with the government forces fighting numerous terrorist organizations and armed opposition groups. Russia, along with Turkey and Iran, is a guarantor of the ceasefire in Syria. Moscow has also been providing humanitarian aid to residents of the crisis-torn country.
