US not to pull out troops from Syria until goals accomplished - UN envoy Haley

The US will not pull its troops out of Syria until its goals are accomplished there, ambassador to UN Nikki Haley said. This comes after Washington carried out airstrikes in Syria in response for an alleged chemical attack.
US currently has over 2,000 troops in Syria and a number of contractors.
While it is America's goals to see the troops come home, "we are not going to leave until we know we have accomplished those things," she told Fox News Sunday.
Haley added the United States wants to ensure that chemical weapons are not used in a way that is of risk to US interests, the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) is defeated and Iran’s actions are monitored.
US officials were previously saying that their goal in Syria is just defeating ISIS.
