Transcript for Ceasefire in Syria set to expire as US troops leave
Thank you. To the latest on the crisis in Syria with the cease-fire brokered by the U.S. Set to expire today and American troops leaving the northern part of the country, our foreign correspondent James Longman reporting again from the region this morning. Good morning, James. Reporter: Good morning, robin. The five-day pause officially comes to an end today. Both sides accuse the other of breaking the agreement but the world will be watching to see if president erdogan relaunches his incursion into northern Syria pleating with Vladimir Putin today to discuss next step, a clear sign of Russia's increasing influence as the U.S. Backs off and as American forces leave their positions we've seen their vehicles pelted with potatoes by desperate kurds worried for their safety. These troops were once hailed as heroes by the kurds. Remember, it's a different picture now. This sign reads thanks, U.S. People but trump betrayed us. President trump says he never promised to protect the kurds and says his priority is to get U.S. Troops home but we know instead some will stay in Syria to protect oil interests while others head to Iraq to monitor ISIS. Another sign of U.S. Policy being tested this morning Iraq saying those troops don't have permission to stay in the country. George. Could be chaotic there, thanks very much.
