Nevertheless, the Trump administration should stand its ground.
Tillerson said the experience of the USA withdrawal from Iraq in 2011, which was followed by the rise of the Islamic State and the us military's return to the region, necessitated an open-ended USA presence in Syria to prevent a revival of the Islamic State.
"It is also essential so that ISIS can not re-emerge in liberated and ungoverned areas", he said, using another acronym for Daesh.
Vehicles take the Champs Elysees avenue with the Concorde Plaza Ferris wheel in background, in Paris on April 21, 2017, a day after a gunman opened fire on police on the avenue, killing a policeman and wounding two others in an attack claimed by the Islamic State group just days before the first round of the presidential election.
Tillerson said the US recognizes Turkey's "humanitarian contributions and military sacrifices" in Syria defeating Daesh, adding that Washington needs Ankara's "close cooperation" in achieving a new future for Syria that ensures security for Syria's neighbors. "Furthermore, they do not pose any threat to any other country in the region", the Public Affairs Office told Al Jazeera. "Iran has dramatically strengthened its presence in Syria by deploying Iranian Revolutionary Guard troops; supporting Lebanese Hezbollah; and importing proxy forces from Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and elsewhere".
However, he shares Giraldi's view that the USA leadership wouldn't support the creation of an independent Kurdish entity in Syria.
From 2003 to 2008, the US government consistently said that USA troops would not leave Iraq until conditions on the ground allowed doing so.
Key questions that Tillerson left unaddressed, he continued, included how long Assad should remain in power and whether he would play a role in any political transition.
Erdogan on Tuesday reiterated that Turkey planned an imminent intervention in the Kurdish-controlled enclave of Afrin in northern Syria.
Erdogan views Syria's YPG Kurdish militia as a terrorist organization aligned with armed Kurdish separatists who have been fighting the government in Turkey for decades.
Citing several other USA officials, media reports published earlier this week said that the US-led coalition fighting the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) armed group would recruit around half of the new force from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an umbrella group of fighters dominated by the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG). "Turkey's security concerns are legitimate", it said.
Cavusoglu's warning comes after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoganpledged to "choke" the 30,000-strong Syrian Border Security Force (BSF).
"Hey NATO! You are obliged to take a stance against those who harass and violate the borders of your members", Erdogan said. Several French jihadis had at one point risen to prominent positions in the organization, such as top propagandist Rachid Kassim, now believed to be dead after a USA airstrike.
"We can not and will not allow support and arming of the YPG terrorist group under the name of an operational partner".
He said that Turkey may expand its operations after Afrin has been cleared.
"Some people misspoke. We are not creating a border security force at all", Tillerson told reporters on board an aircraft taking him back to Washington from Vancouver, where he had attended a meeting on North Korea.
Meanwhile, U.S. military officials have distanced themselves from Kurdish groups in Afrin, in an indication that Washington may not intervene to block or deter a potential Turkish attack, Turkey's state-run Anadolu news agencyreported.
