Congress rejects US withdraw from Syrian Kurdish-controlled areas

The drafter of a proposal to the US congress over the withdraw American troops from the Kurdish-controlled areas of Syria announced his proposal has been rejected in a Friday's vote.

Three days ago, Democratic Congressman Jamaal Anthony Bowman, in a proposal to Congress, called for the withdrawal of US troops from Kurdish-controlled areas of Syria within a year after the approval for cutting the budget of the troops in Syria.

He suggested that the US military presence in Syria would not be possible without the consent of the Congress and that the US military presence in Syria would be limited or ended.

On his Twitter page, Mr. Bowman announced the failure of his proposal by a dissent vote from Congress, calling it an unfortunate move.

Passing the US military budget amendment in order to limit the presence of US forces in Syria or completely pulling them out from the country required a majority vote in Congress, but in the Friday vote 286 members of Congress opposed the budget cuts in order to push for an exit. 141 delegates agreed with Bowman's proposal.
