WASHINGTON: Republican US Senator Lindsey Graham said President Donald Trump reassured him about his plan to withdraw US troops from Syria and his commitment to defeating Islamic State during a White House meeting on Sunday.

"We talked about Syria. He told me some things I didn't know that made me feel a lot better about where we're headed in Syria," Graham told reporters outside the White House after the meeting. "We still have some differences but I will tell you that the president is thinking long and hard about Syria - how to withdraw our forces but at the same time achieve our national security interests."
