U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo says ISIS strong in some areas CBS

A recent Pentagon report said that the Islamic State is reforming and launching attacks after losing their hold on physical territory in Iraq and Syria. Since then, however, there has been concern about the militant group gaining new strength in Iraq and Syria.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Tuesday the United States was not sending "mixed messages" on Huawei Technologies and he does not believe a U.S. blacklist of the Chinese telecommunications giant will block a trade deal with Beijing.

US President Donald Trump said Wednesday that other countries must assume the battle against Islamic extremists as the US negotiates a withdrawal from Afghanistan.

On Saturday the IS took credit for a suicide bombing of a wedding in Kabul that killed 63.

Islamic State's resurgence threatens to undercut one of Mr. Trump's favorite talking points, and complicate his hopes of pulling US forces entirely out of Syria. He said the US will not hold them at its base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, "for the next 50 years and pay for it".

In a statement in Arabic, it claimed the attack was carried out by its suicide-bomber named Abu Asim Al-Pakistani. The Islamic State's affiliate in Afghanistan reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack on Sunday.

Pompeo said the plan to defeat Islamic State in the region was executed with 80 other countries and was very successful.

"There's risk from al Qaeda [and] other radical Islamic terrorist groups".

On a different note, Mr. Secretary was also reported to have said that the usa will take every action consistent with its sanctions to prevent Iranian tanker from delivering Oil to Syria.

Pompeo's predecessor has said Trump repeatedly asked for things that were illegal.

The Trump administration has reduced the U.S. military presence in Syria and Iraq and is negotiating a USA withdrawal from Afghanistan with the Taliban insurgents. "So we're going to tell them and we have already told them take these prisoners that we've captured because the United States is not going to put them in Guantanamo for the next 50 years and pay for it", Mr. Trump said. "I've seen them make real progress".
