U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Monday the United States supports Egypt's fight against Islamic State but reiterated that it advocated free and fair elections in the Arab country.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson attends the Kuwait International Conference for Reconstruction of Iraq, in Bayan, Kuwait February 13, 2018.

Speaking at a meeting of his counterparts in Kuwait City, Tillerson representatives from more than 70 nations that the coalition will not stop, "until we have achieved the full and enduring defeat of ISIS (Islamic State)". "To those who say, "If they hit us, we will respond with force", it is clear that they have never experienced the Ottoman slap", Erdogan said.

The Trump administration, concerned that the coalition it cobbled together to destroy the Islamic State group is losing sight of the prime objective, pressed its partners on Tuesday to refocus their efforts.

Tillerson is in Cairo at the start of a Middle East tour that will also take him to Kuwait, Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey.

Officials told AP on Friday that most of Tillerson's discussions will likely be "difficult", saying those with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally Turkey will probably be especially prickly given Turkish military action against US-backed Kurdish rebels in northern Syria and escalating anti-American rhetoric in Ankara.

Washington has acknowledged Ankara's concerns over the presence of well-armed Kurdish fighters positioned just over Turkey's southern border. Corbett told the Washington Post that during their brief marraige, "Sorensen ran a auto over her foot, put out a cigarette on her hand, threw her into a wall and grasped her menacingly by her hair while they were alone on their boat in remote waters off Maine's coast, an incident she said left her fearing for her life".

At the other end, South Africa's stand-in skipper Aiden Markram conceded India were superior than the hosts and deserved the win. One can't ignore Hardik Pandya's contribution as his all-round skill sets came into good effect.


Tillerson, who was speaking during a visit to Jordan to sign a five-year $6.4 billion aid package that extends US support to a key Arab ally, said President Donald Trump would decide when to announce the peace plan.

"ISIS remains a serious threat to the stability of the region, our homelands and other parts of the globe", he said.

Investors will also be exempt from customs duties and income tax for 10-15 years, Hussein said.

On Saturday, Israel launched a series of air strikes in Syria after it detected an Iranian surveillance drone in Israeli airspace, and an Israeli jet was downed in Syria.

"I have seen the plan, elements of the plan, it's been under development for a number of months, I have consulted with them on the plan, identified areas that we feel need further work", Tillerson said.

Iraq was shattered following the 2003 US invasion and the resulting occupation and civil war.

War-battered Iraq sought Tuesday to attract global investors to rebuild the country at a parallel reconstruction conference in Kuwait, offering hundreds of projects and touting extensive legal guarantees.
