US President Donald Trump was expected to meet with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis at the White House later in the week ahead of the decision, State Department spokesman David Goldstein told a briefing.
“We would expect a decision on Friday,” Goldstein said. “And there have been ongoing discussions regarding this.”
