Trump's announced pullout from Syria without guaranteeing safety for the Kurds, who have helped USA forces fight the Islamic State group, had received sharp criticism from politicians. Erdogan has vowed to crush it in the wake of Trump's decision to pull U.S. troops out of the region.
Speaking in Abu Dhabi, Mr Pompeo said the United States recognised "the Turkish people's right and Mr Erdogan's right to defend their country from terrorists".
"We recognize the Turkish people's right to defend their country from terrorists, but we also know that those. who are not terrorists and fighting alongside us for all this time deserve to be protected", Pompeo told reporters.
"We have achieved the goal that we set out to achieve", he said.
On Friday, the US-led coalition said it had started the pullout, but officials later said only equipment, not troops, were going.
