Secretary of State John Kerry dismissed on Friday as "a myth" suggestions that the United States was withdrawing from world affairs. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth," Kerry told the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Kerry cited U.S. involvement with issues from Israel to Iran to Syria and in Asia and Africa to counter a similar view expressed by others in the Middle East and by critics in the United States. He said it was based on a false assumption that the only tool of U.S. influence was its military.
