US and Iraq discuss the issue of preserving the US contingent in the country

35
US and Iraqi authorities are negotiating the preservation of the current American contingent in the country after the victory over terrorist groups, reports RIA News message of the USA Today newspaper.




Both countries want to avoid repeating the 2011 of the year, when American troops left Iraq after successfully weakening Al-Qaida (banned in the Russian Federation) and reducing the level of violence in the country. Three years later, the Iraqi military failed, faced with the invasion of the "Islamic State" (IG, grouping is prohibited in the Russian Federation),
writes a newspaper.

According to government sources, the United States and Iraq "have not yet determined the size and composition of forces, which may change over time."

According to the interlocutors, “the decision on the long-term presence has not yet been agreed, and the composition of the forces will be determined by the Iraqi government.”

It is noted that the mission of the American forces, if they remain in Iraq, will most likely be the same as at present.

Recall 9 December, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced the victorious conclusion of the war in the country against the IG group.

        Oh, for whom the Americans are worried, but not for the Iraqis! They are simply confronted with a fact.

        Here, a figure from the United States, someone Tom Rogan, raises a keezh: "the Russians have grown sick and will bomb our troops in Syria." And this is in all seriousness.

    It’s not even worth talking about Iraq, because it is clear that the United States will remain there (it was not for this that they invaded, then to completely leave). But from Syria they need to be squeezed out by any means and not allowed to gain a foothold there.

      This is not a pimple, so just do not squeeze! And by persuasion and conspiracy, in the form of concern, even more so.

    Maybe one of the goals of creating ISIS was to have Iraq itself ask the Americans to maintain a military presence?
