Trump's envoy: pro-Iranian militias responsible for bombing the U.S. embassy in Baghdad
Today, US special envoy to Syria and the International Alliance, James Jeffrey, stressed that the Iraqi government must define the mechanisms of the next stage regarding the American military presence, pointing to the presence of a meeting in Copenhagen next week to talk about the issue of troop retention.
Jeffrey said in a press conference, "We do not interfere in the file of choosing the prime minister. This is the Iraqi affair, but there is a popular movement demanding a government that is not subject to Iran, and this is a good thing for us."
Jeffrey added that “the Iraqi parliament’s decision is not binding on us, because we have agreed with the Iraqi government on our forces, and it requires staying until the elimination of an organization.” He explained, “We are not interested in talking about withdrawing from Iraq, but in the end it is an Iraqi decision and that any discussion with the Iraqis We believe that it should cover aspects of the relationship, as it is not just military forces, but rather a long-term relationship related to the armament of the Iraqi army and others.
The US President's envoy added: “We have been subjected to 11 AH attacks in Iraq since storming the vicinity of the American embassy, in which militias affiliated with Iran were involved.
