[size=45]The Wall Street Journal reported that senior officials in Iraq and the United States are planning to issue a statement calling for American combat units to leave Iraq by the end of this year.
The newspaper reported that US and Iraqi officials confirmed that the US military presence would be required after the withdrawal, in order to provide assistance to the Iraqi forces in the war against the terrorist organization "ISIS".
"We don't need any fighters because we have our forces," Iraqi Foreign Minister Fouad Hussein said in a statement to the "Wall Street Journal." He continued, “What do we need? We need intelligence cooperation. We need help with training. We need units that help us in the air.”[/size]
[size=45]During the strategic dialogue round that took place on the seventh of last April, Iraq and the United States of America reached an agreement to transfer the role of the American forces to training missions, and to remove the combat forces from the country, while the armed factions loyal to Iran demanded, after the announcement of this by the Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, by providing guarantees for the implementation of the terms of the agreement.[/size]
[size=45]The political forces representing the armed factions question the sincerity of the Iraqi government's intentions regarding the expulsion of the American forces, while the "Sunni and Kurdish" political forces in Iraq reject any steps for the American withdrawal, and consider it a step towards more Iranian hegemony over the country.[/size]
