Baghdad And Washington Create A Group To Determine The Timing Of The Withdrawal Of US Forces From Iraq

Iraq and the United States have agreed to form a special group that will determine the timetable for the withdrawal of foreign forces from the territory of the Arab Republic, according to the Iranian news portal Baghdad Al Yaum.

According to him, representatives of Baghdad and Washington agreed on the issue of "creating a special group to discuss the mechanisms and timing of the relocation of the forces of the international coalition [led by the United States] outside Iraq."

Some time ago, US President Donald Trump said that American forces "basically withdrew from Iraq." He also noted that the US troops would leave the Iraqi territory within three years.

In June, a joint statement by the US and Iraqi authorities following the talks in the framework of the strategic dialogue that began between them said that Washington will continue to reduce its military presence in the Arab country in the coming months and will discuss with Baghdad the status of the remaining us troops there.
