Iraqi President Barham Saleh said on Monday that coalition forces against the US-led Da’ash “came at the invitation of the Iraqi government.”
He pointed out that the presence of troops is “to train Iraqi forces in its war against terrorism,” according to the presidency.
Saleh said in an interview with local media that “there is a national consensus that there is no foreign combat bases or forces,” but said “national consensus exists, but in the end depends on the Iraqi vision of security, and the position of the Iraqi government and the Commander-in-Chief of our continued need for these advisers and trainers So that this is the basis for the decision is nothing else. “
The Iraqi president stressed the role of coalition forces “important” in supporting Iraqi forces “in the fight against terrorism and victory.”
