Baghdad today _ special

A member of the parliamentary legal committee, Salim Hamza, said on Monday (March 25, 2019) that the project to remove foreign forces from Iraq needs a request from Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi, confirming the need of the country or not for those forces.

“The preparation of the project should not be limited to specific forces only, but must include all the military forces on Iraqi soil,” Hamza said in an exclusive interview with Baghdad today.

He added that “the parliament will vote for the removal of these forces in the event of a request from the Prime Minister Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces Adel Abdul Mahdi, stresses the need of the country or not for those forces.”

He pointed out that “the Council of Ministers also can issue a resolution without reference to the Council of Representatives to remove these forces in case they need only.”

On February 16, 2019, Fadil Jaber, MP of the Sadigoun bloc, confirmed that the bill to remove US forces to be legislated in the second legislative term of the House of Representatives includes the Turkish forces on Iraqi soil.

Jaber said in an interview with Baghdad today that “the political forces agreed to discuss and study the draft law in the second legislative term of the parliament in order to pass it.”

He added that “the Turkish forces are present on Iraqi territory illegally and are among the forces that will be covered by the law out of Iraq.”

“The Prime Minister, the commander-in-chief of the armed forces, Adel Abdul Mahdi, will also have a position on the presence of these forces in the absence of need, so it will be part of the identification of troops that must leave the country.”

Iraqi lawmakers have vowed to move to pass a law in parliament to remove foreign soldiers, especially Americans, from the country.

The Speaker of the Iraqi House of Representatives Mohammad Halaboussi said Saturday (Feb. 9, 2019) that the parliament received a proposal adopted by parliamentarians in order to determine the tasks and the return of US forces and the timing of their stay in the country.
