Shafaq News / The Al-Fateh Alliance, led by Hadi Al-Amiri, announced, on Thursday, its position on the round of strategic dialogue between Iraq and the United States of America.

The coalition said in a statement received by Shafaq News, “We urge the Iraqi interlocutor to transform the mission of the international coalition forces from a combat mission to an advisory training mission, and we consider it a positive step in achieving full national sovereignty and the return of stability to all parts of the country.”

He added, “This requires expediting the formation of the specialized technical committee and setting clear and short-term timetables for the withdrawal of all foreign forces from Iraq as soon as possible.”

Al-Amiri’s coalition also called for “restoring control over the Iraqi air bases, especially Harir (Erbil) and Ain Al-Assad (Anbar), by the Iraqi security forces, and fully extending control over the Iraqi airspace.” 

This position comes one day after Washington and Baghdad announced, in a joint statement, their agreement to transform the role of US forces and the international coalition to fight ISIS in Iraq into a “training advisory”.

The two sides also agreed, during the third round of the strategic dialogue between the two countries, to withdraw “combat forces”, according to a timetable agreed upon by the two parties in “future technical talks.”

About 3 thousand soldiers from the international coalition forces, including 2,500 American soldiers, are deployed in Iraq to fight the terrorist organization “ISIS”, and the sites occupied by foreign forces are subject to repeated missile attacks.

Washington, the coalition leader, accuses armed Iraqi factions linked to Iran of being behind the attacks.

Harb said in a clarification that “People” saw (April 8, 2021), “The third round of the Iraqi-American dialogue that took place on 7/4/2021 was a political victory for Al-Kazemi with all the descriptions when America accepted the adoption of Iraq’s statement that the US military presence in Iraq is It is the competence of the Iraqi military authorities, as they are the ones who assess the need for the American presence or not. ”  

He added, “As the prime minister deposited the matter to a committee headed by the Chief of Staff of the Army, which is the one who knows best about the need for and the amount of the American military presence. As for the Kurds’ position regarding the rejection of the American withdrawal in general, it is, albeit largely realistic, for fear of ISIS, but it lacks an appreciation of regional conditions, which are known and the Sunni position The lack of support and rejection is justified for the suffering of the liberated provinces from the exploitation of influence after ISIS, but standing in front of those who want this does not justify the silent position of the outcome of the dialogue round, and the truth struck some Shiite leaders when they welcomed the findings of the Iraqi-American dialogue.  

He continued, “However, the lifting of US sanctions on Iran will have a great impact on US-Iraqi relations.
