Baghdad / Obelisk: The International Coalition affirmed, on Saturday, July 31, 2021, its commitment to providing support to Iraq in order to achieve stability.
The coalition stated in a Twitter post that Al-Masala followed that after the liberation of Iraqi territory from ISIS control in 2017, our Iraqi partners continue to strive to preserve their hard-earned gains and restore normal life and growth in conflict-affected areas.
We will remain committed to providing support to our partners in order to achieve stability and prosperity in Iraq.
The spokesman for the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Major General Yahya Rasoul, had revealed earlier the areas of the new relationship with the international coalition, after the announcement of the withdrawal of US combat forces from Iraq.
Rasool said that all that Iraq needs from the international coalition is for a new relationship based on partnership in the fight against terrorism, and support for the Iraqi armed forces with training, equipment and armament, in addition to the intelligence effort.
He added that terrorism still poses a threat, and there are still areas in northeastern Syria where it has a large presence.
He added that Iraq’s relationship with the international coalition will be based on the issue of increasing expertise, training, advice, arming and support for the security forces in these areas.
He pointed out that there was no need for any foreign combat forces on the ground.
It is noteworthy that Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi’s meeting at the White House with US President Joe Biden witnessed the confirmation of the absence of combat forces by December 31.
