{Umniah: Al Furat News} A US military official revealed the number of soldiers who will remain in Iraq during the month of September. 

The official said in a press statement, “We will maintain the presence of 2,500 American soldiers in Iraq during the current month of September.”

Yesterday, Thursday, the Iraqi Military Technical Committee held a meeting with its American counterpart in the capital, Baghdad.

According to the Security Media Cell, “the two sides agreed to reduce the combat units and American capabilities of the military bases in Ain al-Assad and Erbil, to be completed by the end of this September.”

And it added in a statement, “The international coalition leadership has also been reduced from a headquarters led by a team officer to a smaller headquarters led by a major general for the purposes of management, support, equipping, and the exchange of intelligence information and advice.”

The two sides reiterated that “the presence of US forces and the international coalition forces is at the invitation of Iraq and depends on providing protection from the Iraqi government in accordance with international laws and norms and in accordance with Iraqi sovereignty.”

They also agreed to hold regular sessions to complete the discussion of the remaining steps to secure the transition to a non-combat role for the international coalition forces by the time set for it at the end of this year.
