BAGHDAD - 14 January 2020: Spokesman for the Iraqi Prime Minister William Warda said that his country will not sign an agreement to keep the US forces in Iraq to continue fighting against Daesh terrorists, Sky News reported.
He stressed that the Iraqi government will support the parliament’s vote on the withdrawal of US forces from the country.
"Up to this point, the Iraqi government is committed to implementing the decision of the Iraqi parliament, which stipulates that all foreign forces should withdraw from Iraq. Foreign forces do not only mean the presence of American forces. But all other foreign forces are in Iraq," the spokesman added.
