Al-Rikabi: The Iraq-Washington Agreement To Remove American Combat Forces From Iraq Is Unclear And Vague

Baghdad A member of the Parliamentary Security Committee, Kataa Al-Rikabi, described the Iraq-Washington agreement regarding the evacuation of US combat forces from Iraq as unclear and vague.

Al-Rikabi said, in a statement to the National Iraqi News Agency (NINA), that the talks between the US President and Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi did not address the preparation of the fighting forces and their locations in Iraq, and under what pretext did they last all this time, despite the previous strategic agreement leading to the withdrawal of Combat Forces in full in 2011.”

Al-Rikabi indicated that the House of Representatives and the Parliamentary Security and Defense Committee called many times to host the Prime Minister, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces in Parliament, to clarify some things, but he did not respond for a whole year, therefore it is not clear that Parliament will host Al-Kadhimi to explain what was agreed upon in Washington “.

Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi had confirmed that the dialogue with the United States of America was very positive, and was for the sake of the future of relations.”

He said: “The dialogue has strengthened Iraqi sovereignty, and it is an important and historic day for Iraq, and it is the beginning of a stage for organizing relations and removing all American combat forces from Iraq.”
