Al-Araji: There will be a return to the international coalition countries for what they provided to Iraq

The federal government will reach bilateral security agreements with the nations of the international coalition forces led by the United States of America in retaliation for what they gave to Iraq in the fight against ISIS, according to National Security Advisor Qasim Al-Araji, who stated on Saturday that there would be no rift with them should they leave the nation.

Al-Araji made these remarks during a discussion that started this morning on the fringes of the sixth Baghdad International Conference.

In his remarks, Al-Araji claimed that narcotics were now Iraq’s top threat. The security and intelligence agencies are pursuing the leaders of ISIS because they have precise knowledge about the group’s existence in certain isolated locations, such mountains and caves.

Al-Araji stated that the figures cited in certain media, which claim that the group has 5,000–6,000 members in Syria and Iraq, are inflated.

He continued by saying that from 2014 to 2024, our forces experienced significant development and confrontation with many groups, which is why the government, which was composed of representatives from all sectors, chose to reassess the forces’ presence. In 2014, we were forced to call in friendly troops to aid in our fight against ISIS.

Al-Araji continued by saying that the worldwide coalition’s member nations would be happy to sign bilateral security agreements as a thank you for the favor, and they have no objections.

Additionally, the National Security Advisor reaffirmed that international cover is there and that the NATO alliance is in Iraq for consultative purposes rather than as combatants. The international coalition is still in talks with us, and we haven’t cut ties with them. The Iraqi government is waiting on the committees’ conclusions.
