Tishwash:  Baghdad wants America to withdraw, but with 5 types of military support remaining.. Sudanese advisor

Sobhan Mulla Jiyad, political advisor to the Prime Minister, said that Iraq told Washington that it wants to see America’s technological, civilizational, cultural and economic face, instead of the military face that accompanied the Iraqis for 20 years, despite the need for five types of military support remaining, stressing the agreement with the US National Security Advisor on Scheduling the withdrawal of coalition forces from the country.

Mulla Jiyad mentioned, in an interview with journalist Saleh Al-Hamdani:

Regarding the position on the international coalition, we noticed during a meeting with the US National Security Advisor that the conversation was open and frank, and there was an agreement to begin the work of the joint committee that schedules the exit of the international coalition and replaces it by building bilateral economic, cultural and social relations with the countries of the coalition.

We do not want to harm the countries of the international coalition, but the framework of dealing between Iraq and one country and between them is framed by bilateral agreements between one country and another, and also with America. We are eager to see the other side of America.

During 20 years, we have only seen the military and security face of America, and this is a face that is difficult for people to bear. So let us see the second face, which is the technological, civilizational, cultural, and economic face, through bilateral agreements with it. This matter is strongly raised with the American National Security Advisor, and also raised with the Secretary-General of NATO. NATO is strong and serious, and the issue is not the result of recent attacks.

The matter was raised since the visit of the Iraqi security delegation headed by the US Secretary of Defense, and they were told that you are an international coalition established to fight ISIS in Iraq. Now let us estimate the numbers of what remains of ISIS in Iraq and Syria. They estimated them in Iraq at about 1,500 elements, while in Syria they are 10,000, so Iraq put forward He can confront these 1,500 terrorists, and we do not need combat forces, but we only need security and intelligence aid in addition to training, development, and logistical support.

From the political side, these two issues have been decided with the National Security Advisor and the Secretary-General of NATO, and the discussions will almost certainly be placed on the agenda and developed into bilateral relations.  link
