Joe Biden, current President of America, describes American forces is going to wind up their battle mission in the Republic of Iraq by the end of this year. But US forces will continue to guide and train the military of Iraq.
The declaration appeared as American President Biden had negotiated with Mustafa al-Kadhimi (Prime Minister of Iraq) at the White House.
Now there are 2,500 American soldiers in the Republic of Iraq assisting Iraqi forces to counter what remains of the Islamic State group. Moreover, many American soldiers are expected to stay the same, but the action is taken as an effort to assist the Prime Minister of Iraq.
American troops existence in the Republic of Iraq has turned out to be a significant problem since the leader of an Iran-supported Shia Muslim militia, and Qasem Soleimani (top Iranian general) were killed earlier year in an American drone attack in Baghdad (capital of the country).
Political groups united to Iran have required the removal of all forces from the American-led global alliance that opposes IS, despite the ongoing danger created by the Sunni jihadist group. Furthermore, Shia militias have, at the same time, been alleged America for executing hundreds of mortars, drones, and rockets attacks on the military bases of Iraq that hold alliance forces in an ostensible effort to force them to leave.
Elimination of another battle
For America President Biden, the statement marks the termination of another battle that started under George Bush (former President). Joe Biden even announced earlier that American troops will also leave Afghanistan.
President Biden, while speaking at the White House, described to the Iraqi Prime Minister that their counter-terrorism mission is going to continue even as they shift to this new phase.
His counterpart responded that today their relationship is stronger than ever, and their cooperation is for the environment, health, culture, education, economy, and much more. Besides this, he has claimed no overseas battle troops are demanded in the Republic of Iraq.
In 2003, American-led forces attacked Iraq to takeover President Saddam Hussein and eradicated mass destruction weapons. Moreover, George Bush, former American President, pledged a peaceful and free Iraq, but it was overwhelmed by a bloody sectarian insurgency.
American combat soldiers finally went back in 2011. After three years, they came back at the appeal of the Iraqi govt as IS militants attacked significant parts of the nation.
President Joe Biden said that their role in Iraq is going to be dealing with being available to continue to guide, to help, to assist, and deal with ISIS as it comes.
