US President Joe Biden and Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kazimi will announce an agreement on Monday, according to which the American combat mission in the republic will end by the end of 2021. This was reported by the Associated Press (AP), citing a source in the Biden administration.

According to him, subsequently, American servicemen in Iraq will only train and advise their Iraqi colleagues, without taking part in hostilities. The agency’s interlocutor explained that the Iraqi military is “tested in combat” and “able” to independently ensure the security of the country.

On July 26, the American leader will meet with the head of the Iraqi cabinet at the White House.

On January 5, 2020, the Iraqi parliament adopted a resolution demanding the complete withdrawal of all foreign forces from the country’s territory. In mid-March of this year, Iraqi President Barham Saleh clarified that the number of American troops in the Arab Republic does not exceed 2.5 thousand people. In April, al-Kazim said that the increase in the level of combat readiness of the national army and security forces, as well as successes in the fight against terrorists, allow for the withdrawal of up to 60% of the foreign military contingent.
