“NATO is stepping up the fight against international terrorism. The Alliance’s defense ministers agreed in principle to strengthen NATO’s training mission in Iraq in close cooperation with the Iraqi government, ”the report said.
NATO withdrew part of its contingent from Iraq in the first half of January. This was done after Iranian General Qassem Suleimani died as a result of US air strikes in the Baghdad region.
Prior to this, the Iraqi parliament adopted a resolution that orders all foreign military personnel to leave the country.
