NATO resumes mission in Iraq

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The Alliance resumes its mission in Iraq. As explained by the commander of the NATO combined forces, Tod Walters, Baghdad sent a letter with security guarantees, so work will continue in the next few days or weeks.

Recall, the NATO mission in Iraq was suspended after an American drone killed Iranian General Qassem Suleimani on January 3. The alliance stopped training the Iraqi military, and some countries decided to evacuate their specialists from the region.

After the assassination of Suleimani, the Iraqi authorities demanded that the United States withdraw troops from the country. However, later changed their minds.
