Iraq Us Security Agreement
As part of the Iraq-U.S. Strategic Framework Agreement, we continue to focus on strengthening Iraq`s defense capabilities, assisting with security, and cooperating with Iraq to improve its stability and security, including through operations to prevent the resurgence of Daesh. U.S. security cooperation activities enable the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) to respond to threats and conduct counterterrorism operations, while supporting the long-term development of a modern, accountable, and professional ISF capable of defending Iraq, its people, and its borders while upholding the rule of law. The Aswat al-Iraq news agency reported a mixed reaction from the Iraqi people to the news of the cabinet approval of the agreement. .
