US military refusal to pull out troops to be met with Iraqi nation’s resistance, MP warns

An Iraqi lawmaker has stressed the need for the implementation of a resolution adopted by Iraq’s parliament concerning the expulsion of US-led foreign forces from the Arab country, saying that the Iraqi nation will resort to resistance in case the Pentagon refuses to abide by the decision.

"The decision to remove foreign troops from Iraq is an Iraqi matter. If the Iraqi government's political solutions for the withdrawal of foreign forces do not succeed, we will then resort to resistance to attain the objective,” Mohammed al-Baldawi, a member of the Iraqi Parliament's Security and Defense Committee, told the Arabic-language Baghdad Today news agency on Thursday.

He made the remarks as the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday that authorities in Washington are counting on reconsidering the decision of former US president Donald Trump’s administration to reduce the number of US forces in Afghanistan and Iraq.
