DIALA / Aswat al-Iraq: A leader in north Iraq’s Kurdistan Alliance has demanded that a portion of the U.S.
forces remain in the areas of dispute of eastern Iraq’s Diala Province, due to what he described as non-readiness of the Iraqi forces to take over the security dossier in the province.
“Our Alliance in Diala Province’s Council demands to keep part of the U.S.
forces in the Province, for several reasons, most important of which is the deterioration of the security conditions in the province,” Assistant Chairman of the Province’s Security Committee, Dilair Hassan told Aswat al-Iraq news agency on Thursday.
“The decision on the complete withdrawal of the U.S.
forces from Iraqi territories, including Diala Province, will be reflected passively on the security conditions, especially if all evidences point to the non-readiness of the Iraqi forces to receive the security dossier in full,” Hassan said.
