In a letter to the Iraqi military, the US-led coalition fighting against ISIS has said: “We respect your sovereign decision to order our departure”.
The letter, seen by Reuters, read: “Sir, in deference to the sovereignty of the Republic of Iraq, and as requested by the Iraqi Parliament and the Prime Minister, CJTF-OIR will be repositioning forces over the course of the coming days and weeks to prepare for onward movement.”
The letter was reportedly sent from the United States Marine Corps Brigadier General William H Seely III, the commanding general of Task Force Iraq, and was addressed to the Iraqi defence ministry’s Combined Joint Operations Baghdad.
