Hadi al-Amiri, head of the Fatah coalition in Iraq, reiterated the illegality of the presence of foreign troops on Iraqi soil during a meeting with Pedro Martinis, the Spanish ambassador to Baghdad.
According to the Badr News website, during the meeting that took place in Hadi Al-Amiri's office, the Iraqi political figure said that since the beginning of 2022, the continued presence of any foreign force in Iraq has been illegal and they have no right to do so.
Hadi al-Amiri refers to this date as the result of strategic talks between Baghdad and Washington, according to which all foreign forces were to leave Iraq by December 31, 2021. Of course, the United States did not withdraw any troops from Iraq and kept its troops by changing their name to advisory forces.
The head of the Fatah coalition described the relations between Iraq and Spain as deep-rooted and said that he insisted on improving relations and opening new horizons for further cooperation between Baghdad and Madrid.
In another part of his speech, he referred to the political stalemate in Iraq over the election of the Prime Minister and the President and said:
The political group under his leadership will make every effort to end this situation and form a government that can be responsible and do a good job of serving the Iraqi people.
