The military spokesman for the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Major General Abdul Karim Khalaf, announced the formation of two Iraqi delegations to negotiate with NATO to find a new window for cooperation.
Khalaf said in a statement to the Iraqi News Agency: "The Iraqi government has many options to determine the form of the relationship with NATO," noting that "these options are still under discussion and talks, because they are linked with many countries within the coalition and not one country."
Khalaf pointed out that "Iraq has cooperation with France, Canada, Britain and even the United States with training issues," stressing that "the best way to cooperate, which meets the needs of the Iraqi Ministry of Defense, is to be chosen." He explained that "the program that has existed with NATO since 2012 is still ongoing, but Iraq wants to find a new window that will be a form of a new relationship with NATO.
