On Sunday, January 5, the Parliament of Iraq voted in favor of a resolution providing for cancellation of agreement with an international coalition led by the United States. The corresponding decision was made at an extraordinary session of parliament, writes Al Arabiya.
Thus, the resolution provides for the right of the government to demand from Washington to withdraw troops from Iraq.
"Despite the internal and external difficulties that we may face, this remains the best solution for Iraq, in principle and in practice," said Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi.
During his speech in parliament, he called the killing of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani and Iraqi police commander Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes “political killing” and said that he was supposed to meet with Suleimani the day he was killed.
General Qassem Suleimani was killed on January 3 by order of US President Donald Trump as a result of a missile strike at Baghdad International Airport.
Soon, in a statement, Trump called Suleimani "the number one terrorist in the world."
The Iranian President has promised to avenge the death of the General.
