Canada is planning to extend the period of its mission in Iraq, according to Colin Keiver, commander of the Canadian Task Force in Iraq.


The Iraqi government will rely on Canada and other international partners to maintain stability after the defeat of the ISIS terrorist group, Keiver added on Saturday.


The Iraqi government is well aware that the country is in need of constant assistance in order to ensure security and achieve stability and prosperity, he stated.


In 2014, Canada had decided to send forces to Iraq to take part in fighting ISIS militants.
