US congratulates Iraq on 1st anniversary of victory against ISIS

The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad has congratulated the Iraqi people on the first anniversary of Iraq’s military victory against ISIS.

The embassy said in a Monday statement that it will continue to cooperate with the Iraqi government to achieve aspirations of its people.

“We continue to work closely with the government of Iraq, supporting it to achieve security, stability, and economic prosperity for all Iraqis,” the statement read.

Former Iraqi prime minister Haider al-Abadi declared the end of military operations against Islamic State in Iraq on December 9, 2017 three years after the militant group captured about a third of Iraq’s territory.
