Victory Alliance, led by Haidar al-Abadi, announced its objection to the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq at the present time, calling on political blocs to be careful when they ask for this demand.

“The withdrawal of the US troops from Iraq is difficult, because of the inactive terrorist cells in the country, waiting for the right moment to resume their terrorism again, especially the Iraqi-Syrian border is fragile now,” MP of Victory Alliance Nada Shaker stated on Sunday.

“The demand of the political blocs to withdraw the US forces is legal and legitimate, but in requires more studies, organizing to find sufficient, trained troops to guard the borders," Shaker added.
