GERMANY: ISWNews Analysis Group: The German parliament has approved a plan to extend the German army’s mission in Iraq until October 2022.
On Friday (January 28th), the German parliament, known as the Bundestag, approved by 553 votes to 110 against the proposal of the federal government to extend the mission of the German army in Iraq until October 2022. Accordingly, the German army will continue to participate in anti-ISIS missions in Iraq for nine months.
The German parliament said in a statement that Germany’s cooperation and presence is only to strengthen and rebuild the Iraqi army and provide related support services as part of NATO’s missions and the International Coalition against ISIS in Iraq.
The German government believes that the efforts of various parties to implement structural reforms in the Iraqi military institutions as well as the integration of the forces of the Hashad al-Shaabi organization in the Iraqi security structures with the aim of effective and direct control of its forces by the Iraqi government should be supported!
These words of the German government show that the Westerners are seeking the dissolution of the Hashad al-Shaabi organization and will certainly implement plans to strike at the organization in the near future.
It is noteworthy that the estimated budget for the plan to extend the presence of German forces in Iraq from February 1 to October 30 is about 73 million euros!
This came at a time when Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi had announced at the end of 2021 that the US (international) coalition’s combat mission in Iraq had ended and that the withdrawal of all foreign troops from Iraq had begun. He also said in a speech that in the near future we will all see the withdrawal of US coalition forces from Iraq within the framework of the recent strategic agreement with the US, and from now on the US coalition will play an advisory role.
Therefore, with the extension of the German army mission in Iraq, al-Kadhimi’s words and promises did not come true!
