Prime Minister of Iraq denies establishment of new US bases in his country

SANAA, Jan. 10 (YPA) – Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi denied reports that the United States is establishing four new bases in Iraq for its troops withdrawing from Syria.

This came at a press conference held by “Abdul Mahdi” in Baghdad, on Wednesday.

He referred to the allegations in recent weeks about the concentration of the US army withdrawn from Syria in Iraq and the establishment of the Washington administration of new bases in Iraq, stressing that he received no information about the desire of the United States of America to establish new bases in Iraq.

“It is quite the opposite, and the number of foreign soldiers in the country, including the Americans, is falling day by day,” he said.

This comes after a military intelligence source revealed on Wednesday the intention of US forces to establish four new military bases in different areas of Anbar, pointing out that these bases will be equipped with advanced military systems.
