Iraq asks United States to set up mechanism for troop withdrawal

Defense Secretary Mark Esper arrives to brief members of the Senate on the details of the threat that prompted the U.S. to kill Iranian Gen. Qassem So Decide mechanism for troop withdrawal, Iraqi PM tells US

Iraqi lawmakers passed a non-binding resolution to oust U.S. troops following a strike that killed top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani and senior Iraqi militia commander Abu Mahdi Al Muhandis last Friday.

Fifty-six % of respondents disapprove of Trump's grasp of the battle with Tehran, whereas 43 % approve and a couple of % skipped answering the query, in line with an ABC Information/Ipsos Ballot.

Trump's USA political rivals have challenged his decision to order the killing of Soleimani and questioned its timing in a US election year.

Iraq's most powerful religious leader called on rival political parties to unite, saying discord between them had given rise to and risked perpetuating the crisis.

The ballot surveyed 525 individuals between January 10-11.

The death of a top Iranian general in an American missile strike was long overdue, the leaders of a US -based pro-democracy group said on Tuesday, and might "open a window" for dissidents to challenge a weakened government in Tehran.

Pelosi scheduled the vote after Iran fired missiles at two military bases in Iraq housing USA troops.

President Hassan Rouhani has warned of a "very unsafe response" if the US makes "another mistake", and a senior commander has vowed "harsher revenge" for the killing of a top Iranian general.

Although the two sides seem to have stepped back from the brink of armed conflict, Trump vowed on Wednesday to impose the additional sanctions.

The sanctions were announced by US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in an appearance at the White House alongside US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Iran appeared to have calibrated its attack to avoid stoking further US retaliation, giving some early warning to its Iraqi allies to avoid casualties. Soleimani was the head of Iran's Quds Force.

Iraq's parliament, dominated by lawmakers representing Muslim Shi'ite groups who have been united by the killing of Soleimani alongside an Iraqi militia leader, passed a resolution on Sunday calling for all foreign troops to leave. He contends his decision saved American lives but has offered few details of the threat that prompted the decision. Other senior figures have said Iran will match the scale of Soleimani's killing when it responds, but that it will choose the time and place.

Iran stated after Soleimani's death it will no longer honor any of the limits of its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, an accord Trump withdrew from in May 2018. But the Washington DC-based National Iranian American Council expressed concern in a statement on Monday about "alarming reports" that over 60 Iranians and Iranian-Americans had been detained and questioned by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials at Canada's border with Washington State.
