In January, the Iraqi Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that Baghdad had agreed with Washington to establish a timetable for the withdrawal of the international coalition from Iraq.

The Iraqi ministry mentioned in a statement that the step follows the growing capabilities of the Iraqi forces.

Iraq and the United States agreed to launch a Higher Military Commission to evaluate the threat ISIS poses and to draw up a timetable for the gradual withdrawal of the advisors of the international coalition combating ISIS in Iraq.

The agreement calls for a shift to full bilateral cooperation in the areas of politics, economy, culture, security, and the armed forces with the other members of the international coalition, in accordance with the goals of the Iraqi government.
