albawaba -

The U.S. forces will remain in Iraq as long as necessary, the U.S.-led coalition said on Sunday.

“We’ll keep troops there as long as we think they’re needed,” Army Colonel Sean Ryan, a spokesman for the U.S.-led coalition against Daesh, told a press conference held in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

"The main reason, after ISIS is defeated militarily, is the stabilization efforts and we still need to be there for that, so that’s one of the reasons we’ll maintain a presence," he added.
