Future of Canada's military mission in Iraq facing more turmoil as situation changes by the hour - 2020-01-06
The future of Canada's military mission in Iraq is facing more turmoil after a U.S. general confirmed to Iraq's government that American forces would leave over the coming days even as U.S. President Donald Trump said troops were going nowhere until Iraq pays billions of dollars.
The situation in Iraq, changing hour by hour, has sent Canadian Forces and the Department of National Defence planners scrambling. However, DND sources say the Canadian military's response will be linked to whatever the U.S. decides.
More than 300 Canadian personnel are in Iraq, primarily working to train Iraqi forces.
