U.S.-backed Iraq signs military accord with Iran as 'strategic necessity' - World Tribune | World Tribune
All is fair in love and war. That's what Iraq's newest deal with Iran says. Having been failed by the U.S which has failed to help Iraq by sending troops to help them fight Daesh, they chose to get whatever help they could get, even from neighbors whom they don't like that much.
I hope this new deal works better and helps Iraq drive Daesh out of their borders.
NICOSIA — Iraq, a major recipient of U.S. aid, has signed a military cooperation accord with neighboring Iran.
Iran and Iraq have signed a memorandum of understanding meant to rebuild Baghdad’s military. Officials said the MoU would focus on forming Iranian-trained Iraq Army units that would battle Islamic State of Iraq and Levant.
