US troops will withdraw from Iraq: Joe Biden

By Abdul Nisar

Washington, Jul 19: US Vice President Joe Biden told that the US combat troops in Iraq will withdraw by the end of Aug 2010.

He told that withdrawal would not be delayed by power-sharing negotiations in the Iraqi government and the withdrawal would not affect the physical stability of Iraq.

Joe Biden explained that the Iraqi transition government is working and Iraqi security will be provided by the Iraqis.

The American forces in 2009 pulled out of Iraqi cities and are working to formally end combat operations by Sep 1 2010, cutting the US military force in Iraq from 90,000 to 50,000.

But in Iraq, political blocs are still discussing the formation of a new government, months after the Mar 7 2010 elections.
