Iraq says new talks Sunday on withdrawal of U.S.-led troops


Iraq's government said talks will resume with the United States on Sunday on the future of anti-jihadist coalition troops in the country, a process Baghdad said would lead to the "end of the mission".

A first round of talks opened on January 27 but was  swiftly suspended after a drone attack killed three U.S. military personnel at a base in Jordan the following day, leading to U.S. reprisal strikes. 

The talks "to discuss and prepare a timeline for the end of the mission for the international coalition" will "resume work on Sunday," the military spokesman for the Iraqi Prime Minister, General Yehia Rasool, said in a statement Thursday.
