A spokesman for Al-Nujaba Movement in Iraq warned against making any concessions to Washington in the forthcoming talks with Baghdad.

Iran PressMiddle East: Iraq's Deputy Secretary-General and official spokesman for the al-Nujaba Movement, Nasr al-Shammari in a Twitter post reacted to the rumor on the US efforts to stay in Iraq and circumvent the parliament's approved plan to leave the country.

"Any negotiations in which the Iraqis' demand for a full and immediate withdrawal (of all foreign forces) from all over Iraq is not considered, are illegal and we will not recognize it," he added.

Baghdad-Washington strategic negotiations that are set to begin in the middle of this month include the US military presence in Iraq, US military support for Iraq to fight ISIS remnants, commitment to protect foreign companies operating in Iraq, and hygienic help for the Coronavirus patients.

The Iraqi Parliament has passed and approved a plan to expel foreign troops from its soil on January 6, 2019, two days after the assassination of Lt. Gen. Qasem Soleimani, the late commander of IRGC Quds Force, and Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, Deputy Chairman of al-Hashd al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization Forces) and their companions in the US military terrorist attack, near Baghdad airport.
