Allegations Regarding U.S. and Regional States’ Intentions towards Mosul

The U.S. Embassy firmly rejects the allegations recently made by a member of the Council of Representatives regarding U.S. and Regional states’ intentions towards Mosul. According to U.S. Embassy spokesperson Scott Bolz, “We only support military deployments inside Iraq with the explicit consent of the Iraqi government. This includes the deployment of U.S. military, international coalition personnel, or military personnel from any country. We are working tirelessly with forces under the command and control of the Government of Iraq with one objective in mind: to defeat Da’esh. And we are succeeding.”
