another state or become part of a battle between two countries.Abdul Mahdi reiterated his

denial of the presence of US military bases in Iraq, saying that US forces in

the country train the Iraqi army personnel.As US President Donald

Trump earlier told CBS that his administration would keep US troops in Iraq to

"watch Iran," Iraq's President Barham Salih said that "the

presence of US troops in Iraq is part of an agreement to support Iraqi forces in

US president's remarks, saying that "Trump did not ask for our permission

to watch Iran. Do not burden Iraq with issues that don't represent a priority

to it."
