Iraq has received US letter regarding troop withdrawal - PM

CAIRO, Jan 7 (Reuters) - Iraq has received a letter from the U.S. army concerning the withdrawal of its troops from the country, Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi said on Tuesday.

The English and Arabic language versions of the letter are not identical, so Iraq has requested clarifications, he added.

The Iraqi parliament backed a resolution requesting the withdrawal of all foreign troops from the country after a U.S. military drone killed Iran’s top military commander last Friday, igniting a regional crisis. (Reporting by Ahmed Rasheed, writing by Nayera Abdallah Editing by Gareth Jones)
