Information / Translation…
The Danish government has announced its readiness to lead the NATO mission in Iraq , saying it will send 200 Danish troops to the country next year, but the proposal requires parliamentary approval and will be submitted to the alliance next week.
"The year-old NATO mission, which provides 500 NATO troops to train and advise Iraqi forces, is currently led by Canada and will end in 2020."
For his part, Danish Prime Minister Mitt Frederiksen told parliament that "NATO told us that we may take the initiative and we will do so because we have a mission to be followed in Iraq ."
The non-combat mission seeks to strengthen Iraq's military and security capabilities, including in the areas of medical assistance, maintenance of armored vehicles, counter-explosive devices and civilian and military planning.
"The Danish proposal, which must first be approved by a parliamentary vote, will be presented at a NATO meeting in London in early December," the report said.
