They will also address other key points such as the economy, politics and security in a third round of strategic dialogue between the two parties.

According to Iraqi representatives, the country can defend its borders without the need for foreign forces.

The member of that body, Badr Al-Ziyadi, assured that Iraq has excellent and advanced security forces to protect its sovereignty and independence.

During the negotiations, he noted, it will be clear that the coalition remains in Iraq to train and advise Iraqis against the Islamic State terror group.

US troops in Iraq are often targeted by rocket fire and roadside bombs, while a law passed by Parliament for a withdrawal of foreign military personnel remains unimplemented.

That legislation was adopted by Congress shortly after the assassinations in Baghdad of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani and the deputy commander of the Popular Mobilization Units, Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, committed by US aviation.
