International Coalition: US forces will remain in Iraq as long as necessary

BAGHDAD, US forces will remain in Iraq as long as there is a need to contribute to restoring stability, the International Coalition said.

"American forces will remain in Iraq as long as there is a need to help stabilize the areas that were under the control of the Islamic state organization," Coalition Spokesman Col. Shawn Ryan told a news conference in Abu Dhabi.

"The troops will stay there as long as they are needed, and after a military defeat, the main reason is stabilization efforts and there will still be a need to stay for this reason, so this is one of the reasons why we will stay," he said.
