Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said Tuesday that the partial withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq is not “acceptable.”
Talking to the reporters in his weekly press briefing, Mehmanparast said that the continued presence of the U.S. troops in Iraq under different pretexts, such as training Iraqi forces is “not acceptable.”
This indicates that the U.S. officials have not done serious measures to pull out their forces from Iraq, said Mehmanparast.
“The U.S. officials statements over the pullout of their troops are contradictory, since the U.S. President Barack Obama had said it would pull out U.S. forces from Iraq but they are continuing to keep part of their forces in the country, he added.
