When Iraqi puppet prime minister, Nuri Al-Maliki, visited Brussels to meet with NATO leaders last week, he told Al-Arabiya TV that he did not come to ask "for foreign troops." He said that Iraqi troops can take care of security in Iraq but that they need only technical assistance. As for the presence of more than 160,000 foreign troops in Iraq, he said that he was surprised to learn that but promised to investigate. Upon investigation, he admitted that there are indeed some 39 foreign soldiers from Mongolia but that there are no others.
