NATO agrees to send trainers to Iraq
Iraq-Regional, Politics, 10/9/2004
NATO announced yesterday approval of a detailed plan to dispatch officers to Iraq to train the Iraqi security forces. This announcement is considered an additional plan to carry out a military role for NATO in Iraq.
NATO drew during a meeting for its 26 representatives in Brussels a detailed plan to establish an academy to train senior Iraqi police officers under the leadership of the American general David Betrous, who is currently leading a multi national training force.
Betrous attended the meeting of NATO representatives and they agreed on appointing him and the mission's conditions and rules.
A spokesman for the NATO said after the meeting that details of the work of these forces and the date of starting its work directly in Iraq is still in need of having an agreement on it.
NATO officials said that military experts committee will complete within one week the mission's work plan which is expected to be discussed in the meeting of the NATO defense ministers to be held in Romania on October 13 and 14.
Initially, NATO leaders approved sending trainers to Iraq in a summit they held in Istanbul in June after many countries stopped opposing the sending of any forces to Iraq. These countries are France, Germany, Belgium and Spain.
