WARSAW – Out of Iraq?

With events in Iraq following the US strike that killed Iranian top general Soleimani prompting calls for ‘restraint and de-escalation’, Poland appears undecided on whether to withdraw its troops from the country.

With President Andrzej Duda ignoring the opposition’s plea to hold a National Security Council to settle the matter in a bi-partisan way, Polish authorities have declared the need to wait and see what its NATO allies, many of whom have withdrawn their troops, do.

Meanwhile, Poland’s far-left Razem party is organising a protest against the presence of Polish troops in Iraq and the use of drones and missiles in international politics, which will take place in Warsaw.
