Canada to head new North Atlantic Treaty Organisation mission in Iraq

Canada To Lead NATO Training Mission In Iraq

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reviews an honour guard as they arrive at the International Peacekeeping and Security Centre in Yavoriv, Ukraine Tuesday July 12, 2016.

Once deployed, the Canadian troops will be stationed in Baghdad and the neighboring cities of Besmaya and Taji where they will deliver training on "explosive threat search" and "manual minefield breaching", the statement said. He said the 29-nation alliance supports the territorial integrity of Georgia, including its sovereignty over the breakaway regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

The Canadian military has had a presence in Iraq since September 2014, when several dozen special forces were deployed to the country as part of a USA -led coalition to help local Kurdish forces beat off an ISIL offensive that threatened to overwhelm the country.

Canada will take command of a new training mission in Iraq created to counter the threat of a Daesh re-emergence, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Wednesday at the NATO Summit in Brussels.

During his visit, Trudeau will meet with Latvian Prime Minister Maris Kucinskis and President Raimonds Vejonis. Trudeau also attended a candlelight vigil at a Latvian memorial to fallen soldiers, a vehicle display by multinational troops and spoke to Canadian military personnel.

Trump does want North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members to "pay up" and meet the two per cent benchmark the alliance has set as a defence spending target.

Antoine Griezmann hits back at Thibaut Courtois criticism
France will face surprise package Croatia in the final of the World Cup , which takes place at the Luzhniki Stadium on Sunday. France forward Antoine Griezmann has hit back at Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois's criticism of his team's style of play.

Trump has threatened to pull out of the alliance entirely if other member nations don't pony up.

"The US is spending many times more than any other country in order to protect them", Trump tweeted on Wednesday.

The department's explanation makes sense, said defence analyst David Perry of the Canadian Global Affairs Institute, calling it laudable that the government is investing more in pay and pensions for service members. With all, Trump believes the U.S.is getting "ripped off" in an unfair marketplace.

As the war of words escalated, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said there was "a special place in hell" for any leader who "engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door".

"He does seem to have a habit of doing what he says he's going to do". Members don't pay dues, although they do contribute to common military and civilian programs - and Washington pays nearly one-quarter of those costs.

Meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg Wednesday morning, Trump set the tone for what is expected to be one of the most acrimonious conferences in NATO's 69-year history.
