OTTAWA — Canada is closely monitoring developments after Iraq’s parliament called for the expulsion of foreign troops from the country, a spokesman for Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan said.
But Sajjan’s press secretary, Todd Lane, would not say whether contingency plans are in the works for getting Canadian military personnel out of Iraq should the situation there deteriorate further.
Iraqi lawmakers approved a resolution Sunday asking the Iraqi government to end an agreement under which American and allied forces have been in the country for more than four years to help fight the Islamic State group, also known as Daesh.
