Troop Reductions to Be Conditions-Based, Coalition Spokesman Says

By Sgt. Sara Wood, USA American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, July 28, 2005 – Any reduction of U.S. troops in Iraq will be based strictly on security conditions in the country and the readiness of Iraqi forces to conduct independent operations, a Multinational Force Iraq spokesman in Baghdad said today.

The United States will not reduce forces until the Iraqi security forces can maintain the security environment, Air Force Brig. Gen. Donald Alston stressed in a news conference. The United States and Iraq will consult on when these conditions have been met.

Army Gen. George W. Casey, commander of Multinational Force Iraq, said July 27 that substantial troop reductions could begin as early as spring or summer if the insurgency is put down and Iraqi forces are ready to handle the security mission.
