Britain to Cut 1,600 Troops in Iraq, Blair Says

Posted by alanmirs on February 21, 2007


 

Around 460 Danish soldiers under British command in southern Iraq will also be withdrawn by August, the government in Copenhagen said today.

“What all this means is not that Basra is how we want it to be,” Mr. Blair said, “but it does mean that the next chapter in Basra’s history can be written by Iraqis.”

Most of the British troops now in Iraq are deployed in and around the port city of Basra near the southern tip of the country
