Washington Orders Some U.S. Government Employees to Leave Iraq

According to Reuters, Washington ordered the departure of non-emergency government employees from Iraq on Wednesday, after repeated U.S. expressions of concern about threats from Iranian-backed forces.

The U.S. State Department has ordered the pullout of the employees from both the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad and its consulate in Erbil.

Iraq's Prime Minister on Tuesday said he was getting indications from talks with both the United States and Iran that “things will end well” despite the rhetoric.
