The General Secretary of Peshmerga forces announced on wednesday that U.S. and Germany suspended military trainings to the Peshmerga and Iraqi forces amid heightened tensions in the region.
The General Secretary of Peshmerga forces, Jabar Yawar told PUKmedia: "As a means of self-protection, U.S. and Germany has suspended all military activities like training and advising the Peshmerga and all Iraqi forces", adding that "until now we have not received an official letter to inform us of such decisions."
He pointed out that, "They have suspended all activities in the Kurdistan Region and Iraq due to heightened tension of the situation, but they say that suspension of the training is temporary."
The General Secretary of Peshmerga also said: "The coalition forces have trained military trainers for us who are now qualified to train our forces, so if those countries stop their training, as ministry of Peshmerga we will hire these trainers to train our forces."
