The German government announced that the suspension of military training for Peshmerga and Iraqi forces is a temporary measure, stressing that there is no evidence of direct attacks on German targets in Iraq.


The United States, Germany and the Netherlands announced yesterday the suspension of military training for Iraqi forces and Peshmerga against the backdrop of escalations between the United States and Iran.


The newspaper said: “The suspension of German missions in Iraq is a temporary measure, adding that the suspension continues until further notice.”


The report quoted a German government spokesman as saying that there was no risk to German positions in Iraq, noting that the measure was temporary and the training of the Peshmerga and Iraqi forces was likely to resume several days later.
