Slovakia to pull out of Iraq in February 2007

October 19, 2006

As reported on BBC News, Slovak President Fico announced that Slovak troops will be out of Iraq by February 2007.

This is not a major shift in Slovak policy as Fico was elected under a platform which included immediate withdrawal of the troops; once elected, Fico opted to keep his troops in the country for an extra six months.

Who’s next? And what will US response be? Certainly Fico’s announcement is no surprise, but no welcome news for the US Iraqi mission. It follows the recent speculation that British troops may be out of Iraq as soon as ten months from now.
