According to Pentagon Press Secretary Brig Gen Pat Ryder, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III and Iraqi Defense Minister Thabet al-Abbasi convened at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. for the inaugural U.S.-Iraq Joint Security Cooperation Dialogue (JSCD).


In the meeting, Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III underscored the robust U.S.-Iraq strategic partnership, emphasizing the United States' resolute dedication to fostering a secure, stable, and sovereign Iraq. 


Secretary Austin commended the remarkable strides made by the Iraqi Security Forces in their ongoing campaign against ISIS, reiterating his view that the terrorist group continues to pose a threat. 


He affirmed the United States' unwavering commitment to extending support through continued training, advising, assisting, and sharing intelligence with the Iraqi Security Forces at the invitation of the Iraqi government.


Secretary Austin expressed his thanks for Iraq's pledge to tackle the situation concerning detained ISIS fighters and displaced individuals in northeastern Syria. He encouraged the Iraqi delegation to continue repatriating, rehabilitating, reintegrating, and, where appropriate, prosecuting Iraqi nationals residing in the region.
