U.S. withdrawal from Iraq a demonstrative step before congressional elections - Iran's Foreign Ministry
U.S. withdrawal from Iraq is a demonstrative step before congressional elections, said Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast, Mehr news agency reported.
Mehmanparast said that before the upcoming elections, President Barack Obama made a demonstrative step to secure a victory of the Democratic Party. However, actually 50,000-strong American military continues activities in various areas in Iraq.
According to him, it shows that the U.S. will not withdraw from Iraq. The people of the United States are tired of war, and to win votes in elections, Obama has taken such a step, Mehmanparast said.
Elections to the U.S. Congress will be held November 2, 2010.
