Jordan and Iraq sign military training cooperation agreement
The Jordanian and Iraqi armies on Monday signed a training cooperation agreement, according to Jordan's official Petra news agency.
The signing ceremony was attended by the Iraqi Chief of Staff General Babakr Zibari, a delegation from the NATO military alliance and senior army officers from the two countries, the agency said, dpa reported.
The accord provides for "boosting cooperation in the fields of training, education and exchange of experience between training military establishments" in the two countries, it added.
The agency gave no details, but the Jordanian security forces trained at least 32,000 Iraqi police personnel after the US-led invasion toppled the regime of Saddam Hussein in 2003.
