이라크, 외국군 주둔 연장 법안 부결 (E)


이라크 의회가 올 연말 이후에도 외국군의 주둔을 허용하는 법안을 부결시켰습니다.

하지만 이번 조치는 최근 이라크와 미국이 맺은 안보협정에는 영향을 미치지 않습니다. 양국은 유엔이 규정한 외국군 주둔 기한인 오는 31일 이후에도 미군 주둔을 허용하는 협정에 이미 서명했습니다.

한편 의회에서 부결된 법안은 영국과 호주, 에스토니아, 루마니아, 엘 살바도르 군의 주둔을 내년 7월까지 연장한다는 내용을 담고 있었습니다.

이와 별도로 영국은 최근 이라크 주둔군을 내년 5월까지 철수하겠다는 계획을 밝혔습니다.

Iraq's parliament has rejected a draft law that would have allowed troops from other countries to remain beyond the end of the year.

The draft law would not have affected the presence of U.S. troops. The United States already signed an agreement with the Iraqi government allowing troops to remain in Iraq after the United Nations mandate expires December 31st.

The law would have authorized the presence of troops from Britain, Australia, Estonia, Romania and El Salvador to remain until the end of July.

Britain recently said it is withdrawing all of its forces by the end of May.

In a separate development, Iraq's interior ministry says 23 officials accused of working to rebuild the outlawed Baath party of former leader Saddam Hussein have been released. However, the Associated Press quotes the country's national security minister (Sherwan al-Waili)as saying 19 men are still being held.
