Iraq, US resume negotiations over future of US-led coalition in Iraq on Feb. 11 -statement

(Reuters) - Iraq and the Unites States will resume the negotiations over the future of the U.S.-led international military coalition in the country on Feb. 11, the Iraqi military spokesperson, Yahya Rasool, said in a statement on Thursday.

Talks began in January, but less than 24 hours later three U.S. service members were killed in an attack in Jordan that the United States said was carried out by Iran-backed militant groups in Syria and Iraq.
