Canadian-led NATO training mission in Iraq suspended amid security concerns

Canada’s defence minister says a Canadian-led NATO training mission in Iraq has been temporarily suspended in the wake of the killing of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani.

Harjit Sajjan confirmed a statement released by NATO earlier in the day, which said the security of personnel must be a top priority.

The training mission, currently led by Maj. Gen. Jennie Carignan, has been under Canadian command since it was launched in October 2018 at the request of the Iraqi government.
