BAGHDAD, July 14 (VOI) – Iraq and the United States have agreed on most points of the joint cooperation agreement, which is scheduled to govern the presence of U.S. troops in Iraq, a Shiite Unified Iraqi Coalition leader said on Monday.



"Disagreement between the Iraqi and U.S. sides has largely subsided and they have agreed on many points," Hassan al-Saneed told Aswat al-Iraq- Voices of Iraq- (VOI).
According to al-Saneed, the Iraqi vision of the security agreement with Washington can be divided into three aspects: cultural, economic and educational strategic cooperation, a timetabled withdrawal of the Multi-National Force (MNF), and military operations' go-ahead and coordination with the Iraqi government.
"Fighting terrorism will entail joint operations and coordination with the Iraqi government…," Saneed noted.
Commenting on the immunity granted to U.S. forces in Iraq, the parliamentarian said: "A U.S. soldier will be subject to U.S. law inside his camp, but outside the camp many details of how to subject him to Iraqi law will have to be further discussed."
When asked about the main point of disagreement between the two sides, Saneed said: "Both sides believe that it is necessary to set a time limit on troop presence, but they disagree on the period that foreign troops should stay in Iraq."
The Unified Iraqi Coalition (UIC) is the largest parliamentary bloc, which holds 82 seats in the Parliament.
The agreement governs the presence of U.S. forces in the country after 2008 and will not come into force without the approval of the Iraqi Parliament, which has 275 members from five blocs, in addition to the Sadrist movement and al-Fadhila party. The U.S. troops' presence currently relies on a mandate by the United Nations and is annually renewed at the request of the Iraqi government.
A declaration of principles was signed between U.S. President George W. Bush and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki in December 2007. The declaration was scheduled to be ratified on July 31, 2008 and to come into force as of January 1, 2009.
