Poland to withdraw "several hundred soldiers" from Iraq by summer

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Berlin, March 11, IRNA -- Poland will pull out "several hundred 
soldiers" from Iraq by summer, Polish Defense Minister Jerzy 
Szmajdzinski has said. 
A hardline supporter of the US war in Iraq, Poland had recently 
reduced its 2,500-men troop contingent in the war-stricken country by 
800 soldiers. 
Szmajdzinski had announced earlier that Poland would be ready to 
keep its troops in Iraq until the expiration of its UN mandate by the 
end of this year. 
Since October 2003, Poland leads a multi-national force in Iraq 
which oversees a mainly Shi`a region.
