The US administration decided to withdraw half of its diplomats from the US embassy in Baghdad as tensions rise with Iran ahead of the first anniversary of the U.S. killing of a top Iranian general, Qassem Soleimani.

Axar.az reports the staff downsizing, confirmed by a US official and a State Department official, is in principle supposed to be short-term. However given the abrupt downward trajectory of US-Iranian relations through the ultimate months of President Donald Trump’s tenure, it isn’t clear when a fuller endowment will resume.
