Iraq's government said talks will resume with the United States on Sunday on the future of anti-jihadist coalition troops in the country, a process Baghdad said would lead to the "end of the mission".

    A first round of talks opened on January 27 but was swiftly suspended after a drone attack killed three US military personnel at a base in Jordan the following day, leading to US reprisal strikes.

    The talks "to discuss and prepare a timeline for the end of the mission for the international coalition" will "resume work on Sunday," the military spokesman for the Iraqi prime minister, General Yehia Rasool, said in a statement Thursday.
