Iraqi Defense Minister Sadoun Dulaimi has denied part of an agreement with Iran struck last week includes assistance in training the country’s new military.

At a Baghdad news conference, Dulaimi denied Iranian Defense Minister Adm. Ali Shamkhani’s claim Iran would provide training as part of a five-point memorandum of understanding.

He said the agreement did call for Iran to give $1 billion in reconstruction aid to the Iraqi government, some of which would go to the Defense Ministry.

Dulaimi said the new, year-old Iraqi army was satisfied with the training provided by the U.S. military, the Washington Post reported.

“When Iraqis are able to establish security, I will ask the multinational forces to leave,” he said.
