WASHINGTON - The Pentagon said on Wednesday a decision to send 450 additional US troops to Iraq would help speed up the training and equipping of Sunni tribes in Anbar province and support efforts by Iraqi security forces to retake the Ramadi-Falluja corridor.

The US Defense Department said in a statement that the decision to add 450 troops at al Taqaddum air base in eastern Anbar province was not a change in the US mission in Iraq but would enable an expansion of the overall training mission.
