The commander of the British armed forces in Iraq revealed on Tuesday that Great Britain planned on withdrawing all of its troops from Iraq within two-and-a-half years. He said that the first phase of the pullout would begin already in a few weeks.

Britain currently has approximately 8,000 troops in Iraq, most of whom are stationed in Basra.
