Sheikh Mahdi al-Samide'ei, senior Iraqi Sunni mufti issued a statement on Wednesday referring to preparation of the parliament to pass a bill mandating withdrawal of the foreign forces from the country stressing solidarity as a prerequisite for the move, reported Taqrib News Agency (TNA).
"Iraqi people will cooperate with each other so that the parliament passes the bill for pullout of the foreign forces from the country", he said.
Top mufti reiterated necessity of unity calling solidarity of the nation an efficient weapon to end the occupation of the Arab country.
A new bill is reportedly passing its final stages as different political factions, including the two major factions, mandating withdrawal of foreign forces, particularly US troops out of the country.
The new bill is passed based on the first and fifth paragraph of the constitution based on necessity of independence and sovereignty of Iraq.
US forces have invaded Iraq back in 2003 under the pretext of confrontation with Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). After back to back defeats and evacuation of the country, they returned to Iraq in 2011 and leading a self-proclaimed international coalition this time under the pretext of so-called campaign against Daesh terrorists.
