an unannounced one-day visit to Iraq Monday to visit his country's
peacekeeepers, his office said.
The visit comes amid the pullout of the remaining 867 Ukrainian
troops from Iraq where they served as a part of the U.S.-led coalition,
under Polish command in southern and central Iraq. All are due home by Dec.
30, making the former Soviet nation the latest country to wind down its
presence in the U.S.-led coalition.
