NZ soldiers to stay in Iraq for at least another year

From Morning Report, 6:39 am on 13 December 2017

New Zealand is being urged to pressure Iraq into political reform in return for training its government security forces, to help ensure the victory Iraq has declared against Islamic State will hold. Iraq announced this week it had has defeated ISIS after a bloody, three year war. However, that won't affect New Zealand's joint training mission in Taji, which will be in place for at least another year.
