The Minister of Defense, João Gomes Cravinho, visited the Portuguese forces deployed to Iraq as part of Operation Inherent Resolve. The ninth contingent of 30 national forces (plus 4 in the General Staffs) is providing training and education to the Iraqi Security Forces, developing their counter-terrorism capabilities.

In the words of João Gomes Cravinho, the Portuguese forces combine a “natural way of interacting” with “professionalism when providing the training”, pointing out that the objective is for “Iraqi security forces to take care of the security of their own country”. This is an “absolutely fundamental step” to face the “threat of terrorism, particularly Daesh”.
