  • Based upon the request of Iraqi authorities, it's a non-combat mission founded on partnership and inclusivity as well as on full respect for Iraq's sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity.
  • It develops a self-sustaining Iraqi training capability by training Iraqi trainers on a variety of disciplines, including countering-improvised explosive devices, explosive ordnance disposal, demining, civilian-military planning, military medicine, and vehicle maintenance.
  • In coordination and cooperation with the Global Coalition and the efforts by individual allies and International Organizations, it instructs on countering corruption, Rule of Law, the Law of Armed Conflict, Protection of Civilians, Children and Armed Conflict and Women Peace and Security.
  • It expands NATO's assistance to provide training in military schools and institutions in order to help Iraq build and sustain more effective, transparent and inclusive national security structures and institutions.
  • It supports the Iraqi security ministries in developing an achievable and sustainable military force structure through civilian-military cooperation and engagement.
  • It works on Iraqi Security Sector Reform while coordinating with other international organizations including the United Nations and European Union, ensuring complementarity.
