New Zealand forces will stay in Iraq until June next year.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern made the announcement today.
New Zealand is currently in a joint training mission with Australia. This started in 2015 and has trained more than 30,000 members of the Iraqi security forces.
About 143 New Zealand Defence Force personnel are currently in Iraq but that will be reduced to 121 from November.
Ms Ardern said the deployment would be reviewed again in early 2019, to assess New Zealand’s options to contribute to stability in Iraq beyond next June.
