SULAIMANI — Denmark will send its military personnel back to the Iraqi al-Asad base on March 1, after last month temporarily moving some of them to Kuwait due to security concerns, the Danish Defense Minister Trine Bramsen said on Monday (February 17).

Denmark had around 130 personnel stationed at the Al-Asad base as part of the international coalition fighting Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.
