US general: British did a great job - Mirror

British troops have done a "phenomenal job" in Iraq, a US Army general.

Brigadier General Jeff Smith is part of the senior command team that will take over from British control of coalition forces in Basra in southern Iraq this week.

He said yesterday: "The Brits can be proud of what they have achieved here."

Brig Gen Smith spoke of a "true optimism" among the people of Iraq and said the US military in Basra would continue the successful work British troops have done with Iraqi security forces.
He said: "The UK forces have done a phenomenal job.

We are going to continue that very important partnership."
