WARSAW, Poland - Poland is not considering a troop pullout from Iraq (news - web sites), despite the outgoing prime minister's comments on the
subject, the government spokesman said on Wednesday.
"Poland will be in Iraq as long as it necessary, until the situation there is stabilized," spokesman Marcin Kaszuba told The Associated Press.
"Poland has not and is not considering a troop withdrawal."
Earlier, the Polish news agency PAP quoted Prime Minister Leszek Miller, who leaves office early next month, as saying Poland "cannot turn a blind
eye" to the Spanish pullout. The comments suggested Warsaw might be rethinking its Iraq mission.
