At a glance: NZ's Iraq deployment
Prime Minister John Key has announced New Zealand troops will stay in Iraq until November 2018. This is despite Mr Key's initial insistence, when the deployment was announced in February last year, that they wouldn't stay for more than two years. The joint training mission is New Zealand's biggest contribution to the coalition fight against Islamic State.
