Transitioning the Mission

Mudville-Gazette, April 18, 2007 - Posted by Greyhawk,
On April 18, 2007, Iraqi authorities assumed responsibility for maintaining the security of Maysan Province in southeastern Iraq. The transfer, known as Provincial Iraqi Control, was directed by the Iraqi Ministerial Committee on National Security.

Maysan is the fourth (of eighteen) Iraqi provinces where security control is now in the hands of Iraqis, with Coalition forces standing ready to provide assistance if needed. In a ceremony on July 13, 2006, Muthanna province was the first to transfer. The second province to transition was Dhi Qar in September, followed by Najaf in December.

In the comments section, soldiersdad2 added, “Maysan... will be followed by the three Kurdistan provinces, a month from now,” Mowaffaq al-Rubaie quoted Maliki as saying, “...after that Kerbala and Wasit [provinces]. Then it will be province by province until we achieve [this transfer] before the end of the year.”
