On November 17, 2008, the U.S. Ambassador to Iraq signed Ryan Crocker and the Iraqi Foreign Minister, Hoshyar Zebari, after months of negotiations, two documents: (1) the Strategic Framework Agreement for a Friendship and Cooperation Relationship between the United States and the Republic of Iraq (Strategic Framework Agreement) and (2) the agreement between the United States of America and the Republic of Iraq on the withdrawal of the United States armed forces from Iraq and the organization of their activities during their temporary presence. 119 In a way, the agreements reached are different from the long-term security agreement originally provided for in the Declaration of Principles.

However, in response to the revolution of 14 July 1958 and the subsequent modification of the Iraqi government, the United States agreed to terminate the aforementioned agreements (10 U.S.T.1415; T.I.A.S. 4289; 357 U.N.T.S. 153.

Since June 2007, 26 countries, including the United States, have either ratified the agreement or joined it by joining NATO.9 In addition, 24 other countries are subject to NATO`s SOFA by participating in the NATO Partnership for Peace (PfP) programme. 11 The various pfP countries are committed to meeting NATO SOFA12 conditions through NATO SOFA and NATO, and the United States has a common couch with about 58 countries.
Secretary of State Rice and Secretary of State Gates said the United States has agreements in more than 115 countries around the world.13 NATO SOFA and NATO PFP SOFA account for about half of the SOFAs to which the United States belonged. In 1993, the countries signed a SOFA.104 The agreement was extended on 19 September 1994; April 28, 1995; November 29, December 1 and December 8, 1995. The countries reached an agreement in 1998 on the treatment of U.S. forces that visited the Philippines.105 This agreement was amended on April 11 and 12, 2006.
