United States Sofa Agreements

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. Perhaps most importantly, the agreements that have been reached require the withdrawal of US forces from Iraq by December 31, 2011. The following sections provide a historical overview of the inclusion of a SOFA in comprehensive bilateral security agreements concluded by the United States with Afghanistan, Germany, Japan, South Korea and the Philippines. Agreements may include a standalone sofa or other chords, including protective measures that are usually related to a sofa. In the 1950s, almost 40 years before the 1991 Persian Gulf War, the United States entered into a series of agreements with Iraq, including (1) a military aid agreement (T.I.A.S. 3108). Convention of April 21, 1954; (2) an agreement on the provision of military equipment and equipment provided under the Military Assistance Agreement (T.I.A.S. 3289). Agreement of July 25, 1955); and (3) an economic aid agreement (T.I.A.S.

3835. agreement of 18 and 22 May 1957). 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. Exchange of notes in Baghdad, May 30 and July 7, 1959. It came into force on July 21, 1959). The United States is a party to multilateral and bilateral agreements that deal with the status of U.S. forces while they are in a foreign country. These agreements, commonly referred to as the “status of Forces Agreements,” generally create the framework within which U.S.

military personnel operate in a foreign country.1 The United States provides rights and privileges for insured persons while in foreign jurisdiction and deals with how domestic foreign jurisdiction laws are applied in the United States.2 SOFS may contain many provisions. but the most common question is which country can exercise criminal jurisdiction over U.S. personnel. The United States has agreements in which it retains the exclusive jurisdiction of its staff, but the agreement more often requires joint jurisdiction with the host country.
