Section III of the Convention states that it "came to deter all threats against Iraq's sovereignty, security and territorial integrity through the development of defense and security arrangements". The agreement also obligates the parties to cooperate in the fields of security and defense in a manner that preserves Iraq's sovereignty over its land, water and airspace.

Under the agreement, "the two sides will continue to develop their close cooperation relations with regard to defense and security arrangements, without prejudice to Iraq's sovereignty over its territory, water and airspace." The agreement also states that "such cooperation shall be carried out in the areas of security and defense in accordance with the agreement between the United States and the Republic of Iraq on the withdrawal of the United States forces from Iraq and the organization of their activities during their temporary presence therein." Under section XI, under the heading "Final Provisions", the Convention sets out mechanisms for amending or abolishing the Convention.

According to its text published on the website of the Secretariat of the Council of Ministers, "this Agreement shall remain in force unless either party gives written notice to the other party of its intention to terminate this Agreement." Termination shall take effect one year after the date of such notification. It also states that "this agreement may be amended with the agreement of both parties in writing and in accordance with the constitutional procedures in force in both countries."

But the former deputy, Nadeem al-Jabri, a specialist in international relations who was a member of the Iraqi constitution writing committee in 2005, considered that "the Strategic Framework Agreement remains binding on Iraq, although it has not benefited from it."

He pointed out that "the abolition of the agreement is very difficult at the present time," pointing out that "even opponents of the Convention are well aware of the weight and strength of Americans in Iraq and the region," stressing that "the thought of cancellation by one of the parties, whether Iraq or America, requires written notice Previously canceled. " 

He explained that "the amendment of the agreement must be satisfied by the parties," noting that "the statements of some Iraqi MPs on the cancellation or amendment is worthless, unless accompanied by constitutional and legal procedures, in accordance with the contexts applicable in international agreements." 

He pointed out that "the abolition of the Convention in the event that it has already, it has significant political and financial implications for Iraq, as it is a legal paper can be waved by Baghdad in the event of any political or economic pressure." LINK
