Poland's Prime Minister Donald Tusk praised Polish soldiers for the way they fulfilled their mission in Iraq, local media reported on Wednesday.

Tusk and Defense Minister Bogdan Klich paid a visit to Iraq on Wednesday to meet with Polish soldiers before Christmas, according to Polish news agency PAP.

The prime minister told a press conference in the Polish base in Divanijah that Poland was completing its mission in Iraq in 2008 "being fully convinced that Polish soldiers did more than planned."

Poland's new prime minister, whose government was installed in mid-November, said earlier this week that the government plans to withdraw all of its 900 troops stationed in Iraq by Oct. 31 of next year.

Poland dispatched its troops to Iraq in 2003 to support a U.S.-led military campaign.
