FACTBOX-Foreign military forces in Iraq

Dec 17 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said on Wednesday British troops would leave Iraq in 2009.

His fourth trip to Iraq as prime minister came a day after the Iraqi cabinet drafted a law covering the temporary presence in Iraq of troops from Britain, Australia, Romania, Estonia, El Salvador and NATO, once a U.N. mandate expires next year.

The law must be ratified by parliament.

Bosnia also withdrew its troops this week and the Albanian and Moldovan forces will end their deployments on Thursday.

Here is a table of the remaining coalition forces in Iraq.

United States 143,000

Britain 4,100

Romania 600

Australia 300

El Salvador 200

Bulgaria 155

Denmark 55

Lithuania 53

Estonia 38
