The U.S. combat mission in Iraq is coming to an end. 

President Biden made it official during a meeting with Iraq's prime minister at the White House. 

He said remaining U.S. forces will be acting primarily in an advisory role and will also be involved in counterterrorism efforts. 

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Monday called it a "change of mission." U.S. troop levels in Iraq have dropped from about 9000 to 2500.
