Obama Meets with Iraqi Prime Minister as War Draws to a Close

White House Photo by Pete Souza(WASHINGTON) -- With U.S. troops set to withdraw from Iraq at the end of the month, President Obama will meet with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki at the White House on Monday to discuss the end of the war.

Obama and Maliki will hold bilateral meetings in the Oval Office in the morning before facing the media at a joint news conference at the White House.  The president and Maliki will later participate in a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery.

The White House will likely use Maliki’s visit to highlight the president’s keeping his campaign promise to end the war responsibly and promote Obama’s foreign policy successes.
