Obama didn't raise his troop plan with Iraqi PM Maliki
U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama did not raise his plan to withdraw troops from Iraq within 16 months in his talks on Monday with Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, the Iraqi government's spokesman said.

"This issue, we do not discuss ... ," spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh told reporters when asked if Obama had brought up the 16-month timeframe.

"Obama did not speak about anything which concerns the Iraqi government because he does not have any official (government) capacity."
