Iran's Khamenei Advises Iraq To Oust US Troops

Iran’s top leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei urged Iraq on Saturday to demand U.S. troops leave as soon as possible.

Khamenei's remarks came during a visit by Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi that showed off Tehran’s strong influence in Baghdad despite U.S. pressure.

Iran and the United States have been competing for clout in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003 that toppled dictator Saddam Hussein.
