Saturday, June 11, 2011 11:29 GMT 
Iraq’s Government announced on Friday that it has  notified the US Embassy in Baghdad about the necessity for visiting US  congressmen to leave the country following the stands they voiced on  Friday. Iraq has reservations over the statements of the visiting US congressmen, a source from Iraq’s Foreign Ministry said. “Iraq’s Government has notified the US Embassy in Baghdad about the  necessity for visiting US congressmen to leave the country for they are  not welcome anymore”, State Minister and Cabinet spokesman Ali Dabbagh  told Alsumarianews without giving any further details. Six US congressmen held on Friday a press conference at the US  Embassy in Baghdad calling for Iraq to repay a portion of the  “mega-dollars” that Washington has spent since the overthrow of Saddam  Hussein in 2003. "We were hoping that there would be a consideration of a payback  because the United States right now is in close to a very serious  economic crisis and we could certainly use some people to care about our  situation as we have cared about theirs", Republican representative  Dana Rohrabacher told journalists at the US embassy in Baghdad.  …A senior official at Iraq’s Foreign Ministry told Alsumarianews that  the ministry did not issue an order to expel the US congressmen. The  order was issued from the ministerial council without passing by the  Ministry. “The statements of the US Congressmen in Baghdad spurred the  reservations of Iraqis”, the official speaking on condition of anonymity  said noting however that there was no need to expel them.   Iraq has never expelled any diplomat or foreign politician from the country on account of its stands towards Iraq.  This development comes along US pressures on Iraq to extend the  presence of US Forces in Iraq beyond the December 31 deadline.
