Iraqi PM Says He Wants Short-Term Memo

Iraq's prime minister says he wants a short-term memorandum of understanding instead of a formal agreement on the presence of U.S. forces in the country.

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki says the proposed memorandum includes a formula for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.

U.S. President George W. Bush has said he opposes the idea of a specific timetable.
Al-Maliki says his government proposed the memorandum after having difficulty negotiating a formal Status of Forces Agreement keeping U.S. troops in Iraq after a U.N. mandate expires at year's end.

Al-Maliki's comments Monday came in a meeting with several Arab ambassadors to the United Arab Emirates in that country's capital, Abu Dhabi.
