BAGHDAD - Iraq's foreign affairs committee on Sunday said the US travel curbs imposed on Iraqis were "unfair," and asked the government in Baghdad to "reciprocate" to the American decision.

The committee made its call after a meeting in Baghdad."We ask the Iraqi government to reciprocate to the decision taken by the US administration," said the committee in a statement read to Reuters by one its members, Hassan Shwerid.

"Iraq is in the front line of the war of terrorism (..) and it is unfair that the Iraqis are treated in this way."
