WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama welcomed Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Maliki to the White House on Monday, showcasing the end of the American war in Iraq as he campaigns for reelection next year.

Sitting side by side in the Oval Office, the two leaders posed briefly for cameras but did not make statements. They will hold a news conference together later in the morning.

Fulfilling a pledge to Americans weary of the nearly nine year old war, Obama is pulling nearly all US troops out of Iraq by Dec. 31, after a deal to keep thousands of US trainers on the ground fell apart over the issue of immunity.
