Iran's supreme leader on Saturday said the US should withdraw from Iraq more quickly than planned because any delay is harmful to the country. Iranian state television quoted Ayatollah Ali Khamenei telling visiting Iraqi President Jalal Talabani on Saturday that US plans for a "long stay" in Iraq are detrimental to the Iraqi people. US President Barack Obama said Friday that the US will pull all combat troops out of Iraq by August 2010 and plans to withdraw all remaining soldiers by the end of the following year.
