Prime Minister John Howard has made a top-secret visit to Iraq to meet with Australian troops and hold talks with Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari.
Mr Howard landed in Baghdad where he met with Mr Jaafari for half an hour and then travelled to Iraq’s southern Al Muthanna province, where 450 Australian troops are helping train Iraqi security forces and protecting Japanese military engineers working on reconstruction efforts.
