Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki on Monday said Washington and Baghdad have agreed that there will be no foreign forces in the war-torn country after 2011.

"There is an agreement between the two sides that there will be no foreign soldiers in Iraq after 2011," Maliki said in a statement issued by his office.

Washington and Baghdad have for months been negotiating a controversial military security pact to decide the future of US-led foreign troops in Iraq once a UN mandate expires in December.
