ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) ' Iraq President Jalal Talabani has completed medical care in Minnesota.
Mayo Clinic spokesman Bryan Anderson says Talabani had "routine medical appointments" at the clinic in Rochester this week.
It's not Talabani's first visit to the Mayo Clinic. The Post-Bulletin (http://bit.ly/w1SAyY ) says Talabani was last in Rochester for a checkup in May 2011. He also had heart surgery at the clinic in August 2008.
Mayo spokeswoman Kelley Luckstein (LUK'-styn) says Talabani left the clinic Wednesday. He is scheduled to host an Arab League Summit March 29.
