ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) — Iraq President Jalal Talabani is in Minnesota for medical care.

Mayo Clinic spokesman Bryan Anderson says Talabani has "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.

Talabani could be leaving the clinic as early as Thursday. He is scheduled to host an Arab League Summit March 29.
