Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki is expected to fly to London for health checks on Sunday, the second time in two months he has visited the British capital for medical tests, officials in his office said.
Maliki flew to London on Dec. 29 for unspecified tests and the latest visit was to complete these, his media adviser, Yasin Majid, told Reuters.
He declined to give details on the tests but said the prime minister, who is in his late 50s, was fine.
"Prime Minister Maliki will travel to London after agreeing with the doctors during his first visit that he would return to complete the health checks," Majid said.
"I assure you that the prime minister is fine and the visit is just to complete the check-ups."
Maliki assured Iraqis when he returned to Baghdad after the first tests that he was in good health. An official in Maliki's office said at the time the Iraqi prime minister had been suffering from mild exhaustion.
