ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) – Iraqi President Jalal Talabani is in Minnesota for medical care, according to the Rochester Post-Bulletin.

The Mayo Clinic confirmed that Talabani is in Rochester this week. Clinic spokesman Bryan Anderson said the president has “routine medical appointments.”

It’s not the first visit to the Mayo Clinic for Talabani. The Post-Bulletin reports Talabani was last in Rochester for a checkup in May of last year. He also had heart surgery at the clinic in August 2008.

Talabani could be leaving the clinic as early as Thursday.
