Iraq's foreign minister is demanding a very clear timeline for the withdrawal of American troops as part of an agreement allowing the troops to stay past this year.Iraq's leaders have become more confident in their ability to provide security, but at least 15 people, including a U.S. soldier were killed in attacks on Sunday.

The foreign minister said he expects an agreement on a specific timeline by September, even though President Bush has resisted setting a firm schedule for removing troops.
