    Barack Obama, the president of the United States, has tried to calm fears that the final pullout of troops from Iraq at the end of December 2011 will cause a dangerous power vacuum.

    In a joint press conference in Washington, Obama promised Nouri al Maliki, the Iraqi Prime Minister, that the United States would be a strong and enduring partner - and warned other nations not to interfere.
