Iraqi President Jalal Talabani arrived in Germany Thursday for medical treatment after suffering a stroke, the Associated Press reported:
Iraqi lawmaker Mahmoud Othman said Talabani flew to Berlin after a German medical team recommended he be taken abroad for treatment. It was not immediately known what German hospital Talabani would be taken to.
In a statement on its official website, the presidential office said the treatment he underwent in Baghdad "provided the right conditions for the transfer of (Talabani) out of the country for follow-up treatment in Germany." It gave no further details on his condition.
