The US has asked Iran to return a surveillance drone downed earlier this month, Barack Obama disclosed on Monday.
Obama was asked about the missing drone during a joint press conference with the Iraqi president Nouri al-Maliki to mark the withdrawal of troops from Iraq by the end of the month.
“We have asked for it back. We’ll see how the Iranians respond,” Obama said but ended with a smirk, an acknowledgement that Iranian co-operation was highly unlikely.
