London (AP) The BBC reports British Cabinet Ministers will announce within months when a final pullout from Iraq will take place, as long as a lull in violence holds.

Britain's Defense Ministry stresses that no decision is imminent, but that a withdrawal plan will be outlined by the end of the year.

The situation will be discussed when prime Minister Gordon Brown meets with President Bush on Sunday. But Brown's spokesman also reiterated there are no plans to announce Britain's exit from Iraq.

Britain has 4,000 troops remaining in Iraq at a base on the outskirts of the southern city of Basra.
