President Barack Obama should reconsider his choice of veteran diplomat Christopher Hill as US ambassador to Iraq because he lacks Middle East and counter-terrorism experience, two US senators said Thursday.

Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham said in a joint statement that they have "real concerns" about Obama's decision to nominate Hill, best known for his North Korea nuclear work, as chief envoy to Baghdad.

"The next ambassador should have experience in the Middle East and in working closely with the US military in counteinsurgency or counterterrorism operations. Mr Hill has neither," they said.
