An accused Iraqi spy awaiting expulsion says he will fight Australian troops if they join a US-led war on his country.

Helal Ibrahim Aaref, who has been told to leave Australia by Wednesday, told the Herald Sun he would have no option but take up arms.

Mr Aaref, Iraq's fifth highest ranked diplomat in Australia and a former soldier who fought in the bloody Iran-Iraq war, is accused by ASIO of being an intelligence officer with the feared Mukhabarat organisation.

During the week, the US expelled two Iraqi attaches working at the United Nations. The Philippines has also expelled an Iraqi diplomat with suspected links to a terrorist group.
