Mustafa AY – TDO – 14.08.2018 On Monday, Iraqi PM Haider al-Abadi made official remarks to clarify whether Iraq will abide by USA’s renewed and deepened sanctions on Iran or not. According to his words, Baghdad will comply with USA’s sanctions by merely banning use of dollar in business transactions. However, he underlined this fact “Iraq will adhere to USA’s sanctions on Iran ‘partly’. It’s not an issue for Iraq to apply all parts of sanctions.” Recently, a top Iraqi official has denied the applicability of White House’s sanctions on Iran in Iraq. However, PM al-Abadi’s current words ensured that Baghdad will abide by USA’s renewed sanctions on Iran, but partly.
