Iraq bargains for the presence of US forces: to stay in exchange for exemption from Iranian sanctions 368





Iraqi officials have revealed a move to settle the issue of removing  US forces from Iraq and postponing it in exchange for an extension of Iraq's exemption from sanctions against Iran.



Halabousi's visit to Washington not only represents the speaker of theparliament , but also represents the government," said the speaker of the Iraqi parliament, Mohamed Halboussi, who has been in talks with US officials for several days . , That "the opinion of Halbusi is identical to the opinion of the Presidents of the Republic and the government, on the survival of US forces in Iraq, and they believe that the current situation is not appropriate to remove them." 
The source said that "Halabousi is currently discussing this file in  Washington with US officials, to reach a consensus on it, and to disrupt the passage of the law to remove US forces from Iraq, which the political parties intend to offer to vote," noting that "Halabosi seeks in exchange for this file to obtain Iraq on A new extension of Iraq's exemption from sanctions imposed on Iran, and for a period of not less than three years. "
He stressed that "dialogues between Halbusi and US officials are still continuing in this regard," likely to "agree with US officials on the two issues, and that Iraq in any case will not announce consensus on the US forces, fearing the exploitation of this from some political parties." 
Halabousi has been in Washington for several days on an official visit, during which he held several meetings, and stressed during his visit to the United States Institute of Peace, that "we hope to get an exemption from Washington on sanctions on Iran, so that Iraq can stand on its feet economically." 
"Iraq can not stop importing electricity from Iran three years ago," he said. 
In the meantime, the President of the Republic Barham Salih, in a press interview, that "the presence of American soldiers in Iraq is for a specific task, which is to enable Iraqi forces in the war against Daqash, and nothing else," stressing "
The coalition of "Sawsan" led by Moqtada al-Sadr, and "conquest" led by Hadi al-Amiri, one of the most demanding blocs pass the law on the removal of US forces from Iraq, and the two alliances have a numerical majority to pass the law in parliament, without the need for other blocks, but they did not move in this direction in practice. 
The MP for the Alliance of "reform", Ali Ajayawi, in a press statement, "There are American pressure exerted on some political blocs not to pass the law to remove US forces in parliament," noting that "Parliament is waiting to unify the government's position to begin passing the law, Country ".

[rtl]BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraqi President Mohammad al-Halbousi called on the US administration to extend its  exemption from US sanctions on Iran because Baghdad can not stop  importing electricity from Iran three years ago.

"We hope to extend this exemption until Iraq can stand on its own economically," Halaboussi said during a visit to the United States Institute of Peace in Washington. 

The Iraqi official in Washington met a number of American officials, led by Vice President Mike Bens. 

According to Halbusi, Iraq imports 30% of its energy needs, and it needs almost three years to achieve self-sufficiency in the generation of electricity. 

"After these three years, we may see an economically independent Iraq, and we do not need to import electricity from another country. Maybe we can solve this problem within three years."

Halabousi later called on the United States to study the steps it is taking and its consequences. "Any hasty and reckless move towards adopting policies and actions against countries in this region will have a negative impact on the region," he said. 

Last week, the United States extended a three-month exemption to Iraq in December, allowing it to import from Iran reliable electricity, despite US sanctions against Tehran.

Washington re-imposed sanctions on Iran's energy sector in November after it pulled out of a nuclear deal signed in 2015 between the superpowers and Tehran, but Washington exempted Baghdad from the sanctions for three months, later extended for a similar period, so that Iraq can continue In importing its electricity and gas needs from Iran to avoid a new popular protest against power outages.  

A power shortage that often leaves homes without electricity for up to 20 hours a day is a key factor behind weeks of major protests in Iraq during the summer. To overcome this shortfall, Iraq imports up to 28 million cubic meters of natural gas from Tehran to its factories and directly buys 1,300 megawatts of Iranian electricity. 

This dependence is uncomfortable for the United States, which sought to curtail Tehran's influence and re-impose sanctions on Iran's financial institutions, shipping lines, the energy sector and oil products. 

The Iraqi Ministry of Electricity announced in February the renewal of the contract to import electricity from Iran for a year, days after the Iraqi government announced its refusal to be part of the system of US sanctions against Iran.

The ministry pointed out that the renewal of the contract to import electricity with the Iranian company Tuanir, came on the basis of discussions held by the Iraqi Minister of Electricity Luay Khatib during his visit to Iran earlier in February.
