Will America include Nuri al-Maliki on the list of sanctions?
The Iraqi media have asked a question to the US ambassador in Iraq, Matthew Toler, about the arrival of information indicating the intention of the United States to include former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki in the list of possible sanctions coming.
Toller said during a meeting with a number of journalists at the US embassy in central Baghdad that "the US administration used the powers to impose sanctions several times before use in Iraq," asserting that "the four figures that have been sanctioned, carried out acts that weaken the role of Iraq."
"We do not apologize for imposing sanctions and what we have done supports Iraq's sovereignty, as their actions have affected the stability of the country," he said.
Toller declined to comment when asked about the inclusion of former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki in a new list of sanctions intended to be issued.
"It is impossible to confirm or deny this because it is related to law enforcement," said Toller. "Washington has no authority to carry out any activity except in coordination with the Iraqi government."
