Iran reveals the value of its frozen funds in Iraq Empty Central Bank of Iraq: Returning Iranian funds to Iraq "is not possible"

Baghdad - Iraq today:

The director of the media office of the Central Bank of Iraq, Yasir Jabbar Aflouk, said that officials in the Iranian banking sector had visited Iraq, accompanied by a representative from the Iranian government, and had asked Iraq to transfer Iranian funds in Iraq into the Iraqi dinar and return them to Iran, but officials of the Iraqi Central Bank said explicitly that The money will not enter Iran directly. 

The Iraqi official’s statements come days after the visit of Abdel Nasser Hemmati, head of the Iranian Central Bank, to Iraq and the announcement of the imminent return of nearly $ 5 billion of Iranian funds frozen in Iraq against the backdrop of US sanctions imposed on the Iranian banking sector.

Ayer Jabbar Aflouk added that, before the US sanctions were imposed on it, Iran used to take the money it obtained from trade with Iraq in the form of dollars and take it from Iraqi banks.

It seems that the recent US sanctions have closed the limited financial outlets that existed between Iran and Iraq, which further exacerbates the economic situation of Iran, as Tehran viewed Baghdad at this stage as the lung it breathed from and the only way to obtain foreign exchange.

The Iranian government and the Central Bank have been trying for some time to recover Iran's frozen funds in Iraq, and it has tried to do so through Iraqi government banks, as well as non-governmental banks, and even with the help of Iranian banks in Iraq, but the director of the media office of the Central Bank of Iraq, Yasir Jabbar Aflouk, said in this context that This is not possible.

The Iraqi official emphasized that the Iraqi Trade Bank (TBI) is the only institution that can make a decision regarding Iranian funds in Iraq, however, this bank should also seek permission from the central bank that has restricted its activity with Tehran due to US sanctions.
