The U.S. has granted Iraq a 45-day sanctions waiver to continue importing Iranian energy — an unusually short extension that gives the Trump administration one more chance to threaten Iraq's economy before President-elect Joe Biden takes office on Jan. 20, 2021.
Outgoing U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo approved the new waiver just before the previous, 60-day waiver was set to expire, according to two people briefed on the issue, who said there have not been any other substantive changes in the terms or the renewal process.
