CNN. Broadcasting The Reporting Of A Report ! 27-04-2020 02:43 PM A US report is likely to force Iraq "economically fragile" to replace all of its imports from Iran Baghdad / news A report published by the American Stratfor website announced today, Monday, that Iraq will be forced to replace all its imports from Iran over the next three years, especially after allowing it to import gas for electricity for a single month. The report said, "The constant threat of US sanctions threatens to further destabilize the fragile Iraqi economy, which is facing its deep conflicts due to Corona and the decline in oil prices." The pressure recently is by shortening the period of exemption from the last sanctions to only 30 days before they start imposing sanctions on Iraq's imports of Iranian natural gas. "The goal is likely to be to compel Iraq to replace all of its imports from Iran over the next three years, especially given that Iraq’s consumption of Iranian gas imports has actually increased from 24% to 31% between 2018 and 2019," the report added. He pointed out that "against the backdrop of the spread of the Corona pandemic, the growing restrictions imposed by Washington to rid Iraq of Iranian influence only contribute to further dumping the country's economy and government in chaos. However, reducing this consumption significantly will require huge international investment, In addition to increasing Iraq’s acquisition of natural gas to improve the economy and benefit from its domestic production. "Although Corona dealt a severe blow to the Iraqi economy, concerns about containing the disease outbreak in the country are giving Baghdad a truce from the recent wave of anti-government protests, and this is explained by the fact that more people remain in their homes for fear of infection or spreading the infection, where many fewer came out From the Iraqis to the streets in recent weeks to express their complaints about Baghdad, but after the immediate health crisis begins to fade, and with the acute shortage of water and electricity in Iraq again during the summer, the demonstrations are likely to return again. " "If the United States intensifies its bombing campaign against Iranian-backed armed factions, then it may risk further protests in Iraq by fueling the anger of Iraqis who are tired of falling between the exchange of fire between the United States and Iran's proxy arms," he said. link
