BAGHDAD (Reuters) - 
The United States has imposed sanctions on six individuals and three entities for their involvement in transporting oil shipments to Syria, the US Treasury Department said Tuesday. 
The Treasury Department said in a statement that the list of targets of the network includes Syrian citizen Mohammed Amer Shweiki and his company 'Global Vision Group' based in Russia, which also funded the Iranian Quds Force and the militia of Hezbollah and Hamas. 
The ministry pointed out that the other targets include Syrian citizen Haji Abdel Nasser, Lebanese citizen Mohammed Qasim al-Bazal, Russian citizen Andrey Dujayev, as well as Iranian citizens Rasul Sajjad and Hussein Yacoubi Miyab. 
Washington says it resorts to punitive measures to isolate Bashar al-Assad's regime as responsible for systematic arrests and killings of large numbers of Syrians as they protest against the political and legal situation.
US officials said Russia had facilitated the delivery of oil from Iran to Syria and that a variety of mechanisms had been used to try to hide shipments and payments related to oil. 
"Today we are moving against a complex scheme used by Iran and Russia to support Bashar al-Assad's regime and to provide funds for malicious Iranian activity," Treasury Secretary Stephen Menuchin said in a statement. 
He said 'officials of the Central Bank of Iran continue to exploit the global financial system'. 
The Treasury Department's inclusion of individuals and entities on the sanctions list effectively isolates them from the global financial system, freezing any assets under US jurisdiction and warning non-US institutions to deal with them.

US special envoy for Syria, James Jeffrey, said Friday that Washington is not seeking to change the leadership and order in Damascus, pointing out that it is the Syrian people who decide who governs, while stressing not to ease the sanctions on Iran in exchange for withdrawal from Syria.

"We believe that the Syrian president is a disgrace to humanity and a war criminal, perhaps the greatest war criminal in today's world and the most cruel, and America will never have good relations with Bashar Assad," Jeffrey said in an interview with Novosti and the Russian daily Kommersant. We are committed to a political process that is achieved in cooperation with the Syrian people and by the Syrian people themselves. " 

"The Syrian people must decide who will govern them and which government they will have." 

"Washington is not seeking any form of regime change, but is aimed at changing the behavior of this regime towards its people in the first place, and then towards its neighbors, the international community."

"The talk here includes both the use of chemical weapons and the practice of torture. The region is threatened by enormous Iranian and Iranian intervention. "He said. 

"There is a long list of what the United States considers unacceptable in the performance of the Syrian government and what should change when real peace and real settlement of disputes with the international community are reached," he said. 

"If the idea of a withdrawal of Iranian troops from Syria is put forward by weakening sanctions against Iran, we will not accept them under any circumstances, because they are different," Geoffrey said. 

He pointed out that the US sanctions against Iran "are not related to Syria, but are the result of Washington's concern about Iran's nuclear file and activities in the region."

He added: "We call on Russia to pressure the Syrian government and Iran to withdraw the forces of Tehran from all Syrian territory under the decision to withdraw all foreign troops except Russia and return to the situation before 2011."

Deputy for Asron: Iraq will not be able to face any US sanctions

BAGHDAD / Al-Masala: The leader of the alliance of Saron Ali Mahdi, the need to keep Iraq from the conflict between the United States of America and Iran, in the interest of the economy of the country .

Mahdi said in a press statement that "Iraq can not face America by virtue of its economic status based on the export of oil by 90 %." He added, "Iraq exports about four million barrels of oil, mostly through the United States and its allies and therefore the Iraqi economy does not bear any sanctions American. "

 He stressed the need to "open diplomatic channels and make further talks to exclude Iraq from those sanctions, in addition to improving the country's relations with its regional environment for economic balance and reduce the potential damage."

On Tuesday, November 20, 2018, Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi confirmed that Iraq would not allow any US dictates to any file, including sanctions against Iran .

" I can say that we have now put Iraq in the right perspective, and under this angle, we said we are not part of the sanctions against Iran," Abdul Mahdi said in a meeting with media, sportsmen and artists .

Report: Iran circumvent sanctions by using Iraq and the United States gate looking for alternatives

Report: Iran circumvents sanctions using the gate of Iraq and America is looking for alternatives

 

 Twilight News    
 
 2 hours ago
 

 

As part of its efforts to close a backdoor through which Tehran can take sanctions, the United States is working to provide alternatives to Iraq to urge it to give up the gas it receives from Iran.

The United States is seeking to hit two birds with one stone. On the one hand, it wants to cut a path through which Iran can circumvent US sanctions and, on the other hand, influence Tehran's influence inside Iraq.

The United States is pressing Iraq to cut its energy ties with Iran, and US companies and their allies in the region are encouraging the development of practical alternatives to cut off trade between Baghdad and Tehran.

Iraq relies on Iran to import natural gas, which generates up to 45 percent of its electricity.

Washington gave Baghdad 45 days, exempt from Iranian sanctions, at a time when it hoped Iraq would seriously move to find alternatives, as expressed by US special envoy to Iran Brian Hawk.

To this end, US energy companies are stepping up their bids for Iraq to meet their energy needs, as a substitute for Iranian gas.

Last week, a US firm offered a proposal to Baghdad to build a floating liquefied natural gas facility. Earlier this year, Iraq signed an agreement with US energy company Orion Ltd. to process natural gas extracted from the Ben- , And the Iraqi Ministry of Energy signed contracts with the company "General Electric" and the US "Siemens" German.

All these attempts collide with the Iraqi parliament's freezing of decisions of the caretaker government, including those related to contracts with international companies, especially contracts to develop electricity production in the country.

Gas for food

Tehran has tried hard to circumvent the second round of US sanctions, as Iranian politicians try to use Iraq as a gateway to ease the sanctions and save their economy from collapse.

The Iranians are taking advantage of their influence on some Iraqi blocs and politicians to pass their plans, and escape the specter of sanctions, which oppresses them, and threatens a revolution in the Iranian street.

Tehran is seeking to push Iraq to demand an agreement that allows it to export gas to Baghdad for food, which could make it exploit this by further circumventing sanctions to save its faltering economy and currency, which lost about 70 percent of its value this year.

Iraqi Dinar May Replace Dollar And Euro In Iran's 2nd Largest Export Market

Amidst continuing talks between Iran and Iraq over how to settle payments for Iraq's natural gas imports from Iran in the face of Washington sanctions, Iranian officials are mulling over Iraq's offer to pay in Iraqi Dinars instead of the dollar or Euro, according to Iranian state media. This follows the September announcement by Iran that it planned to completely ditch the dollar as a currency used by the two countries in the trade transactions. 

Iraq was among countries granted a temporary exemption as energy sanctions on its eastern neighbor and regional Shia ally took effect November 5, and since then Baghdad has pushed to process payments for gas and electricity in its own currency of dinars. Iraq is Iran's second largest export market with a substantial portion of that trade in energy, which cannot cannot easily be structured outside the new sanctions regime.

This is sounds to me like the dinar is going to be on the same level playing field of the dollar and Euro, meaning a dinar value of $1+

 

Go rv

Go $1+

The Iraqi dinar is stronger than the Iranian currency. If Iraq pays Iran at the present value that would mean that they have no intention to revalue or that would be a tremendous transfer of wealth to their Shia neighbor.

Smart money has them adjusting their exchange rate BEFORE Iran gets paid.

I would agree it changes before the transfer! Also this would have to put upward pressure on the Dinar value come out over 1:1 then move up over 3 over time possibly

      Iraq aims to ease US-Iran tensions
      Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi said Baghdad will send teams to Tehran and Washington to calm tensions. (File/AFP) Updated 22 May 2019 ARAB NEWS May 21, 201915:48     Follow @arabnews Iraqi delegations to visit both countries “US and Iranian officials have assured us that they do not want to go to war,” says PM       BAGHDAD: Iraq will send delegations to Tehran and Washington over the next few days in an attempt to ease tensions in the region, Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi said on Tuesday.
      “Iraq has conducted high-level contacts (between the US and Iran), and its vision is very close to the European vision to resolve the crisis in the region,” Abdul Mahdi said.
      “US and Iranian officials have assured us that they do not want to go to war. So we will send delegations to Washington and Tehran.”
      Tensions started to rise between the two countries after the US withdrew from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, otherwise known as the Iran nuclear deal, in May 2018.
      Since then, the US has imposed economic sanctions on Iran. US President Donald Trump warned on Monday that Iran would be met with “great force” if it attacked American interests in the Middle East.
      Iraq has been a battleground for the US and Iran since 2003. Both countries enjoy significant influence in the region.
      Iraqi leaders believe that their country could become the first confrontation zone if war breaks out between the two nations.
      “Iraq is in the stage of transferring messages between Washington and Tehran as we try to defuse the crisis between the two sides,” Abdul Mahdi said.
      “It is our responsibility to defend Iraq and its people, and secure them from the threat of war.”
      During a visit to Baghdad earlier this month, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Abdul Mahdi that targeting any US interests in Iraq will be dealt with militarily.
      A Katyusha rocket was fired on Sunday into Baghdad’s Green Zone, which houses government offices and embassies, including the US Embassy.
      The rocket fire came days after the US evacuated staff from Iraq, citing threats from Iran. It was not clear who was behind the attack, which caused no casualties.
      The attack “embarrassed” the Iraqi government, which has pledged to secure diplomatic missions and protect US interests, senior Iraqi officials told Arab News.
      The Iraqi president, prime minister and speaker of Parliament, as well as heads of political blocs and commanders of armed factions linked to Iran, have held meetings over the past few days.
      “We’re working together to invest our relations with the two parties (the US and Iran) in order to ease the tension and find peaceful solutions,” Ahmad Al-Assadi, head of an Iraqi parliamentary bloc, told Arab News.
      “The outbreak of war between America and Iran will cause great damage to the entire region. Iraq will be the biggest loser because it’s in the heart of the storm.”
      During the meetings, political leaders and representatives of armed factions linked to Iran agreed on a 12-point document that aims “to keep Iraq away from the ongoing struggle between the US and Iran by all possible means.” Al-Assadi said the Iraqi Parliament will vote on the approved document.
      Dozens of paramilitary troops associated with Iran operate in Iraq, and present the biggest challenge for the Iraqi government and political leaders.
      “We agreed that no armed faction is allowed to ignite the war inside Iraq for any reason, and whoever violates this deal will be considered our enemy,” one of the leaders linked to Iran, who participated in the meetings, told Arab News.
      “We don’t want to be blamed for this war, but the situation may change if the US insists on starting this war inside Iraq.”
