Economist: The US embassy is closed ... suspension of international financial institutions granting to Iraq

Baghdad / NINA / The advisor at the Ministry of Finance, an economist, Hazem Hadi, affirmed that: The closure of the US embassy prevents international financial institutions from continuing to grant aid to Iraq.

He told the Iraqi National News Agency ( NINA ) that: The United States is the one that protects Iraq's funds abroad and oil imports from implementing court decisions on compensation for the private sector account.

Hadi added that: The United States is the pressure on the international financial institutions to provide aid to Iraq.

And he indicated that the closure of the embassy will have negative international effects, and that it does not praise its consequences, as it gives its hand to destroy the military installations that it believes are responsible for hitting it.

Today, Saturday, the Iraqi Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that it did not receive requests to move any embassy outside the capital, Baghdad, noting that there is coordination between the government and the ministry regarding the initial US decision.

"Iraq has not received anything official about closing embassies and diplomatic missions, or moving them outside Baghdad," said the ministry’s spokesman, Ahmed Al-Sahaf.

Adding, "The State Department received Washington's initial decision to move the embassy to Erbil, which called on the Iraqi government and Foreign Minister Fuad Hussein to move to dialogue with Washington and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, on the initial decision."

Al-Sahhaf added, "Iraq has felt that there is a clear understanding from European countries and the United States of the challenges facing the current government."

Regarding the results of the investigation about the targeting of embassies, Al-Sahhaf said, "Until this hour, the investigation committee has not announced the full results, regarding the targeting of embassies and missions, but the security and intelligence effort, and government coordination under the supervision of Al-Kazemi and the Minister of Foreign Affairs is continuing.

Al-Kazemi explained, "There are those who claim to be Iraqis and are working to turn the land of Iraq into an arena for conflict, and the Islamic Republic of Iran and the United States of America have announced that they do not want Iraq to be an arena for conflict.الخارجية-العراقية-تلقينا-قرار-واشنطن/

This is Peter Zheihan recently talking about American intentions in the Middle East. This is not a bluff. America is leaving, repositioning. Embassy moved? I suspect if American doesn't get what it wants, chopping up Iraq, freeing up Kurdistan may be in the cards. Come together boys and girls.
