The leader of the National Wisdom Movement, Ammar al-Hakim, said on Wednesday that it was dangerous for Iraq not to comply with economic sanctions imposed by the United States on Iran, calling on Washington to reconsider these sanctions.
“We are aware of the seriousness of non-compliance with the sanctions imposed by the United States on Iran for economic-minded countries such as Iraq,” Hakim said in his Eid sermon in his office in central Baghdad.
“We demand the United States of America to reconsider the option of imposing sanctions and embargo on the Iranian people and excluding Iraq from them,” he said.
“We say it frankly and without fear of anyone, we will not accept the imposition of unjust economic sanctions on the people, and we will not allow the interests of our country to be jeopardized,” Hakim said.
