Iraqi government spokesman Bassem al-Awadi said on Sunday that the results of the Iraqi delegation’s negotiations with the US administration in Washington resulted in many agreements, some of which relate to the economy, “and their effects will be tangible in the near future.”

Al-Awadi told (Baghdad today), that “the results of the dialogues of the Iraqi negotiating delegation in the United States of America were very positive and we reached many solutions and agreements with American parties such as the Federal Bank, the Treasury, the Foreign Affairs and others.”

“The effects of these dialogue and agreements will be tangible in the near future, especially with regard to the dollar and exchange rate crisis,” he added.

“There is a new mechanism that will contribute to the stability of the exchange rate in the markets in the coming days, and at the official rate,” he explained.

The Iraqi delegation headed by Foreign Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Fuad Hussein held negotiations with the US administration on the relationship between the two countries in accordance with the strategic framework agreement signed between them previously.

The negotiations dealt with issues of economy, energy, security, education and other files,

Yesterday, the US Middle East Institute reported that the administration of US President Joe Biden pressured the Iraqi delegation “to push Baghdad to redirect the Iraqi energy sector away from Iran, and to deal with accusations that its banking sector is helping the Iranian regime by evade Western sanctions.”

The institute added in a report translated by (Baghdad today), that “the Iraqi government is in a difficult situation economically and politically, as it faces a reaction at home due to the sharp decline in the value of the dinar in light of increasing restrictions by the US Federal Reserve, on dollar withdrawals from the Central Bank of Iraq.”

The U.S. government’s Peace Institute called the negotiations “unprecedented and did not involve confusion or side calls to remove foreign forces from Iraq.”الحكومة-لـ(بغداد-اليوم)-اتفقنا-مع-واشنطن-بشأن-الدولار-والنتائج-ستظهر-في-الأسواق.html
