Biden extends U.S. state of emergency on Iraq


{Political: Euphrates News} US President Joe Biden on Tuesday signed a decree extending the national emergency related to the situation in Iraq.

“There are still obstacles to the orderly reconstruction of Iraq, the restoration and maintenance of peace and security in the country, and the development of political, administrative, and economic institutions in Iraq,” a statement by Biden said in a White House website.
He added that these obstacles “pose an extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of Iraq and the United States of America as well. Therefore, I have determined that it is necessary to continue the national emergency declared under Executive Order 13303 regarding the stability of Iraq.”
Resolution 13303 on Iraq was issued in 2003 under former US President George W. Bush, banning the export of certain private goods, as well as punishing personalities and entities.
