Baghdad, The head of the State of Law Coalition, Nuri al-Maliki, confirmed: America is using the dollar as a weapon and it is monitoring the situation in Iraq.
Al-Maliki said in a televised statement: The concern about the dollar…is justified…expressing the fear that we will reach a stage of deterioration of the Iraqi currency because of the lack of control over the movement of the dollar.
He added: There are irregularities in some Iraqi merchants’ transfers, and this affects the Iraqi stock of dollars, and the current crisis has a political aspect, and there are those who lurk for the government and try to destabilize it by using dollar paper.
Al-Maliki said: The central bank is required to control the movement of the dollar and spare Iraq a real crisis, and there is no solution to the dollar crisis except by controlling the dollar and understanding with the American side.
He continued: Some local and international parties did not like the formation of the current government and the results of its work, and the dollar crisis lies deep in remittances, and there is some political intent in the dollar crisis, although it is a realistic problem .
Al-Maliki explained” I had a prior and clear objection to the devaluation of the Iraqi dinar, and I warned the concerned authorities of the repercussions of devaluing the dinar, but they did not remedy the crisis.
He stressed: The government is able to control the dollar crisis, but there are no solutions yet.
Al-Maliki indicated that the survival of foreign forces is not a problem of the framework alone, but rather a political and national problem.
He stated: The presence of foreign advisory and training forces that benefit Iraq is something agreed upon, and the presence of foreign combat military forces is a very dangerous matter.
Al-Maliki said: The government must be subject to evaluation after the end of the first 100 days, and the coordination framework is the one who formed this government and is the one who bears its responsibility.
