Biden Administration Extends The Exemption Period Granted To Iraq From Sanctions Against Iran

Baghdad The administration of US President Joe Biden announced the extension of the exemption period granted to Iraq from sanctions related to dealing with Iran, for a new four months.

France-Press quoted an unnamed Iraqi official as saying: This comes in light of Iraq’s turnout for early and imminent parliamentary elections that are scheduled to be held on October 10.

The duration of this exemption is equal to the last exemption granted by the Biden administration in early April, which is the longest period permitted by US law.
