On Saturday, a member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Moeen Al-Kadhimi, accused the United States of America of putting pressure on the Central Bank of Iraq by preventing the Federal Bank from accessing the funds.
Al-Kadhimi said in an interview with the Maalouma Agency, that “American dominance over the work of the Central Bank must be consistent with the vision of the Federal Reserve and the American Treasury.”
He added, “There are efforts being made by the Central Bank of Iraq to reach merchants’ remittances throughout the world.”
Al-Kadhimi pointed out that “remittances issued by the Central Bank of Iraq to merchants to import goods continue despite American pressure.”
Member of Parliamentary Finance, Mustafa Sanad, had previously confirmed that America is leading colonialism and international blackmail against Iraq by causing an increase in the dollar exchange rate, criticizing the silence of the political blocs regarding this.
