Washington pledges to Al-Kazemi except for Iraq 120 days to import Iranian gas[Baghdad-Wayne]
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed that Washington will give Iraq a 120-day exception to continue importing electricity from Iran to help the new government.
In support of Pompeo and the new Iraqi prime minister, Mustafa al-Kazemi, in support of the new government, the United States will press ahead with a 120-day exception to import electricity as an expression of our desire to help create the conditions for success, ”the State Department said in a statement I followed [in].
Washington has repeatedly extended the waiver that allows Baghdad to use the necessary Iranian energy supplies for its electricity grid for 90 or 120 days. But it extended the waiver last month for only 30 days while Baghdad was having trouble forming a new government.
The American exemption allowed Iraq to continue importing about 1,400 megawatts of electricity and 28 million cubic meters (988 million cubic feet) of gas from Iran.
