Member of the House of Representatives, Jassim Al-Moussawi, confirmed today, Sunday, that there are many solutions to get rid of the United States’ control over Iraqi oil sales funds, adding that moving towards this decision requires bearing the burdens and consequences that Washington may issue against the country.

Al-Moussawi said, in an interview with the Maalouma Agency, that “obtaining financial independence requires the support of political forces from all segments of society to proceed with the implementation of this decision,” noting that “it is not possible to build a free and strong economy without moving towards achieving financial independence away from Washington.” “.

He continued, “The general situation and current developments do not allow the continuation of hegemony and the mortgaging of Iraq’s money and economy to the decisions of the United States of America,” noting that “Washington is suffering from a decline in its economy to great degrees recently.”

Al-Moussawi explains: “There are many solutions to get rid of the United States’ control over the money sold by Iraqi oil,” pointing out that “America suffers from all the issues, and this is what will make it negotiate with Iraq regarding the issue of ending the deposit of funds in the Federal Bank instead of directly with the Iraqi banks.”

The leader of the Al-Fatah Alliance, Ali Hussein, had confirmed in a statement to the “Al-Ma’louma” agency, “Changing the policy of the Ministry of Oil by sending money to the Central Bank of Iraq instead of sending it to the Federal Bank will spare the country from continuous pressures from the Washington administration.”
