Iraqi PM Cancels Iran Visit

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has cancelled a visit to Iran, his press office said on Sunday. Abadi will still go ahead with a planned visit to Turkey on Tuesday but has scrapped the Iran leg of the trip “because of his busy schedule”, his office was cited as saying by AFP. An Iraqi official had said on Saturday that Abadi would visit both neighboring Turkey and Iran to discuss economic issues. The premier said last Tuesday that Iraq, which relies on neighboring Iran as a source of cheap imports, would reluctantly comply with US sanctions against Tehran, which took effect on Aug. 6. “We don’t support the sanctions because they are a strategic error, but we will comply with them,” said Abadi, whose country is an ally of both Tehran and Washington. The American sanctions were reimposed after US President Donald Trump withdrew from a landmark 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers in May.
