"Abu Mazen" responds to the inclusion of US sanctions
Jubouri said in a statement, "As we understand the data of the American decision and the role of experts mislead in its maturity, we are committed to the sovereignty of the Iraqi decision as the separation between the truth and the opposite determined by the constitutionality of national interpretations and the confidence of the grassroots, which we pride in after we worked hard time and took the courageous position To confront terrorism with all its addresses and objectives to preserve the sovereignty of Iraq and the brotherhood of its people. "
He added that this "is what disturbed the voices defending the sedition and the shipment of souls to remain in the spotlight on the remains of the bodies of innocent believers in Iraq."
US Vice President Mike Bens said Thursday that Washington was imposing sanctions on militia leaders linked to Iran in Iraq.
The vice president added that Washington would not stand idly by as the Iranian-backed militias spread terror.
The United States has imposed sanctions on four Iraqis it accuses of violating human rights and corrupt practices, the Treasury Department's Web site said.
The sanctions included Ryan Chaldean, leader of the popular Babylonian faction, as well as Washington's sanctions on Qadu, the leader of the Shabak militia in the Nineveh Plain, and Nawfal al-Aakoub, former governor of Nineveh. US sanctions also included Ahmed al-Jubouri, head of the Axis alliance and former Salahuddin governor.
On June 24, US President Donald Trump signed an executive order imposing new tough sanctions on Iran and confirmed that sanctions were aimed at Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
He also called on Iran to stop its sponsorship of terrorism, explaining that the sanctions come in response to the drop of Tehran to the American aircraft march recently.
