"We expect that the first issuance will be in the value of 3 billion Iraqi dinars ($2.58 million)," said Abdul-Basit Turki Saeed, speaking through an interpreter.
"This is the first time after Saddam Hussein, and this is the first time that they are being issued for monetary policy and not for financing."
