    The energy deals discussed were not disclosed, but Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi said yesterday that Iraq is close to signing a $ 30 billion oil deal worth US $ 53 billion with US energy firms ExxonMobil and PetroChina, Chinese.
    He said that Iraq expects to reap 400 billion dollars over the 30 years, which will be the agreement, and denied at the same time a relationship between this huge project and the US permission to Iraq to deal with Iran. 
    The US Secretary of State on Tuesday made a surprise visit to Baghdad, during which he met with Iraqi President Barham Salih and Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi, and discussed bilateral relations and the situation in the region. 
    Bombay's visit to Baghdad coincided with the United States sending a strike force, including the Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier and grenade launchers to the Gulf, "to deter Iran from any attack it may have against the United States."

    [size=18]LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's Guardian newspaper reported on Thursday a report on Iran's nuclear file and how it was facing Western pressure, commenting on President Hassan Rowhani's decision to suspend his country's commitment to some of the terms of the nuclear deal unless there was rapid progress in lifting sanctions.


    "Pompeo is asking Britain to help curb Iran," the paper said in a direct headline. 

    According to the report, under the nuclear deal in 2015 lifted economic sanctions imposed on Tehran in exchange for the reduction of uranium enrichment activities on its soil, but a spiritual threat to return to enrich uranium on the territory of his country will allow Iran to increase its stockpiles and heavy water after they were imported from abroad.


    The report says that Iran is suffering economically due to the return of economic sanctions after US President Donald Trump to withdraw from the nuclear agreement, where the value of the Iranian riyal fell from 32 thousand to the dollar to 153 thousand riyals against the dollar. 

    "The Americans will be happy that their economic pressure has finally resulted in cracks in Iran's structure and Washington will use it to attract the EU to its camp and get it out of the nuclear deal and impose additional sanctions on Iran from the European side," the author said. 

    "There are some officials in the administration, led by John Bolton, national security adviser, who want to prepare a scenario for the war on Iran as he did with Iraq in 2002."

    "The United States claims that Iran keeps the world hostage because of its nuclear threat," Britain's Financial Times reported on Thursday. 

    The report deals with what he calls the US-European cooperation to warn Iran of the consequences of the decision to suspend compliance with some of the terms of the nuclear agreement.
