    (Independent) ... The Wall Street Journal published, that the United States is considering reconsidering military aid to Iraq, if Baghdad decides to end the foreign presence on its soil.

    The newspaper revealed that "the Office of the Near East Affairs of the US Department of State submitted a request to the Office of Management and Budget at the White House, whether it can cancel the request of $ 100 million for the fiscal year 2021, because of the current situation in Iraq."
    A statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed that a final decision has not been taken, but senior administration officials have ordered a review of the funds that may be held or reallocated if Iraq requests the departure of US forces from Iraq.
    "We are constantly reviewing our assistance to countries to ensure they align with our policy goals and optimize the taxpayers' money," said a State Department official.
    For his part, US President Donald Trump threatened to impose billions of dollars in sanctions if the United States was forced to withdraw its forces, saying, "Unless the United States leaves Iraq on a friendly basis, the United States will impose sanctions on it like never before."
    The US State Department also threatened to freeze Iraq’s account in the Federal Reserve Bank in New York, a move that could undermine the Iraqi economy and create a monetary crisis in Iraq’s financial system.
    The value of US aid to Iraq at the military and economic level was about $ 3.7 billion, including $ 250 million to support Iraqi purchases of American defense equipment, help fund other Iraqi acquisitions, training efforts, and build defense institutions.
    Iraq will also face the possibility of US sanctions if it buys the Russian air defense system s-400, after some members of parliament talk about holding talks with Russia to buy this system, according to statements by US officials.

    The newspaper indicated that it had seen e-mail correspondence between the US State Department and Defense that showed that the State Department's Near East Affairs Office was preparing to cut the $ 250 million that is supposed to be paid under the US foreign military funding program for Iraq for the current fiscal year.
    According to these correspondences, the office intends to address the White House Administration and Budget Office to ask him about the possibility of canceling the request for $ 100 million for fiscal year 2021 "because of current developments on the ground."
    US President Donald Trump said a few days ago that he had no problem withdrawing from Iraq, but that Iraqis should pay for the withdrawal, noting that countries like Saudi Arabia and South Korea are pushing to deploy more American forces.
    Trump said - in an interview with Fox News - that Iraqi leaders are not asking for the withdrawal of US forces in private talks, adding that his country has built expensive facilities in Iraq, and that Baghdad has to pay all of these costs, and indicated that in his possession of $ 35 billion in funds Iraq.
    And deployed in Iraq, about 5300 US soldiers in several bases across the country.
    The Iraqi parliament had issued a decision with the approval of the majority of the attendees, requesting the government to end the presence of any foreign forces on Iraqi soil and prevent it from using its airspace for any reason, in the wake of the killing of the prominent Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani in an American raid in the Iraqi capital.
    After the decision of the Iraqi parliament, the American president threatened to impose sanctions on Iraq if the American forces were forced to leave.
    The former commander of the Qods Force in the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, General Qassem Soleimani, was killed in a raid by a plane marching near Baghdad airport on January 3, and Iran responded after only a few days by firing rockets at the Erbil and Ain al-Assad bases hosting American forces in Iraq.
