On Thursday, the leader of the Fatah Alliance, Uday Abdel-Hadi, confirmed that US companies had failed to implement 20 energy projects after 2003.
Abdel-Hadi said in a press interview seen by Taqaddam, “The experience after 2003 with American companies in various specialties, especially electric power, has proven to be largely unsuccessful, with the failure of its companies to implement 20 important projects.”
He added, "Washington is the one who directly obstructs ending the electricity crisis in Iraq through its pressure on major international companies, including Germany's Siemens, to prevent the submission of any road map towards energy sustainability and to fix all the negatives according to a studied and systematic plan."
He pointed out that "re-agreement with American companies is a repeat of a wrong scenario, and the Iraqis will only gain from it more waste of money and wasted time, and the crisis will remain indefinitely because it comes within an American strategy to keep the country in a cycle of endless crises."
Iraq suffers from a chronic energy crisis that worsened after 2003, despite spending tens of billions of dollars on station construction projects.
