Iraq reiterates opposition to US sanctions against Iran: Parliament speaker

During a meeting with Iranian Ambassador to Baghdad Iraj Masjedi on Saturday, Halbusi said Iraq had to meet its energy needs by importing gas and electricity from Iran but the US sanctions had created problems in this regard. Iran on Friday signed an agreement to extend exports of 1,200 megawatts of electricity to neighboring Iraq. The deal was inked by the managing director of Iran's state-run Organization for Management of Electric Power Generation and Transmission (Tavanir), Mohammad Hassan Motevalizadeh, and the Iraqi deputy electricity minister in Tehran. Iraq is the biggest importer of electricity from Iran. It needs more than 23,000 megawatts of electricity to meet its domestic demand but years of war following the 2003 US invasion have left its power infrastructure in tatters and a deficit of some 7,000 megawatts. The top Iraqi parliamentarian further said that Iran and Iraq had played a leading role in promoting stability and security in the region. Halbusi lauded Iran's key and unforgettable role in helping Iraq fight against terrorism and expressed hope that Tehran would continue its support for Baghdad in the reconstruction plan of the war-stricken country. He said the Iraqi government and parliament attached importance to strengthening relations with Iran in various fields. The Iranian ambassador, for his part, said the "cruel" US sanctions had definitely created problems, but the Islamic Republic managed to make great achievements in defensive, scientific and economic sectors by relying on domestic resources. Masjedi commended Iraq's firm stance on Washington's unilateral sanctions against Iran. He expressed hope that Tehran and Baghdad would further develop cooperation in all areas and voiced the Islamic Republic's readiness to help Iraq in its reconstruction projects. Back in January, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif commended Iraq's positive stance on the promotion of ties with Iran, saying the two countries had managed to foil US bids to sabotage mutual relations. "After [achieving] victory against Daesh, some countries, including the US, have created certain problems in the way of the two countries' cooperation, but fortunately, they were defused thanks to the wisdom of the two countries' officials," Zarif told reporters upon his arrival in the Iraqi capital.

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save ThemDonate here: Gofundme: https://www.gofundme.com/rationalbeliever Paypal: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=EN79XRUF35QWL **************************************************************************************************************************************** As'salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Dear viewers! As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
