Ahmed Shahid Al-Shammari, a member of the Popular Legal Movement, said today, Wednesday, that the United States of America is punishing Iraq with money for a variety of reasons.
In an interview with the Maalouma Agency, Al-Shammari stated, “The continued rise of the dollar is aimed at targeting Prime Minister Muhammad Shia al-Sudani and his government.”
He went on to say, “The Presidency of Parliament did not perform its real role in discussing the issue of the rise in the dollar exchange rate by hosting those concerned and developing appropriate solutions.”
He went on to say that “the rise in the price of the dollar on the black market has become a major concern among popular circles,” and he added that “the rise in the sale of the dollar is intentional and the United States of America stands behind it to target the Sudanese and his government.”
Representative Hadi Al-Salami warned of the consequences of losing control of the dollar’s parallel market exchange rate when it surpassed the 163 dinars per 100 dollar barrier.
