Economist: The US Treasury will place 4 other banks on the blacklist


According to economic analyst Diaa Al-Mohsen, the US Treasury may seek to place four private banks on a blacklist, and the case may reach the Central Bank, which will not be far from the US Treasury’s steps.

“The Iraqi economy follows rumors,” Al-Mohsen informed Al-Maalouma, “and this matter applies to the dollar exchange rate, especially when political tensions occur inside Iraq.”

“The US Assistant Secretary of the Treasury’s visit to Iraq occurred during a meeting with the Prime Minister and the Governor of the Central Bank, where she stressed the importance of preserving the dollar and not smuggling it abroad and to neighboring countries, as well as preserving it and ensuring that it is not used to finance terrorism,” he added.

He stated that “the Central Bank and the Monetary Authority provided ambiguous and unrealistic answers, and as a result, the coming period may see sanctions imposed on four private banks in addition to the other 19 banks, and this matter may go beyond that and reach the Central Bank, which may also be placed under supervision.”
