KUWAIT, Iraq - Iraq's approval of any Iranian request to exchange trade between the two countries in local currency instead of the US dollar has been ruled out by economic expert Majid al-Suri, noting that such an agreement would not be in Iraq's favor.

Al-Suri said that Iraq can not apply trade with Iran in local currencies because the trade balance will be in favor of Iran and the majority of trade for its benefit. "

He added that "the implementation of this agreement will work to store the Iraqi currency within Iran, which is not in the interest of Iraq, pointing out that" such a decision is not only the competence of the Central Bank of Iraq,

but the power of the Government of the Ministry of Finance in consultation with the Central Bank of Iraq and do not expect the bank The Central Bank of Iraq on such a matter. "


"A number of countries, including India, Russia, China, Brazil and South Africa, are trying to reduce the dollar's control over international trade and the trade war between China and the United States has resulted," he said.

The governor of the Central Bank of Iran and Crown Prince Ali Abdullah announced on Sunday the follow-up of the bank to conclude monetary agreements with Iraq, Russia and Azerbaijan to deal in national currencies.
