US to Extend Waiver for Iraq to Import Iranian Energy: Officials

ERBIL — The United States has shown willingness to extend a sanctions waiver for Iraq to continue importing vital Iranian gas and electricity.

Three Iraqi officials confirmed the report but did not immediately say how long the renewed waiver would last.

The decision comes amid uncertainty in the relations between the United States and Iraq over the recent heightened tensions with Iran.

A previous waiver, granted in October, is set to expire on February 13.

The three officials also revealed that the waiver would be renewed if Iraq is able to formulate a timeline by the end of the week, detailing a plan to wean itself off Iranian gas dependence.
