Donald Trump threatens Iraq with sanctions if US troops leave


Donald Trump threatened Iraq on Sunday with “very strong“sanctions if the American troops were forced to leave the country, after the vote Sunday of the Iraqi Parliament to demand their expulsion.

If they do ask us to leave, if we don’t do it on a very friendly basis, we will impose sanctions on them like they’ve never seen before.“said the President on Air Force One, returning from Florida where he was on vacation.

They will make sanctions against Iran appear almost weak“, he added.

We have an extraordinarily expensive air base there. It cost billions of dollars to build. We will not leave if they do not reimburse us“, he said again.

Major reprisals

The Iraqi parliament on Sunday asked the government to “end the presence of foreign troops“in Iraq, during an extraordinary session in the presence of the resigning Prime Minister Adel Abdel Mahdi.

The US president has further threatened Tehran with “major retaliation“in the event of an Iranian attack on American installations in the Middle East in response to the elimination by the United States of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani.”If they do anything, there will be major retaliation“, did he declare.

Iran’s response to the assassination of General Qassem Soleimani “will certainly be military and against military sites“said an adviser to the Iranian Supreme Leader, Brigadier General Hossein Dehghan, in an interview with CNN on Sunday.

Mr. Trump also once again threatened to strike Iranian cultural sites. “They have the right to kill our nationals (…) and we do not have the right to touch their cultural sites? It doesn’t work like that“, he said.
