Iraq Gets Extension on Energy From Iran06/15 09:25

   The United States has given Iraq a new 90-day extension for an Iran 
sanctions waiver allowing Baghdad to import electricity and natural gas from 
Tehran.

   BAGHDAD (AP) -- Two Iraqi officials say the United States has given Iraq a 
new 90-day extension for an Iran sanctions waiver allowing Baghdad to import 
electricity and natural gas from Tehran.

   An Iraqi official told The Associated Press on Saturday that Baghdad was 
informed about the waiver during a call the previous day between U.S. Secretary 
of State Mike Pompeo and Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi.

   Another official confirmed the waiver, saying it will start June 19. 

   Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized 
to speak to the media.

   Iraq's power sector is in disrepair and doesn't generate enough electricity 
to meet domestic demand, especially during the scorching summer months.

   Iraq has received one waiver after another since U.S. sanctions on Iran went 
into effect in November.
