WAAR-DUHOK:

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi cancels a visit to Iran, his press office says, days after Baghdad announced it would comply with US sanctions against Tehran.

Abadi will still go ahead with a planned visit to Turkey on Tuesday but has scrapped the Iran leg of the trip “because of his busy schedule,” the office tells AFP.

The previous day, an Iraqi official who did not want to be named had said Abadi would visit neighbors Turkey and Iran to discuss economic issues.

The premier said last Tuesday that Iraq — which relies on neighboring Iran as a source of cheap imports — would reluctantly comply with US sanctions against Tehran that took effect the same day.
