As per reports, Iran is likely open special account in one of Iraq’s state-owned banks to receive export earnings.

According to Mehdi Alipour, President of the Investment Commission of the Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture “US waivers for Iraq from Iran sanctions mean that the Arab country can do trade with Iran without using the dollar.”

Iran’s exports to Iraq surged by 55% in value and 65% in volume to reach $5.73 billion -- 21% of the total export during the period.
