Policy of sanctions doomed: Hakim

Baghdad, Nov 13, IRNA -- Head of the Iraqi National Alliance (INA) Seyyed Ammar al-Hakim said on Monday that the policy of imposing sanctions is doomed.

He made the remarks in a meeting with EU Ambassador to Iraq Ramon Blecua, on Monday.

Condemning US unilateral sanctions against Iran, Hakim insisted on his stance of dismissing the policy of economic pressure on nations.

During the meeting, both sides discussed the latest local, regional and international developments surrounding the establishment of new Iraqi government.

Commenting on regional developments, Hakim highlighted the positive role Iraq can play in establishing regional stability.

He also called on European states to support Iraq and engage in the reconstruction of the country, especially cities freed from Daesh terrorists.
