Oil prices drop is an economic war on Russia and Iran, says Maliki from Basra
On Thursday, Vice President Nuri al-Maliki said—during his visit to the province of Basra—that the acute decline in oil prices did not happen automatically, and that Russia and Iran are targeted foremost, and Iraq is affected incidentally.
The Vice President of the Republic noted that “The economic war against these countries is complementary to the role of terrorism that kills innocent people,” adding that, “Economic wars are devastating the structure of the targeted countries and result in starvation of their people.”
