​There has been to date little impact on Iraq's economy or energy supply as a result of US sanctions against Iran. Trade between Iran and Iraq continues in non-dollar currencies to allow the import and export of goods. Iraq continues to import electricity and gas from Iran as permitted under a waiver provided by the US Government.
