TEHRAN: Iran's deputy speaker Mahmoud Sadeghi on Thursday called on Iraq to pay $ 1100 billion in financial compensation to Iran, in response to remarks made by Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi.

"Iraq has paid $ 1,100 billion in fine war with Iran," Sadiqi said in a tweet on Twitter. "Iran has not claimed war compensationin the past because it took into account Iraq's difficult circumstances."

"Now the prime minister of Iraq, rather than compensating, is walking with US sanctions against Tehran," he said.
