The Iraqi Parliament voted Monday to urge the government to take retaliatory ban on the entry of the Americans in Iraq if the US President Donald trump will not abandon its decision to ban the entry of Iraqis. About it reports AFP referring to one of the Iraqi Parliament, Hakim al-Zamili.

Another MP, Sadiq al-Laban, confirmed that “the vote was a call for government” to enact retaliatory measures.

“We are against this position from the new administration,” said Laban. “We hope that the us administration will reconsider this decision…” he added.

According to the Associated Press, this decision is binding on the Iraqi government.

However, it is not clear how this prohibition will apply to the American military, NGOs and humanitarian workers, oil companies and other Americans doing business in Iraq, says the Agency.

28 Jan trump has signed a decree that restricted the immigration of refugees from Muslim countries.

This decree was criticized by Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel, Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of great Britain Theresa may and other world leaders and politicians.

On 29 January, a Federal judge Ann Donnelly has partially suspended the decree.

The Ministry of national security of the USA has said it will obey the court order temporarily prohibiting the expulsion of U.S. immigrants from seven Muslim countries, however, the decree prohibiting their entry into the country, remains in force.
