WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States has renewed an exception allowing Iraq to import electricity from Iran, but for a shorter period this time, a State Department official said.

The official added that Washington would reassess the possibility of renewing the exception again once a “credible government” was formed in Iraq.

“The secretary of state gave this short extension of the exception to allow time for the formation of a credible government,” said the official, referring to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

He indicated that this exception would expire on May 26. Exceptions were previously granted for a period of three months.
