Iraq and other world nations are responding to President Donald Trump’s ban on refugees from seven predominantly Muslim countries.

In Iraq, Renas Jano, a member of the parliament’s foreign affairs committee, stated that  “it is very likely that Iraq will stop granting U.S. citizens entry visas.”

Iran released a statement stating it will retaliate by limiting visas to Americans and that it is closely monitoring the short-term fallout from the move and is considering “appropriate legal, consular and diplomatic measures.”

Sudan called Trump’s decision “very unfortunate.”

There has been no statements issued yet from the other affected Muslin nations of Syria, Somalia, Yemen, and Libya.
