Adam Montana:   [Q.  Do ya think the dinar will stay pegged to the dollar?]

A.  I don’t believe it will fall away from the dollar anytime soon, regardless of the RV. As the dollar falls, if Iraq’s currency is getting stronger, they just continue to adjust the exchange rate accordingly.

Stryker:  HCL? I think so!

Folks, they are talking about an HCL agreement, read this quote…

Quote: Baghdad to form a technical committee of neutral experts assume the verification process of the potential of each province or territory producer of oil on the quantity that can be exported from the production and not only because the production is export

Not just an agreement between the Kurds and the Federal Government of Iraq but an agreement to pass an Oil & Gas Law once for all.

This is great news and something I’ve been expecting was going on behind the scenes, time will tell if I’m right.

Baghdad: Hamza Mustafa:  Revealed the Kurdistan Alliance bloc in the Iraqi parliament that the talks conducted by the Quartet, which recently set up by the Iraqi parliament to resolve the dispute of oil between Baghdad and Erbil resulted in a proposal submitted by the Committee headed by the first deputy of the Parliament Qusay al-Suhail KRG President Barzani.
A spokesman for the Kurdistan Alliance, a pro Ok, told the «Middle East» «Barzani told the committee, which includes, in addition to al-Suhail, both Aref Tayfur, second deputy speaker of parliament, and Fuad Masum, head of the Kurdistan Alliance bloc, and Adnan al-Janabi, Chairman of the parliamentary oil and energy, he proposed to the federal government in Baghdad to form a technical committee of neutral experts assume the verification process of the potential of each province or territory producer of oil on the quantity that could be exported, and not only because the production is export production ».  Ok added that «this proposal will be binding in the event of the Kurdistan Committee approved it also required all oil-producing provinces in Iraq with the aim to get rid of all of the assumptions and preconditions on the amount of what comes out of the oil». The good that «the delegation, which visited the region is not a negotiating team as much as it is a delegation mediation in order to bridge the gap in viewpoints between the two sides and on the back of the tension that happened between the region and the center due to the contents of the budget bill, the amount of commits Kurdistan region exported, which is 400 thousand barrels, as well as imposition of penalty clauses in the event of non-compliance with the export of this quantity ».  The good that «quantity contained in the draft budget is not accurate, but is the amount of virtual and therefore the rejection of the terms of the penal stems from the fact that if we were able to produce 400 thousand barrels per day, it is not necessarily to be able to be exported because production is export, since there are oil fields Many in the region produce oil, but they are still without an infrastructure for export, especially the pipes that connect them ».  Through good desire for the Kurdistan Alliance to «respond to the federal government for this proposal, which would end the problems between the two parties, including technical problems that quickly turn into problems and political crises», pointing out that «the approval of the formation of the committee would pave the way for the possibility of adoption of the budget after the elections because the current session of Parliament ends practically in mid-June next, and thus is still a chance for approval, rather than carried over to the next government ».
And on whether the Kurdistan Alliance will resume its sessions in parliament to approve the budget, said good: «In case was approved on the Commission, it is imperative that the Cabinet shall issue a supplement to the budget to parliament includes not specify the amount must region exported a 400 thousand barrels per day, and the lifting of sanctions Criminal imposed on the region ».
The Iraqi parliament has recessed several times for lack of quorum due to the masses of the province of the Kurdistan Alliance and «united», led by Parliament Speaker Osama Najafi meetings.  Before the end of the legislative term of the last Parliament form a quadripartite committee to resolve the dispute while the oil decided to adjourn until further notice depends on what the Quartet achieve results.
The Iraqi Oil Minister Abdul-Karim and coffee recently announced near the center and the region reach a solution to the dispute of oil after it agreed KRG to export 100 thousand barrels a day through the company «Sumo» National.  Non-stop exporting oil due to sabotage suffered by the carrier pipe from Kirkuk to Ceyhan prevented the export of this amount.

Thursday Morning News Summaries

Salman al-Moussawi: We have reached an agreement with the Kurds on the budget, but their attitude changed last moment

An MP for the State of Law coalition has announced that an agreement was reached between them and the Kurds on the budget issues….and the bill should be passed even though there was a last minute change of heart it appears from the Kurds…..he reported that some blocs were attempting extortion against the State of Law MP’s but but they refuse to listen to these efforts…..there may still be some disagreements between Baghdad and Erbil….but the bill should be passed…..my comment on that is “show me the money.”

Iraq is preparing for negotiations for joining the World Trade Organization in third round

A team of Iraqi’s are preparing themselves in the manner they believe is needed to help Iraq in its ascension efforts in joining the World Trade Organization.
….

Experts: Iraq does not employ Moisnath previous surpluses and 70 trillion dinars frozen in banks

70 trillion dinars have been found deposited in the the Rasheed and Rafidain Banks in Iraq……most of the funds come from government deposits derived from surpluses of of annual budgets estimated to be 15%…..say what????? Since when does the government get to hide money like this…..especially when they have projects at the end of each year that seem to remain uncompleted…..this kinda sorta reeks of graft and corruption…..so later they seem to indicate that only 40 trillion dinars is the governments portion….the remaining 30 trillion dinars are from the public and private sectors…..so much for these banks being dry of funds as they had said earlier…..these funds have been mounting since 2006…..saying the amounts are earmarked for specific projects and cannot be manipulated or disbursed is crazy….how long is the money going to be allowed to just lay there.

Iraq looking customs tariffs applied to complete its accession to the World Trade Organization

More talk of WTO ascension…..this time it centers around customs tariffs…..an area the Iraqis believe to be important with regard to ascension requirements.

Iraq: your next holiday destination?

Iraqi tourism says that Iraq is not dead, it lives. Of course one needs to exercise caution as to where to go and what to do, but many tourist draws that were in demand in the 70′s are making a comeback today.

Warnings of foreign companies in Iraq to a mass exodus

This article is stating that US oil giant Exxon-Mobil is pulling up stakes in Iraq, largely due to this year’s budget fiasco and lack of seeing any financial dues thus far this year….personally….with all that Exxon-Mobil has invested in Iraq….I find this very difficult to believe…..this article also points to there possibly being a mass exodus of foreign companies from Iraq….it can be expected that the World Bank will drop Iraq’s credit rating due to the instability in the financial market of the country……so much negativity at a time when others are saying that things are improving.

Will take a short break at this point….more later  Randy
