BAGHDAD, Aug 1 (KUNA) — After 23 years of Saddam Hussein’s occupation of Kuwait on August 2, 1990, the subsequent Kuwait liberation war and years of post-war tension, relations between the two Arab neighbors are witnessing remarkable improvement.
For the first time since the occupation and after settling almost all outstanding issues, the Iraqis observe the 23rd anniversary of the disastrous war without the sanctions as per the UN Security Council resolutions based on Chapter VII of the UN Charter.
“The anniversary falls this year after the two countries have closed a lot of outstanding files due to their governments’ determination to restore good neighborly relations that were gravely damaged by the actions of Saddam Hussein’s regime,” Spokesman of the Iraqi Prime Minister Ali Al-Moussawi told KUNA on the occasion.
Al-Moussawi cited His Highness the Prime Minister of Kuwait Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah’s recent visit to Iraq and the cooperation agreements signed during the visit as example of the remarkable progress the relations.
“The Iraqi-Kuwaiti relations are excellent and a clear example of the ability of countries to overcome disputes if genuine will existed on both sides,” he said.
Kuwait and Iraq signed June 12, six agreements and memorandums of understanding following official talks between HH Kuwaiti Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber and his Iraqi counterpart Nouri Al-Maliki.
The agreements cover a wide array of domains, including education, scientific research, aviation, economy, culture, transport and environment.
For his part, Iraqi Vice-President Khodair Al-Khuzai echoed a similar view.
“Relations between the two countries are developing and bilateral cooperation are expanding to cover all domains,” he told KUNA.
Al-Khuzai admitted that the tension was running high between the two Arab nations during the era of Saddam Hussein.
“But since the toppling of Saddam Hussein’s regime in 2003, the new Iraqi regime sought better relations Kuwait and had taken several steps towards confidence-building. ” “However, the most remarkable development of relations took place this year, when Kuwaiti government played an important role in ending Iraq Chapter VII status. ” On June 27, The UN Security Council on voted unanimously to get Iraq partially out of Chapter VII of the UN Charter, transfer the files of the missing Kuwaitis and property under the responsibility of the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI), and put an end to the 1999 post of the High-Level Coordinator for those files.
The Council transferred those two humanitarian issues, under Chapter VI, to UNAMI’s attention, taking into consideration the Kuwaiti conditions aimed at having the files constantly under Council review.
Meanwhile, Basra Provincial Council Member Ahmed Al-Sulaiti expressed hopes “Iraq and Kuwait would manage to reach final settlement to all pending issues” He also applauded the positive stances of both governments which show the reality of the new relationship between the two countries. MP and a member of Iraqi parliament’s Security and Defense Committee Hakim Al-Zamili told KUNA that “Iraq’s removal from Chapter VII is a good step towards complete restoration of its status and role in the region. ” He went on to say that “Iraq only needs to pay the remaining part of the agreed upon compensations to Kuwait to close this chapter of its history and resolve the problems caused by the wrong policies of Saddam Hussein. ” He described the Iraq’s relations with Kuwait as historical and deep-rooted.
Zamili underlined the importance of dialogue and negotiations between the two neighbors to iron out differences.
Ali Al-Shallah, senior leader of the ruling State of Law Coalition, told KUNA that “after Iraq’s exist from Chapter VII, relations with Kuwait had come back on the right track. ” “The Iraqi-Kuwaiti relations are now better than before particularly after the recent reciprocal visits of the top officials for both nations. ”

8-01-13 Eagle1:   I have received countless emails, text messages and phone calls today regarding some story making the rounds about us only having 30 days in which to exchange our IQD.
The quick answer to this rumor is, NO! Whoever is circulating this story has some bad information.
Let me state this as emphatically as possible so that there is no misunderstanding. To place that kind of time limit on exchanging our IQD/IQN for USD, or any other currency, under normal circumstances would be a general violation of international banking rules and regulations.
The exception to the rule comes when a specific currency is sanctioned, such as when the old Saddam notes were taken out of circulation. Mexico did something similar when they removed a dictator many years ago and took all of the notes out of circulation that bore his picture.
I don’t remember the specific time frame when the old Saddam notes were pulled out of circulation (and it may have been something like 30 or 60 days, or even 90 days), but that currency was specifically sanctioned by the US, by the UN, and by the IMF and forbidden to be used in international trade.
Once De La Rue had printed up the new currency we now have in circulation and George Bush signed executive order #13303 permitting us the freedom to purchase and hold that currency toward the day when it would be restored to normal status, the stigma of the Saddam era was removed.
Frank has frequently talked about, and we have discussed, the introduction of the lower denominated notes as well as the coins. Those are not “NEW” currency in the legal sense of the word. They are additional denominations of the IQD — the same IQD that has been in circulation as the “NEW” currency for a decade.
That’s different from having a truly new and different currency, and despite some of the poorly translated articles out of Iraq, the CBI is NOT introducing new currency.
They are adding additional lower denominated notes to their already existing currency.
That said, we’ve all heard about the effort by the CBI to gather in the three-zero notes as much as possible and exchange them for lower denominated notes.
Again, that’s totally different from requiring people to do their exchanges from the IQD to the USD (or whatever other currency) within some narrow time frame such as the 30-days proposed in the erroneous post that has been floating around today.
Let me give you another comparison. I have friends who still have thousand-dollar bills that they hang onto. The UST and the Fed stopped printing those a long time ago (to the best of my knowledge). Nevertheless, they are still good and people who take them to the bank today can still exchange them for other lower-denominated notes.
I’ve even got one friend who says (although I haven’t seen it) that he has a $10,000 note. It is still good even though those notes haven’t been in general circulation for many years.
You get the picture, I’m sure.
We hear that Kuwait is getting ready to introduce a totally new currency which includes similar security features to the IQD. As far as I know, though, it is still the same KWD that’s in circulation today with the same relative value.
For security reasons, I’m sure that Kuwait will want to draw in as much of the old currency as possible in as short a time as possible, but I’ve heard nothing that indicates that they will not honor the currency now in use, even if folks hang onto it for some prolonged length of time.
Again, to restate what I’ve already said, there is no new currency being issued by Iraq — just additional lower-denominated notes in the same currency.
Barring some enormous regime change that would bring a dictator like Saddam back into power in Iraq in such a way as to reimpose sanctions on the country, the IQD/IQN with which we are familiar will be Iraq’s currency for international trade for years to come.
There are no requirements pending that would demand that we do our exchanges within a 30-day, 60-day or 90-day period — or even a two-year period.

[FLPatriot59] Robertprofessor So that’s 2 “Qi-Card” sightings in the past hour.

[Robertprofessor] What is important is if the Qi cards are active, then they did not need to be recalibrated. That may mean all of the numbers for the reval that were pinged early Th morning (and all countires pinged back accurately) are good too.

08-01-13 SEDNET1:    I KNOW THERE IS NOT TO BE ANY BASHING OF SO-CALLED GURU’S I HAVE JUST NOW BEEN ADVISED THAT SOME IDIOT FROM NESARA HAS PUT UP SOME BS POST WITH OKIES NAME TO IT THAT IS ASKING FOR PERSONAL INFORMATION, HOW MUCH DINAR YOU HAVE, ETC. AND PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY ASKING ME AND THE OOM TEAM IF THIS IS REALLY OKIE! ARE YOU PEOPLE OUT OF YOUR FREAKING MINDS? WE HAVE TOLD YOU TIME AND AGAIN TO NEVER GIVE OUT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO ANY ONE! AND FOR CRYING OUT LOUD OKIE WOULD NEVER REPEAT EVER SIGN ON TO ANY SUCH REPORT! I SAY AGAIN, WHAT THE HELL IS THE MATTER WITH THESE PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

8-1-13 dinarmaven:    I think the most significant piece of info from today is if the rate showed up on the teller screens live. (as opposed to all the “back-screen” stuff that we have had to listen to over the years. That’s the TR system) IF (and I mean IF) the rate went live for ten minutes, I am aware of a couple of other times that this has occurred recently…. and it was said that there were certain transactions that were needing to accomplish during that window. So I’m wondering if it was a test, (I really DONT think they need to test this puppy any further after years and years of getting ready) or just the facilitation of a transaction for a whale or something.

if there is a crazy low rate on the RV, and we only have a 30 day window…. no worries. If you feel that you would miss out on any future upswing in the IQD, (like if they come out floating…) then CE into a multi-currency account tagged as IQD. Then you can ride the wave all the way to the top if you want to… DONT WORRY ABOUT IT!!!

Report of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) / Mohammed Sharif Abu Mayssam
Published on Thursday, 01 August / August 2013 20:03
Did not bring the report of the International Monetary Fund recently released a new, could refer to the new features of evolution or a citizen of the defect, unknown in the body of the Iraqi economy, in spite of rumination with sentences and words.
Annual report, which was prepared after several visits punctuated by the process of collecting data from inside the scene of the Iraqi economy, he pointed out the importance of diversifying revenue and not to rely on one side in the TTM fear of fluctuations in oil prices, along with the importance of the development of the private sector non-oil and liberalization of the foreign exchange market to encourage investment. . And the right to do so is to repeat and ruminate about what was said and reported daily in writings and تنظيرات the Iraqi economists in seminars and conferences.
The report brought the same reasons that are repeated annually فتقف behind the failures of the ongoing economic (deteriorating security situation caused by continuing to wrestle political misuse of funds – calling for direct spending in public budgets, reduce waste and improve the quality of spending, «with regard to the electricity sector and spending on salaries by reducing the growth of employment in the public sector with the construction of public financial reserves can fortify spending declines in oil exports or in oil prices – but he praised the government’s performance in maintaining macroeconomic stability in Iraq.
International Monetary Fund which committed Iraq with the World Bank and the Paris Club Bmasmi economic reforms when settling the issue of debt without laws regulating market relations and movement of capital contributed in guiding monetary policy in Iraq over the past ten years, which led to what led to him after detection of the movement of the transfer of funds in the central auction, and was a trustee with the World Bank on public budgets annually makers in Iraq . .
According to its annual report this year, said the reason for the transfer request «, which he called a project» on foreign currency parallel market are the measures the central bank last did not give the real deal for this dilemma did not reveal to us about the results of the economic reforms committed by Iraq, and the secret of instability in monetary policy despite the costs of high spent on work items that policy, which contributed to the set, only to demand liberalization of the foreign exchange market, praising »previous policies of the Central Bank which has achieved monetary stability over three years,» according to the report.
On this, the follower of the history of the recommendations and claims that it was dictated by the Fund on the Central Bank of Iraq like a spiritual father, surprised by the fact that the provisions of the report in this regard, which only displays the reality (and leave the issue of non-verification of monetary stability despite the multiplicity of outlets selling the dollar dramatically) while ignoring the growing demand for the dollar by traders Iraq’s neighboring countries in order to finance trade those states besieged, leaving this matter to his family like a not significant days this policy dealing with the results of the Central Bank current, at a time Amplify the reference rate of growth in the overall economy to the extent that the reader believe that 9% of this growth came from outside the oil
