  8. LINK Why does China seek to acquire Iraqi oil? 6th April, 2020 The US "Oil Price" website indicates that China is racing against time to complete what has been called a "lifelong oil deal" with Iraq. With the United States preoccupied with fighting Corona, Beijing believes that it is open to it in Iraq, according to the site. On this issue, economist Hammam Al-Shamaa said, "In its relationship with Iraq, China has three aspects, one political aspect, that Iraq is a key to the Middle East, and another economic, considering Iraq is the second oil producer in the "OPEC", and the third technician, since Iraq represents The key to the Silk Road.” Al-Shamaa continued by saying, “China can find an alternative to Iraq that will supply it with oil, but finds the key to it as it aspires to, so it seeks to develop its economic potential. Through Iraq, China reaches promising markets.” Al-Shamaa added, "Iraq will remain for a long time an importer of Chinese goods, unlike some countries that have started relying on themselves, so Iraq is very tempting for Chinese exports."

  10. LINK Iran holds China responsible for not informing the world of the seriousness of Corona 4/6/2020 10:45:08 Iran has implicitly held China responsible for not informing the world of the seriousness of the Corona virus, accusing it of hiding the true number of its victims, saying that Beijing’s statistics on Corona were a “painful joke” to the world. Iranian Health Ministry spokesman Kianosh Jehanpour described the figures and statistics issued by the Chinese government regarding the corona virus victims as "a painful joke" for the world. In response to a question to the Turkish "Anatolia" agency during a press conference in the capital, Tehran, last night, Jehanpur said that "China has made a painful joke to the world through the numbers and statistics it announced (at the beginning) regarding the deaths and injuries of corona." He pointed out that "the countries where this disease spread, thought that it is lighter than the flu, in view of China's statements, but it is not so." Jehanpur continued: "It cannot be said that the period of this disease is two months." A spokesman for the Iranian Ministry of Health considered that "the countries that recorded corona infections two weeks after the discovery of the virus in China reached the point of the scandal, but did not disclose any information," noting that "these countries have turned into crossings of the virus and remained following a policy Confidentiality." The Chinese ambassador to Iran replied to Jehanpur, wrote on his Twitter account, telling him: "The Chinese Ministry of Health has a daily conference and I suggest you read its news carefully to get the results." Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi made the remarks, praising Beijing in a tweet: "The Chinese government and people have been at the forefront of fighting the Corona virus and providing generous assistance to other countries around the world." The accusations made by the Iranian health official to China are consistent with those made by US officials, led by President Donald Trump and his Foreign Minister Mike Pompeo to Beijing about hiding Corona victims and not reporting its seriousness. As of Sunday evening, Corona's deaths in Iran had reached 3 thousand and 603, while the injuries were 58 thousand and 226. In all, the number of Corona sufferers worldwide exceeded one million and 266 thousand, of whom more than 69 thousand died, while more than 261 thousand recovered, according to the site "Worldometer".

Al-Zorfi said during a televised interview on the official channel, which was followed by "NASS" today (5 April 2020), that "parliament members will have an opinion that is consistent with the health, economic and security situation in the country, and from this standpoint they are facing a national issue and they are motivated to address problems and try to cross from The crisis with minimal losses. " He added that "80 deputies signed me during the commissioning, and I did not hear that there were objections," noting "I presented the government curriculum and called for a quick session of parliament to vote on the government booth to begin with real remedies for the problems that the Iraqi people suffer from, including the health and economic crisis." Al-Zrafi revealed that "starting a big campaign to obtain international support for Iraq to confront Corona with personal contacts", pointing out that "Iraq begins with a new phase and all countries that want a real partnership should start with the economic file." Al-Zorfi stressed that "Iraq does not need militarization or aggravation, but rather He needs an economy, and this is what I spoke to with the ambassadors of the permanent members. ” Al-Zorfi pointed out that "there are many institutions that must be curtailed because they are unproductive, I have complete schedules of foreign loans and I have spoken with the ambassadors separately," explaining that "there is a hidden will distributed in all ministries that nothing is built in Iraq." He continued, "I spoke with the ambassadors individually about the strategic projects of their countries in Iraq and touched the seriousness of starting work," vowing to remove any local official who stands in the face of development projects from his position. And he added, "Through my parliamentary work, I know that there are many major projects that are being obstructed. In my last meeting with foreign ambassadors, I reviewed, for example, with the French ambassador, the Baghdad metro file, and informed me about the obstacles to its achievement. This is, for example, some of the obstacles deliberate, and the other by bureaucracy. And, I say to the corrupt and the obstructed, you must stay away from us, we will complete these obstructive projects. ” Regarding the expenditures, the taxpayer said that “some companies of the Ministry of Industry and Trade are not productive to the point that they spend more electricity than they produce twice,” vowing to subject them to “surgeries that will be beneficial.” And Al-Zrafi said, “We do not have any accumulated cash stock, if we are not daring to reduce unnecessary spending and work to balance the economy, which will solve the disaster.” He expressed his surprise by saying, “We laugh at people .. 90,000 people were employed in the Ministry of Electricity, with chaos and without consulting a ministry Planning, and nobody knows what these ninety thousand do, and in this year alone, operating expenses increased by 8.5 trillion dinars. ” The taxpayer said, “The Ministry of Electricity, for example, invokes that it is unproductive because it does not want to collect from the poor, and this is inaccurate, because it is possible according to two plans not to collect from the poor segments, according to the ration card, as well as excluding retirees from collection, but in return to collect electricity bills. From "commercial, industrial, governmental and agricultural establishments". "As for the housing units, I think we should divide the housing units into several segments, and poorer and retired groups are excluded from collection." He warned, "There will come a day when we cannot buy even a pill of Brasetol in light of the chaotic operating expenses. We will take reform measures before we reach this disaster." Regarding the threats made by factions against his candidacy for the position, Al-Zorfi said, “I respect everyone’s point of view, but this country is managed by the Iraqi nation, with all its components, and I don’t hold a contract towards any political party, and even those who launch the threats, I say to them,‘ God forgive you. ” They may be wrong or delusional, I personally do not want to go to clashes, my plan is to go mainly towards the economy, this is what we have to focus on, starting from the economy will make us united, because everyone agrees that the economy is the basis, but if we start from politics or Security, we will remain in the circle of differences. " "There are those who tell me that we have to buy ballistic missiles, but I think these are superstitious trends. I do not know what to do with strategic weapons. We do not need more weapons or more fighting. What we need is at least 10 years of economic prosperity, and in order to This, we must start the mission with bold and swift measures on the one hand, and change the mentality and trends on the other hand, our goal should not be to create more hotbeds of conflict or turn Iraq into one of the hotspots. He added, "The relationship with competing, competing or warring countries is not an issue in which Iraq is unique. I talk about us about the issue of the conflict between the United States and Iran. The two countries are clearly present in the markets of the United Arab Emirates, the Sultanate of Oman, the Turkish Republic, and many other countries that have attracted the investments of these two." The two countries, and what we want to do here in Iraq, is to invite these two countries to invest inside Iraq, investment is what brings attendance to countries inside Iraq, and at the same time, investment is what guarantees sustainable security and stability for the country, and not the accumulation of more weapons and missiles .. ” . "The issue is not a dilemma in the end, and I spoke personally to the American ambassador and asked him to schedule the departure of his country's forces from Iraq, and he promised me that half of the combat forces will leave the country by the end of this year, then schedule the exit of the rest of the forces. The Americans are our allies and contributed to defeat ISIS with the coalition." The international, and we do not deny this beautiful, and Iraq is a country that preserves the beautiful, but the scheduling of the exit of the forces is important to us, but as for the relationship with Iran, he did not inform me that there is any position towards me from Tehran, and personally I do not carry any hostility against Iran, but on the contrary Where the Republic helped us during the war against ISIS, and we do not forget these things Whoa, we want everyone to bring his money and start investing inside Iraq, and we do not want to take too long to restore regional and international conflicts.
