Carrefour Trebil achieves unprecedented revenues in one day

Recommended Posts

Iraq is getting smart. With Iran causing all kinds of commotion in the Strait of Hormuz, Iraq will need another shipping option, should things get really nasty.  Pipe oil and load ships in Aqaba, short trip through Suez Canal to the Mediterranean. Easy peasy. :twothumbs:

An Arab newspaper reported on Saturday that billions of dollars were stuck between Iraq and Jordan, saying that the issue had not been resolved for 25 years.

"Negotiations between Jordan and Iraq over the settlement of the financial file that have been stuck between them for more than 25 years have yet to be resolved," a senior Jordanian official was quoted as saying .
 
"The reason for the failure of the negotiations is due to the great difference in the data provided by each party regarding its financial claims from the other," the Jordanian official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
 
 
 
The Jordanian government says it has debts owed to Iraq for many years, while Iraqdemands the release of deposits frozen in the central bank and banks, since the era of Saddam Hussein .
 
Jordan's debts to Iraq , according to the most recent report of the Central Bank of Jordan, include delayed assets on the Central Bank of Iraq , which amounted to more than 1.1 billion dollars, which arose in implementation of the trade agreements and payment facilities, and that the collection of these debts depends on the final outcome of negotiations between the two countries.
 
According to the Jordanian official, "the biggest problem lies in the lack of accurate data on the Iraqi side on the financial file, whether its deposits or debts to Jordan."
 
Jordan has transferred to Iraq a sum of its frozen deposits according to documents proving its size, but the Iraqi side has no record of its receipt of the amount.
 
"The two sides have held several meetings in recent years to settle and complete the financial file, but no agreement or understandings have been reached to close it," the Jordanian official said.

Billions of dollars are stuck between Jordan and Iraq
 
 
 
 

Billions of dollars are stuck between Jordan and Iraq

 
Amman - Zaid al-Dabisiyah

20 July 2019

 
A Jordanian official said in a statement to the "New Arab" that the negotiations between Jordan and Iraq on the settlement of the financial file that have been stuck between them for more than 25 years, there is still no formula for the solution so far. 


The Jordanian official, who asked not to be named, said the reason for the stalled negotiations was due to the huge difference in the data each party provides on its financial claims from the other. 

The 
Jordanian government says it has debts owed to Iraq for many years, while Iraq demands the release of deposits frozen in the central bank and banks, since the era of Saddam Hussein. 

Jordan's debts to Iraq, according to the most recent report of the Central Bank of Jordan, include delayed assets on the Central Bank of Iraq, which amounted to more than 1.1 billion dollars, which arose in implementation of the trade agreements and payment facilities, and that the collection of these debts depends on the final outcome of negotiations between the two countries.


"The available data indicate that Iraq has between 3 and 5 billion dollars deposited in Jordan since the time of Saddam Hussein, and there is no real Jordanian disclosure on this matter," said Hoshyar Abdullah, a member of the Iraqi parliament's finance committee. 

Abdullah added: "I think it is time to open the file of funds and dues that we or us with Jordan, and there are responsibilities on both sides," explaining that "so far there is no serious move from Baghdad to the Iraqi funds in Jordan, and there are at the same numbers on Iraq as a religion for Jordan also there is no resolution on it, it is important that there is a movement of the file from both sides or at least revealing to restore each party's right. 

According to the Jordanian official, the biggest problem lies in the lack of accurate data on the Iraqi side on the financial file, whether its deposits or debt to Jordan.

Jordan had transferred to Iraq a sum of its frozen deposits according to documents proving its size, but the Iraqi side has no record of receipt of the amount. The Jordanian official said that the two sides have held several meetings in recent years to settle and complete the financial file, but no agreement or understandings to close it.

Jordan and Iraq agreed in February to strengthen bilateral cooperation in various fields, especially economic ones. Iraq exempted more than 300 goods exported from Jordan from customs duties, and trucks were allowed to enter its territory directly, in addition to agreeing to establish a joint economic zone on the border between the two countries. 

The Jordanian Energy Minister Hala Zwati said this week that Iraq will begin supplying Jordan with ten thousand barrels of crude oil per day, while it was agreed to accelerate the process of extending the pipeline from Iraq to Jordan. 

But this agreement received opposition voices inside Iraq, especially in the province of Basra, which sees the economic rapprochement with Jordan to damage their interests in affecting the commercial port.
