I might be wrong, but I thought a fully seated government was one of the requirements for them to move into Article 8 which would allow their currency to be internationally accepted again ..

Interview

Improving Erbil-Baghdad relations great for US investors: trade official

By Salim Ibrahim 4/7/2019
 

 

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Recent improvement in the relationship between the federal government in Baghdad and the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) have created an attractive business environment for US companies to invest, a US trade official told Rudaw. 

A memorandum of understanding was recently signed between the US Chamber of Commerce and the KRG to enhance investment and trade relations.

The memorandum “focuses on how can we as two different business communities work together”, Steve Lutes, vice president of Middle East Affairs at the US Chamber of Commerce, told Rudaw's Omar Muradi on June 27. 


“It is all about engagement and exchange. So, some of that is on an information basis. It is letting US companies know what the opportunities are here for investment and commercial activity across the range of the economy. And some of that is also informing businesses here about how they can pursue partners and even opportunities in the United States,” Lutes said. 

“In addition to the information exchange, it is also about what we are doing here, looking to accomplish with our business delegations visit, which is actually bringing people here, business leaders to see things first hand,” he added.

The Kurdistan Region and Iraq are emerging from a costly war with the Islamic State group (ISIS), which seized large swathes of territory in the summer of 2014. Many cities were devastated in the battle to retake these territories.

The jihadist group was declared territorially defeated in Iraq in December 2017. Much of the territory previously ruled by ISIS lie in ruins and in dire need of reconstruction and basis services.

Iraq is trying to attract foreign companies to invest in the country. American firms want to expand trade with Erbil and Baghdad, which are slowly rebuilding relations after the Region’s referendum for independence from Iraq in late 2017 led to a brief armed conflict and embargoes on the Region’s trade, travel, and diplomacy. 

The crisis further damaged the Region’s economy, already wounded by budget cuts and a financial crisis. 

The improvement in relations between the KRG and the federal government in Baghdad has created good conditions for foreign companies to invest, Lutes said.

“We know that Iraq and the Kurdistan Region of Iraq are at a pivotal moment. We think it is an opportune time for American companies to be looking to come in to invest and do business,” the trade official said.

“We are hopeful that we will see not only more energy companies, but more healthcare companies, more IT companies, more agriculture companies, running that range of the economy coming here and looking at those types of commercial and investment opportunities.”

Lutes said US companies can also help modernize Iraq’s antiquated financial sector.

“Modernizing the banking system in Iraq is one of the most important things that we as the business community, as a business advocacy organization, should be focusing on,” he said.

Information / Private ..

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraqi security chief Sabah al-Ukaili warned Friday of an American plan to bring about a coup in Iraq by plotting with some security leaders, such as the commander of Anbar operations, Mahmoud al-Falahi, saying the results of the investigation would open the door to further inquiries.

"The American side's entry of more than 100 new vehicles to the Ain al-Assad base in Al-Anbar through the border port of Trebil coming from Jordan, in addition to the expansion of that base, raises many questions," he said.

"The government has all the evidence and legal authority to remove US troops from the country, especially after the need for American presence in Iraqi territory has disappeared," he said.

"The US side is preparing the American side for a coup in Iraq by means of contacts and conspiracy with some security leaders in different parts of the country, " said al-Ukaili .

He added that "proving the validity of the registration of the farmer is leading to the investigation of calls and other recordings, proving the involvement of some political leaders and security in the conspiracy against Iraq with the American side." End 25 n

Foreign Minister Mike Pompeo is seeking to make the withdrawal from his country's embassy in Baghdad always, according to an exclusive report by Foreign Policy magazine quoting sources at the State Department.

Pompeo ordered in May a partial evacuation of diplomats from the US embassy in Iraq amid escalating tensions with Iran.

Now, many foreign officials say they have been told that reducing the number of embassy staff will always be a reality, a step that could leave only a few of the staff of the US embassy to take on important tasks, such as confronting Iran on the diplomatic front. In the short term, In the Washington area without an embassy to return to.

A spokesman for the State Department said that the description of the withdrawal was "inaccurate" and said "no decision has been made on permanent staffing levels but a review of staff is under way."

But three other officials from the ministry said on condition of anonymity that the staffing levels at the Baghdad embassy, reached after last May's evacuation, were treated as a de facto permanent ceiling for Foreign Ministry staff in Iraq.

"They have already made a political decision to not return these people," a senior ministry official familiar with the internal deliberations told the magazine.

"But they do not actually describe it as a withdrawal, they just say they are reviewing the departure order."

However, only a small part of its staff are directly engaged in basic diplomatic functions, including political, economic and public diplomacy officials, and the majority are contractors, security personnel or officials from other federal agencies , Including the intelligence community.

After the partial evacuation, two officials told the magazine that the embassy had fewer than 15 foreign officials who had been directly involved in basic diplomatic missions.

The State Department spokesman did not confirm or deny the number of remaining employees, saying the foreign policy was not to disclose staffing levels for security reasons.

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - The Babylonian movement responded Thursday to US sanctions imposed on four Iraqi figures, including the movement's secretary-general, Ryan Chaldean, and was surprised by the inclusion of those who fought terrorism on the terrorism list.

"It is not surprising that the United States of America has included the Secretary-General of the Movement of Babylon, which represents the minorities and that has suffered an oppressive step in the list of unjust US sanctions," the movement said, noting that "this decision is certainly came after hostile introductions and campaigns led by the media supported By Washington against the Christians who fought and urged. " 
 
"Christians today defend their areas within the Iraqi armed forces, their brothers in the homeland and after the terror of their women and their money and the killing of their men, if they receive a stab from a country that claims to respect human rights, fights terrorism and protects minorities," she said.
 
"At the time we express our condemnation of this decision, we say that the Christian component and the other components of Iraq in all its colors and in all regions of Mesopotamia stand side by side with their leader who fought terrorism and contributed with the rest of the Iraqi components to achieve victory and liberate the areas of Chaldean Chaldean, Never like such provocative decisions ". 
 
"It is strange to include those who fight terrorism on the terrorist lists and leave the terrorists at large and be hosted in Washington itself," the group said.

"This is where legal proceedings are being taken against them because they are crimes against Iraqis and their perpetrators, Iraqis and Iraqi territory, and they are referred to the Iraqi courts and tried according to the Iraqi Penal Code No. 111 of 1969," he said.

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - 
US sanctions have included seven Iraqi leaders, a parliamentary deputy said on Saturday. 
"The leaks talked about seven political and Sunni names, including the US sanctions, but the US Treasury announced only four," said a member of Parliament, adding that "the Speaker of Parliament Mohammed Halabousi briefed them on the information after returning from Washington at the end of last March." 
"The expectation is that there are other names from the province of Anbar, Baghdad and Kirkuk to other figures considered by Washington as new Iranian tools within liberated cities and regions of Iraq, and support them in the parliamentary and military elections." 
"There will be other unexpected names, but of course they will not have a clear or even tangible impact, similar to similar sanctions imposed on Iraqis in earlier times in the past two years," he said.
"The United States is monitoring Iranian expansion and influence in Sunni-dominated cities in northern and western Iraq," he said. "The second is that it strengthens the other Sunni political group or camp that is opposed to rapprochement with Iran." 
However, "the Iranian veto on Iraqi political figures is much stronger than the US sanctions, in terms of effectiveness on the Iraqi arena." 
The US Treasury Department announced that Ahmed al-Jubouri, former governor of Salahadin, Mosul governor Nawfal al-Aakoub, Christian leader of Babylonian tribes in the Nineveh Plain Ryan Chaldean, and leader of Shabak al-Shabak, the leader of the network component and the promise of al-Qadu, US sanctions. The four are among the most influential figures in the provinces of Nineveh, Salah al-Din and parts of Kirkuk and Diyala.

      2019/07/23 12:31 Number of readings 288 Section: Iraq     The US Treasury explains the reasons for the inclusion of four Iraqis on the sanctions list
      BAGHDAD (Reuters) - The US Treasury Department revealed on Tuesday (July 23, 2019) that four Iraqi Iraqis, Ahmed al-Jubouri, Nofal al-Aakoub, Qado and Rayyan Chaldeani, were included in the US sanctions against human rights violators accused of corruption.
      "The United States has taken action against four people in Iraq who are involved in serious human rights abuses or corruption," said Seagal Mandler, Treasury Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, in a statement to the US Department of State.
      "We will continue to hold accountable those associated with gross human rights violations, including the persecution of religious minorities and corrupt officials who take advantage of their public confidence to store their pockets and hold power at the expense of their citizens," he said.
      "There have been many actions related to the corruption and ill-treatment of these punishable individuals in areas where persecuted religious communities are struggling to recover from the atrocities committed by Da'ash, so today's sanctions demonstrate their solidarity with all Iraqis who oppose corruption and human rights abuses committed by employees And affirms the administration's commitment to support the restoration of oppressed religious communities in Iraq. "
      The Treasury Department revealed the reasons for listing the four as follows:
      Ryan Chaldean
      "Ryan Chaldean was sanctioned for being a foreign person responsible for, or accomplices to, or directly or indirectly involved in serious human rights violations," the ministry said.
      She noted that "Chaldean is the commander of the 50th Brigade. In May 2018, a video was distributed among Iraqi civil society organizations for human rights, in which Chaldean was cut off by a handcuffed detainee."
      "The 50th Brigade is the main obstacle to the return of internally displaced persons to the Nineveh Plain and has regularly looted homes in Batnaya, which is struggling to recover from brutal rule," she said.
      "The 50th Brigade reportedly seized and sold farmland illegally and accused the local population of intimidating, blackmailing and harassing women."
      Kado promised
      "Sanctions have been imposed on Qadu's promise that he is a foreigner, a leader or an entity official, including any government entity, who has been involved in / or committed serious human rights violations with respect to the leader or the official," the US Department said.
      She noted that "Qado is the commander of Brigade 30. The brigade has extracted funds from the population around the city of Bartala, in the Nineveh Plain, through extortion, illegal arrests and kidnapping."
      "Major General 30 has often detained people without warrants or fraudulent orders, and imposed arbitrary customs duties at checkpoints," she said.
      According to the ministry, "local people claim that the 30th Brigade is responsible for committing horrendous crimes, including physical intimidation, extortion, theft, kidnapping and rape."
      Nofal Hammadi Sultan
      On the former governor of Ninewa, the ministry said, "Nofal Hammadi has been sentenced to the Sultan as a foreigner / current or former government official, or person acting for or on behalf of that official, who is responsible for, or who is involved in, Directly or indirectly in corruption, including the misappropriation of state assets or the confiscation of private assets for personal gain or corruption related to government contracts, extraction of natural resources or bribery. "
      "The Sultan is the former governor of Nineveh After the ferry accident in Mosul, the center of Nineveh, which killed about 100 people, the Iraqi parliament removed the Sultan from office."
      "The ferry, loaded with five times more than its capacity, was transporting families to an island on the Tigris when it sank," he said, adding that the Iraqi authorities issued an arrest warrant for the former governor, who fled shortly after the incident.
      "In a letter addressed to members of parliament after the ferry incident, Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi accused the Sultan of negligence and dereliction of duty and said there was evidence that the former governor was misusing the funds and misusing his authority."
      "On March 27, 2019, the Ninewa investigation court said al-Akeb and several other officials were suspected of misuse of their powers and waste of public money." The Sultan has faced widespread corruption allegations since 1994. "

      Ahmed al-Jubouri "Abu Mazen"
      "Ahmed al-Jubouri was penalized as a foreigner who is a current or former government employee, a person acting on behalf of or in charge of or in charge of / or an accomplice in / who has direct or indirect participation Directly involved in corruption, including the misappropriation of state assets or the confiscation of private assets for personal gain or corruption related to government contracts, extraction of natural resources or bribery. "
      She said that "Jubouri, also known as Abu Mazen, is the former ruler of Salahuddin in Iraq, and the current member of parliament, who participated in corruption."
      Al-Jubouri was dismissed as a governor and sentenced to prison in June 2017 after being convicted of misuse of power and federal funds and taking over land for personal use.
      "Jabouri is known to protect his personal interests by absorbing Iranian-backed agents operating outside the control of the state," she said.
