 Iraq recently published new final guidelines stating their intent to be free from money laundering and terrorist interaction.

This allows them to be viewed as a banking system free from a sanctions list upon its implementation.

Iraq is making their final arrangements to work with Turkey through a signed agreement utilizing the Euro and Turkish Lira and the Iraqi Dinar only in their trade exchanges with one another.

“This also comes in the context of regulating trade and external transfer in accordance with sound practices and standards and within the framework of the comprehensive plan pursued by the Central Bank to open multiple channels, outlets and currencies with the aim of maintaining the stability of the financial system and protecting it from risks.”

These statements refer to opening up channels of foreign exchange with each other. It is a declaration of intent to work with multiple channels of foreign exchange among countries.

We already know they have signed a comprehensive agreement with India to work with the UPI system that will incorporate a group of other countries in trading in the dinar only beginning early January.

In the middle of this month, we are expecting the banking managers of Iraq to complete their banking reforms. This will give them just enough time to work with their employees on logistics training in exchanging the Iraqi Dinar only internationally for two weeks.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Commercial ships came under attack Sunday by drones and missiles in the Red Sea and a U.S. warship there opened fire in self-defense as part of an hours-long assault claimed by Yemen’s Houthi rebels, officials said.

The attack potentially marked a major escalation in a series of maritime attacks in the Mideast linked to the Israel-Hamas war as multiple vessels found themselves in the crosshairs of a single Houthi assault for the first time in the conflict.

“We’re aware of reports regarding attacks on the USS Carney and commercial vessels in the Red Sea and will provide information as it becomes available,” the Defense Department told The Associated Press.

The Carney is an Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer that’s already shot down multiple rockets the Houthis have fired toward Israel so far in the war. It wasn’t damaged in the attack and no injuries were reported on board, said a U.S. official who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss early details of a military operation.
