Don961: Trump’s advisor: Iraq has asked the World Bank for financial assistance and Washington will help it in that
Policy 09/20/2020 22:26 2354 Baghdad today – Baghdad
Gabriel Somma, a member of the advisory office, revealed to President Donald Trump, today, Tuesday, that Iraq submitted a request to the World Bank for financial assistance, while noting that Washington will work to achieve this.
Soma said in his speech to the program (Shortest Roads) , which is presented by Dr. Nabil Jassem on the Sharqiya channel , that “Iraq asked the World Bank for financial assistance and the United States is a major contributor to the World Bank and will help it in that, because the reputation of Iraq in financial terms is very good.”
He added, “Washington wants to know what the Iraqi government wants from it. Will it decide to leave the American forces or keep them with a formula of understanding and specific roles?”
He pointed out that “Iranian influence in Iraq threatens the security of Iraq, and the threat of ISIS still exists with 10,000 ISIS elements, and there is a threat to Iraq by militias that receive money, weapons and orders from Iran.
“And he stated, “At the present time, I do not think that there is a trend towards the exit of American forces from Iraq, because of the danger of ISIS in the region.” linjk
MilitiaMan: Let’s not forget the timing of this as today and tomorrow there is SFA on the table, and subsequent meetings thereafter. The above suggests that by the USA being a major contributor of the World Bank the USA has significant clout if you will to help Iraq with financial assistance.
Let’s remember the agreement the CBI has with the World Bank that was noted on the CBIs website a few weeks ago during the time when the CBI was up and down on the internet. The article was only up for a very short period of time on one day. I have not seen is again since.. The article reflected an agreement between the World Bank and the CBI. The agreement was for the World Bank to have a managerial relationship with regard to the CBIs assets.
Money is an asset, bonds are assets, gold and precious metals are assets, in ground commodities are all assets, etc.. They’ll need management and the expertise that comes from the World Bank. Managing assets under the guise of USA protection from terrorists is a fairly big stick to yield.
Having upwards of 10,000 ISIS elements IS SERIOUS!! It requires help and the USA can help with that and from the looks of all the countries that showed up, it appears safe to say the new PM has had negotiations and now the dialogue in respect to the problem solving begins.
The countries wouldn’t be showing up if there were not an agreement(s) that was/were satisfactory to them all prior to showing up, in that the USA was not going any were soon to give pause for them to pour in with that many elements running around..
They suggest that Iraq has a good reputation regarding finance? Well the CBI has had awards and Alak has been tapped to go to the AMF as head honcho!! Lol They have maintained inflation to a large degree quite well. So by that, we could agree..
To that point about finance the tools used to support the IQD / USD exchange rate to be maintained within 2% real close for long periods of time shows that with the tools that have been used and the help of the World Bank to manage Iraq’s assets now and into the future shows that the foundation is finished and the final asset will be placed for all to see! A new bright and shiny IQD!!
Exiting times we are in watching the birth of a new currency to Global Markets be born.. let’s make sure there are plenty of cigars to pass around right? Lol imo ~ MM
Pattycakes77: I thought i share this.

He added that “we are now working to confront these accumulations and solve them through the cooperation of all to cross this economic crisis and enter a new economic space.”
And that “the economic crisis occurred because of the decline in oil revenues very low, and even after the relative rise, the government will import 3 trillion dinars during one month.”
Allawi pointed out that “the expenses of the state during each month amount to 7 trillion dinars, and that the deficit that occurs during each month is 5 trillion and we are working to find a way to provide it.”
He expected, Minister of Finance, that “oil prices rise in the next stage, but this rise cannot cover the deficit in the budget.”
He pointed out that “Iraq suffers from three basic problems, the most prominent of which is the financial crisis that occurs and how to deal with it without affecting the middle classes of income and the poor.” Processed. ”
