chattels: KRG to discuss new oil agreement with Baghdad By RUDAW

chattels: ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — Kurdistan Regional Government spokesperson Safin Dizayee said Tuesday that Kurdistan region Prime Minister Nechirvan Barzani is scheduled to visit Baghdad next week for talks on oil and budget shares in the 2016 Iraqi budget.

“Baghdad will not send the Kurdistan budget share unless the KRG hands over its oil to the Iraqi State Organization for Marketing Oil (SOMO),” Dizayee told Rudaw. Erbil does not want to use all its trump cards with Baghdad, said Dizayee, who believes the previous Baghdad-Erbil agreements have become part of the past, and “this time both sides will focus on new agreements.”

chattels: According to the Erbil-Baghdad 2015 budget agreement, Baghdad must provide the KRG $10 billion, but only $2 billion dollars has been sent to Erbil so far this year, according to Dizayee. The Kurdistan region sells on average 600,000 barrels of oil per day (bpd), according to Dizayee.

chattels: The Iraqi government held an extraordinary session on Sunday passing the Iraqi budget bill for 2016 with a budget of $91 billion and a deficit of almost $23 billion.

In the bill, the Kurdistan region’s 17 percent budget share has been approved on condition the KRG should export 550,000 bpd though SOMO to the world market, according to a statement by the Iraqi government following the session.

BOBBY: Chattels. ……. did you happen to catch the post on recaps ……. entitled are conditions conductive for an rv?

chattels: Sounds like a repeat of the 2015 budget agreement

chattels: ‹@BOBBY› No sir, just getting home and been covered up with work today

chattels: ‹@BOBBY› I will look now

BOBBY: Chattels. …. its a 4 part post……. let me know what you think…….. surprised they printed it

chattels: ” no central authority “decides” the value of the currency. There are open markets where the currency is allowed to trade and the value of the currency is whatever is decided by these markets.”

chattels: ” with the collapse of global oil prices and the cost of fighting ISIL having significant detrimental effects of a deficit balance of trade and a huge deficit in the Iraq government’s budget, we are increasingly of late getting comments that a devaluation of the IQD is being considered ”

chattels: ” This is the exact situation we have seen in-country, where the Street Rate of the IQD is significantly worse than the international rate being defended by the CBI. There cannot long exist a great disparity between in-country street rates and international official exchange rates. ”

chattels: ” the international rate being defended by the CBI. ” = a cost to the CBI / Iraq and drain upon it’s reserves, IMO

chattels: “The combination of the ISIS insurgency and low oil prices are producing an economic shock unprecedented in Iraq’s troubled history. The ongoing conflict will require a sharp rise in security expenditures at the same time that government oil export revenues are collapsing,

forcing the government into deficit spending. This deficit spending, combined with a loss in reserves from the Central Bank of Iraq, calls into question the much-vaunted stability of the Iraqi dinar.

chattels: recent data from the International Monetary Fund support the view that Iraq’s fiscal and monetary situation is deteriorating. At the same time that oil export earnings are declining, GoI security-related dollar imports have increased dramatically.

One effect has been on fiscal reserves held at the DFI, which have fallen from almost $18 billion at the end of 2012, and $6.5 billion at the end of 2013, to about $4 billion at the end of November 2014 (IMF Press Release 14/560, 9 December 2014).

Equally worrisome is the drop in the country’s international reserves. From $77 billion at the end of 2013, the international reserves held by the CBI fell to about $67 billion at the end of November 2014. This is only the second year-over-year fall in international reserves in the last decade.

chattels: Excellent analysis, IMO

BOBBY: Chattels. …. was surprised they printed it

chattels: ‹@BOBBY› Very sobering

BOBBY: Chattels. …. not exactly the any day now posting

chattels: Official: Peshmerga to take part in battle for Mosul By RUDAW

chattels: ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — A high-ranking Peshmerga official declared Wednesday that the Peshmerga will take part in an anticipated battle for Mosul. “Mosul is the heart of ISIS and it must be taken out,” Jabar Yawar, the chief of staff of the Peshmerga ministry, told Rudaw, saying that the Peshmerga are ready to fight alongside the coalition to push ISIS out of Mosul.

Yawar claimed that “the Kurdistan region has shown its willingness and will participate in the battle for Mosul.” “The liberation of Mosul will have a significant impact for the security of Kurdistan and is also in the interest of the whole Iraq,” he continued.

Without Baghdad, the Kurdistan region will not unilaterally wage war against ISIS in Mosul, therefore “the Kurdistan region will have an agreement with Baghdad on how to launch the assault, and the Peshmerga will coordinate the details of military plans alongside the US-led coalition, tribal militants and Iraqi joint forces,” Yawar explained.

He also rejected claims that the Peshmerga will join the battle for Hawija. “We have no plan to fight ISIS in Hawija, because they are far away from our borders and we have no mutual interests with any party to take part in possible attacks on ISIS in Hawija,” he concluded.

chattels: On Tuesday, Raed Jabouri, the current governor of Salahadin province, announced that Iraqi forces backed by the Shiite Hashd al-Shaabi militia succeeded in recapturing the town of Baiji and the Albu Jawar area from ISIS.

The Shiite militia also claimed that its forces were cleaning up roads in the area of ISIS landmines. The government has claimed victory in Baiji several times in the past months, but the reports have been unfounded. ISIS suicide attacks have halted the advances of Iraqi forces, according to reports.

Baiji, located in Salahadin province and roughly 210 kilometers from Baghdad, fell to ISIS in 2014.   chattels: rudaw.net/english/middlee…

chattels: Washington DC—The United States considers Masoud Barzani the legitimate President of the Kurdistan Region while discussions continue among Kurdish parties to resolve the issue of the region’s presidency, State Department said Tuesday, answering Rudaw’s Namo Abdulla.

“While these discussions are ongoing, he [Barzani] is still fulfilling that role and so we – he is considered to be the president while this is ongoing,” said State Department Spokesperson John Kirby in a daily briefing. “But ultimately, these are decisions that Kurdish politicians have to work through,” he added.
