5-30-2012 SWFloridaGuy: Jaafari met with UN representatives of Martin Kobler today in Iraq. The two sides exchanged views on the current political situation and the UN activated their supporting role to push the political process forward. They discussed practical matters and addressed the political crisis. Expressing their concern that THIS CRISIS is what is preventing meeting the ECONOMIC NEEDS of the people.
The UN supports a quick solution to solve this problem and made it clear that the United Nations will help in anyway they can. Kobler said they are not there to intervene, but to serve and help Iraq and the attention to the needs of the Iraqi people. Jafaari said "Iraq is a rich country.
Challenges still exist but there is a serious national will to bypass these challenges with the use of the UN and they stand by Iraq to traverse these challenges and push the political process towards the future." This is a great sign.
There is a reason we see this support from outside entities pressuring Iraq to find a resolution. It's not because they are concerned for Iraqi citizens as they claim, (although they will surely benefit as well) it's because there are many powerful governments and agencies anxious to profit from Iraq's wealth.
For Iraq to move forward economically, they must first move forward politically and are being encouraged (instructed) on how to do so.
