HI GOOD EVENING . THERE WAS A GOOD ARTICLE TODAY WHICH I POSTED BELOW.
Foreign Relations Committee welcomes the upcoming visit of Kuwaiti Prime Minister; The release of CH VII means open trade and stronger economy
I will like to address some points that are discussed on this article.
1. It clearly said that border issue was resolved by agreements
2. I quoted" we are now in the process to close all its files and then return the country to Chapter VI, which means the return of Iraq natural to surroundings International. As i have explained several times this was the preferred recommendation of Ban ki Moon when he issued his report on December 2012. His preferred choice was to move Iraq from ch 7 to ch 6. Also the Secretary of the State Mr . Kerry made the same statement about ch 6 and I quoted" There’s still a few outstanding issues on the borders. Those are – border demarcation. Those are almost complete, so we’re close to being able to close out the Chapter 7 issues between Iraq and Kuwait and move to Chapter 6.As stated above the removal from ch 7 to 6 will let Iraq to return to its previous International Status.

3.The other paragraph which i found meaningful is this: Chapter VII and the extent of negative and positive of this chapter, saying, “This is a chapter international agreement that places restrictions on countries that fall within Tailth, including the method of trade and exchange Commercial transactions in many materials as we so far barred from importing a lot of materials such as lead and pencils and medical equipment related to the lives of citizens, “noting that” getting rid of this chapter means opening horizons in front of open trade and economy stronger.
IT CLEARLY STATED THAT CH 7 PLACES RESTRICTIONS ON COUNTRIES SUBJECTED TO IT INCLUDING THE METHOD OF TRADE AND EXCHANGE COMMERCIAL TRANSACTIONS . OF COURSE THAT IS JUST A FEW OF THE SANCTIONS THAT COULD BE DONE UNDER THIS CHAPTER. AND THE BEST PART OF THE ABOVE PARAGRAPH IS THE LAST SENTENCE WHICH SAID THAT GETTING RID OF THIS CH 7 MEANS OPENING HORIZONS FOR OPEN TRADE AND A STRONGER ECONOMY. IT MEANS THAT IN ORDER FOR IRAQ TO MEET THEIR INDUSTRIAL, AGRICULTURAL, INFRASTRUCTURE , AND OTHER RELEVANT GOALS THEY NEED TO GET RID OF THIS CHAPTER.
NOW THE VISIT OF THE KPM IS RELEVANT BECAUSE IT IS A KEY ELEMENT TO LIFT IRAQ FROM CH 7. ON THIS ARTICLE IT SAID AND I QUOTED:
Prime Minister of Kuwait Jaber Al-Mubarak announced yesterday on readiness to visit Baghdad but awaiting an invitation the Iraqi side, pointing out that his visit to Iraq will yield for resolving all outstanding issues between the two countries.
SO IMO THE KPM VISIT TO IRAQ WILL BE TO SIGN OFF THE FINAL PROTOCOL OF THE PENDING ISSUES AND BILATERAL AGREEMENTS WHICH AT THE SAME TIME WILL LET IRAQ TO BE MOVED FROM CH 7 TO CH 6. THIS VISIT COULD BE ANYTIME AS STATED BY THE KPM. HE IS READY FOR IT. A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO HE ALSO SAID THAT HE WILL BE ABLE TO BE THERE THE SAME DAY OF THE INVITATION.
ON MARCH 19 THERE WAS AN ARTICLE WHICH INDICATED THAT IRAQ WAS EXPECTED TO BE RELEASED FROM CH 7 DURING APRIL.
IN ADDITION TO THAT BACK ON JANUARY THE EMIR OF KUWAIT EXPRESSED HIS INTENTIONS TO SIGN OFF AND COMPLETE ALL OUTSTANDING ISSUES WITH IRAQ BEFORE MALIKI LEAVE HIS POST (IN THE EVENT THAT IT HAPPENS). SO I UNDERSTAND THEY WILL DO IT BEFORE THE ELECTIONS. PLEASE DON'T BE DISCOURAGED AND KEEP THE FAITH BECAUSE EVERYTHING IS GREAT AND WE ARE IN THE BEST WINDOW FOR THIS RV TO OCCUR.
AS I HAVE SAID PREVIOUSLY WE ARE IN A HIGH ALERT AND IMO THE WORST SCENARIO IS MAY 22.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
