Friday News Summaries and Commentaries
Working on the news summaries playing catch up to time being down....let's see what the media chooses to throw in front of us today.
After threats of withdrawal of ministers and coalition forces ..alebadi Jubouri discuss national reconciliation
From how this article reads there may be political blocs who believe they can hold threats over PM Abadi's head for not pushing forward as originally planned with the National Reconciliation meeting......
Abadi in meeting with the Speaker of Parliament Jubouri are now again revisiting this effort....however, one must look at the "demands" being verbalized by this one MP....are they in actuality realistic....claiming that Abadi has not implemented even 1 percent of pledges in a number of areas....
When I see this kind of extreme prejudice in numbers I start to back pedal away from the claims as being too far fetched.....they are being made typically from an emotional standpoint often without basis....
I would challenge that Abadi's efforts and the efforts of his government have been exemplary within the confines of what he was dealt to work with upon taking office.
Abadi's office: the oil agreement with the province can not be undone and views around him express juridical
PM Abadi is sticking with the agreement made and signed with the Kurdistan Region.....irregardless of any differences in political opinion of the agreement by some....the agreement was drawn up, signed by both parties, approved by the Cabinet, and the House of Representatives....it stands as written, and will become a part of the 2015 budget....
Any person has the right to make a political point regarding such an agreement but that alone does not require any change to be made....it would seem that some members of the State of Law Coalition are deathly afraid the Kurds will get more than they are supposed to.
Parliamentary Finance reveal borrow money from the bank and the International Monetary bridge the budget deficit
One member of the Finance Committee believes that borrowing from the World Bank and perhaps the IMF will take care of budget shortfalls and keep Iraq out of trouble....what I say is this....it hasn't happened yet...the borrowing of any money....will be keeping watch to see what if anything happens in this direction.
Chairman of the parliament's "information": presidencies meeting will be held the end of next week
They are talking about a meeting "next week".....I'm believing this may be a meeting to talk about details associated with a National Reconciliation type of meeting....to me this is something that can't just be "thrown together" it will take some planning and I see this upcoming meeting as for that purpose.....we will be watching this for greater progress of course....it is apparent they are placing a high degree of importance on such a meeting.
A senior Japanese official to visit Iraq next month
More foreign economic committee activity being activated in the near future, this time with Japan....this comes after a meeting between the Japanese ambassador to Iraq met with the Iraqi Foreign Minister yesterday.....look for Japan's continued support of Iraq against terrorism and also support from a humanitarian standpoint.
Conscious / French Ambassador to Jaafari: near send trainers to Iraq and hold an economic conference in Paris
The French ambassador to Iraq is also talking of added support to Iraq in the form of more military trainers to help the Iraqi forces ready themselves to better fight the DAASH terrorists within Iraq.
Hungary’s MOL Group to invest heavily in Iraqi Kurdistan: CEO
CEO of Hungary MOL.....will be making large investments in the Kurdistan area in the near future....he believes that oil prices will once again rise and readjust to the $80-100 per barrel area.....and as both a downstream and upstream oil operator is willing to make commitments today to insure their future in the right areas of the world going forward...namely the Kurdistan.
Economic parliamentary: the government was heading towards privatization and private sector involvement with the ministries
This is some serious talk about the private sector within Iraq coming of age and stepping up to the plate to help with the economic distress they currently face.....a big meeting is being planned for the 4th of next month to push this along and get the ball rolling by blending efforts of several ministries together for the greater harmony of Iraq's private sector piece of the economy.
A few tidbits for the day....their Holy Day remember.....so we shall await the pitching of any further morsels for us throughout the day.
