This is the first purchase by the central bank since August of 2012, when it bought 23.9 tonnes of gold.

[clay] its part of the WTO charter
[kimberly1] respectfully, I'm not sure how this works because I listen and don't talk .. but to answer Jtank I think that Exxon threat is more of a pressure threat than not ... to force the hand on the RV
[terry37] They have to have a international currency with value before they can get into the WTO.

[dkwsly] Thanks fishheads.
[milndollarbabe] In order for Iraq to join the WTO: “The WTO is interested in full commercial matters, therefore, join Iraq in the current phase requires activation of the task of economic laws, such as the customs tariff law, and the Banking Act, and the law of oil and gas, and other important economic laws.”
Looks like they are not quiet there yet. Maybe with the big push from the Council of Ministries and Parliament to get some things done....we will start to see some of these soon.
Dr. Kamal Al-Basri resolve the debate over Iraq’s accession to the WTO, stressing that Iraq’s entry into the organization can not materialize without the rule of law. http://translate.google. ··· D%3D5230
