Welcome to dinarupdates.com for Roundtable with Millionday!
Millionday: Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, on Thursday, with US Secretary of State John Kerry of international efforts against "Daash" in Iraq.
And Qalmketb Abadi in a statement received by "tomorrow Press," The recent "met with US Secretary of State, John Kerry, on Thursday, on the sidelines of the meeting of the mini States and the international coalition to fight Daash held in the British capital of London."
Millionday: NOTE -- I SAW THE CAPABILITIES AND I WOULD ASK FOR TO HELP AS WELL == AMAZING
Millionday: AND ANYONE THAT WAS THERE WHEN THAT TOOK PLACE -- AMAZING WORK
Millionday: The statement added that "al-Abadi and Kerry discussed discuss international efforts to combat terrorist organization Daash and the threat of a threat to the world," adding that he "was discussed many issues of common interest."
And looking at the 22-member Alliance (21 countries and the European Union) and the United Nations during this meeting to address the regulation of the Islamic state, known in the media as "Daash", as well as action to be taken in the future in parallel with different paths of efforts to coordinate the efforts.
Millionday: SO THEY OF COURSE ARE TALKING ABOUT HELP TO KEEP TERRORISM OUT AND HELP CONTAIN WITH THE REGULATION OF THE ISLAMIC STATE --
brett: ? Do we think what's going on in the Middle East right now I'll start study Arabia and Yemen going to have any effect on this
brett: With Saudi Arabia animal - Stupid spell check
Millionday: I THINK THAT IRAQ IS GOING TO TRY TO USE IT TO ASK THE COALITION TO COME IN AND TAKE CARE OF IT
Millionday: AS WE KNOW WE HAVE PEOPLE STILL THERE AND THEY HAVE MANY CONTRACTORS SO WHAT HAPPENS WITH THE MILITARY WILL EFFECT THEIR BUDGET WITH CONTRACTS ETC AND THEY MAY BUY MORE WEAPONS ETC
Millionday: THEY ARE HAVING MANY TALKS ABOUT GETTING HELP AT THE SUMMIT
Millionday: I WOULD THINK THEY WOULD BUY NEW AND MORE ADVANCED NOW DUE TO WHAT THEY HAVE
Millionday: January 23 2015 I am honored to be here at the World Economic Forum. These meetings offer opportunities for leaders from government, business, academia and civil society to address our international challenges in an atmosphere of inclusiveness and trust.
In that spirit, I am pleased to be here today with so many of my friends and fellow leaders from neighboring nations. Since I became Prime Minister of Iraq in September,
I have had the opportunity to meet with each of you, and now I appreciate this occasion to meet our counterparts from around the world.
Millionday: NOTE -- THIS IS A HUGE REPORT SO I AM GOING TO BRING SOME OF IT
Millionday: In Iraq, armed conflict threatens our families, our communities and everything we hold dear. As recent events make clear, terrorism imperils all the peoples of the world, whatever our region or religion.
The Iraqi people are on the frontlines of the fight against the best-funded, best-equipped and best-organized terrorists on earth
Today, I have been asked to present “A Vision for Iraq.” My vision includes a coordinated military, political and economic strategy to defeat Daesh.
And I also envision an international effort to rebuild Iraq and reconcile our region, so that, out of our own struggle and suffering, we can set an example for triumphing over terrorism with economic development and social inclusion
Millionday: NOTE -- MONEY ALWAYS TALKS AND IF THE COALITION HAS AN ECONOMIC GAIN IN IRAQ AFTER ALL THAT HAS BEEN SPENT HE IS RIGHT ---TRIUMPHING WITH ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT WOULD BE A ROAD TO TAKE
Millionday: For Iraq, this is the time to ask hard questions and make difficult decisions, not only to defeat Daesh but also to build a unified country, with a functioning democracy that upholds the rule of law,
a streamlined government, decentralized decision-making, and a prosperous economy that offers opportunities for all our people
Millionday: NOTE -- THAT IS MY FAVORITE PART
Millionday: SEE WITH ALL OF THE INFRASTRUCTURE IN THE CONDITION IT IS AND THE MANY CONTRACTS -- THEY NEED ADVANCEMENT IN THEIR REFORMS AS THEY HAVE BEEN SAYING -- TO ATTRACT INVESTMENT -- IT ONLY MAKES LOGICAL SENSE
Millionday: As Prime Minister, I am pursuing a strategy of inter-dependence. Instead of state domination with government commanding the economy and Baghdad dominating the government, the public and private sectors – and the central government and the provinces – will work together in partnership.
For all our challenges, Iraq still brings great strengths to building our future. Our economic fundamentals are strong – one of the world’s largest reserves of oil, an educated population, and rapid growth before the onset of Daesh. Once our current security challenges are overcome, we will fulfill our potential as a business and investment partner.
Millionday: NOTE -- THEY ARE SITTING ON OIL AND LOTS OF IT AND HAVE MANY CONTRACTS AND BUILDING TO BE DONE WITH THE INFRASTRUCTURE
Millionday: NOTE -- SO MUCH MONEY TO BE SPENT FOR MILITARY FIRST
Millionday: IT ONLY MAKES SENSE TO EMPLOY FOR MILITARY AND BUILD IT WITH JOBS AND ALSO REBUILD THE INFRASTRUCTURE
Millionday: THATS HOW OUR COUNTRY GOT BACK ON ITS FEET AFTER AND DURING WORLD WAR 2 -- WITH RAILWAYS ETC BUT NOW THEY ARE MORE COSTLY AND MUCH MORE ADVANCED DUE TO INTERNATIONAL REGULATIONS TO MEET
Txoilman: once our current......dont like the sound of that
Millionday: ONCE OUR CURRENT -- MEANS THAT THEY HAVE TO ADDRESS THEIR EXPENSES ALOT TO DO WITH HELP AND ALSO THEIRS TAKING OUT ISIS AND DAASH
Millionday: NOTE -- THE CONTRACTS WILL BE DIFFERENT EXPENSES AFTER THEY PAY SOME OF THEIR DEBT ETC AND ALSO GET RID OF DAASH
Millionday: I PRAY FOR THEM TO BE RID OF ALL OF THIS ----
Millionday: Only six months ago Daesh was threatening Baghdad, and our future was uncertain. Today, with the support of our neighbors and a coalition of partners, the world has rallied to Iraq, Daesh’s momentum has been halted, and Iraqis are retaking our country.
Despite our economic challenges, the Iraqi people feel an extreme sense of urgency -- and the Government of Iraq feels an extreme sense of responsibility -- to liberate every inch of our territory and every segment of our citizenry from Daesh.
As I said yesterday at a security conference in London, when we ask the world community for more support or faster assistance, our determination does not reflect disappointment with the coalition of countries supporting Iraq but rather the reality that human lives are at stake and we must act as rapidly and as resolutely as we can.
I know that the Iraqi people who are now occupied by Daesh must take the lead in liberating themselves, and our government is doing our part to make this possible.
Millionday: NOTE -- THIS IS A GREAT PRIME MINISTER
Millionday: OR AT LEAST HE APPEARS TO BE
Millionday: MY FAVORITE PART >> When our new government took office in September, we promised to pursue national reconciliation, military and governmental reform, economic and social reconstruction, and regional outreach. We are moving forward on every front.
Millionday: We are also restoring relationships with the Sunni tribes that are based in areas now dominated by Daesh. I have met personally with representatives from the provinces of Anbar,
Salahuddin and Mosul, reinforcing air support, increasing arms supplies, and providing for food deliveries. Now many of these tribes are fighting alongside – and not against – the Iraqi Security Forces.
We will never win on the battlefront if we are crippled by corruption on the home-front.
We are fighting corruption and incompetence in civil and military institutions. We have removed about two dozen generals, as well as 24 senior officers of the Ministry of Interior.
Millionday: NOTE -- THEY HAD SOME THAT WERE IN THE MILITARY AS THEY TRIED BEFORE OR TALKED ABOUT I SHOULD SAY --- THAT WERE FOR TERRORISTIC ACTIVITY ACCORDING TO WHAT HE IS SAYING
Millionday: AND THEY HAVE GOTTEN RID OF THEM AS WE SAW
Millionday: Our government will spare no effort to ensure that there will be no more “ghost soldiers”on the payroll, no more corrupt commanding officers, no more battalions fleeing from the battlefields, and no more corrupt civilians enriching themselves while our soldiers sacrifice their lives and limbs.
In order to reinforce the rule of law and protect personal freedoms, I have issued an executive order to speed up the release of detainees who have not been charged and established a central registry of those who have been incarcerated.
I have met with Iraqi journalists and dropped all pending lawsuits against journalists on behalf of the Prime Minister’s Office.
And, because our national defense must build up respect for the rule of law, we are bringing all armed groups under state control.
Josie: MD: If you will permit a comment, for those that have not googled the entire text of Abadi speech or watched speech via YouTube, (his english is impeccable! and only 15 minutes long) Speech is EXACTLY what we Dinarians have waited so long to hear and will reinforce that we are in a STRONG investment
Millionday: JOSIE GREAT POINT AND SO RIGHT A GREAT INVESTMENT IS WHAT THEY WANT TO PROMOTE -- VERY IMPORTANT
Dovi: great speech and interview after
Millionday: RIGHT AND VERY ENCOURAGING --
Millionday: First, we have been forced to turn to new sources of revenue, including taxes. We are re-emphasizing the need for customers to pay for basic services such as electricity, water and roads through our respective ministries.
Second, we have also had to explore alternative industries to grow the economy, build businesses, generate jobs and raise revenues.
Once we were one of the most diversified economies in OPEC, and we will build a diverse economy again. That is why we are investing in agriculture, petrochemicals and other industries.
Millionday: NOTE -- SEE WHAT I MEAN -- THIS IS VERY POSITIVE
Comments may be made at the end of Part 2 Thank You
