Iraq in Discussions with IMF
Posted on 07 April 2015 (Budget, Debts, International Monetary Fund) (IMF)
By John Lee.
Iraqi Finance Minister Hoshiyar Zebari has confirmed that Iraq is discussing its financial situation with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Speaking on the sidelines of a conference in Kuwait on Tuesday, Zebari did not elaborate on what aid might be provided, but according to the report from Reuters he has previously said Iraq plans to raise $1.8 billion this year by using Iraq’s Special Drawing Rights at the IMF, which would be different than an emergency loan programme.
He said “Iraq is not bankrupt – we have plenty of assets we can use … [But] we have a serious cash flow problem,” adding that Iraq’s financial squeeze was “very serious“.

NO INITIAL INDICATIONS OF TERRORISM IN WASHINGTON, D.C., POWER OUTAGES - U.S. GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS
*STATE DEPT SAYS PEPCO EXPECTS TO RESTORE POWER IN 1-2 HOURS
The utility firm Pepco is currently investigating a Washington-wide black-out that has plunged The White House, State Department, The US Capitol, D.C. Metro, and even Oprah's TV Stage into darkness...Ironically, the outage occurred minutes after Rand Paul commented that "the time has come to take away the power from Washington D.C..." Has anyone seen Kim Jong-Un today?
Q. [Does anyone have a take on the RV timing and Abadi's scheduled meeting with Obama in the US on the 14th?]
BGG there are a number of factors behind Abadi's visit to the US. Were we to fully grasp the depth of that influence we might just have a peek at a potential time frame.
Q. [So no RV April 30th?]
BGG that is an interesting date. The 50's [notes] won't be valid anymore.
BGG "...the Council of Ministers took an important decision to speed up the granting of visas to investors to no more than 72 hours, ..."
Very curious set of events. the big headlines in the ME were - the "fast tracking" of investor Visas... Uh - might I ask - just who are these mystery investors needing immediate access - and why do they need such access...and two - the Kurds are apparently getting /or have gotten paid 455 million in USD. where did they get that money...or are getting that money?

Iraq in talks with IMF, no decision yet
April 08, 2015 - 12:00:00 am
Iraq’s Finance Minister Hoshyar Zebari (left) and Iraqi Central Bank’s governor Sinan Al Shabibi attend a meeting of Arab Financial Institutions yesterday in Kuwait City.
KUWAIT: Iraq is discussing its financial situation with the International Monetary Fund but has made no decision to request emergency assistance, Iraqi Finance Minister Hoshiyar Zebari said yesterday.
Asked by reporters if Iraq was in touch with the IMF, he said: “Well we are actually discussing with the IMF especially — they have some emergency assistance. We haven’t decided to resort to them. At the moment, we are not that bad.”
The plunge in oil prices since last year is ravaging Iraq’s state finances. The government has projected a budget deficit of roughly $21bn this year and it has been building up debts to the companies developing its oil fields.
Speaking on the sidelines of a financial conference in Kuwait, Zebari did not elaborate on what aid might be provided by the IMF. He has previously said Iraq plans to raise $1.8bn this year by using Iraq’s Special Drawing Rights at the IMF, which would be different than an emergency loan program.
“Iraq is not bankrupt — we have plenty of assets we can use,” he said yesterday. But he also said, “We have a serious cash flow problem,” adding that Iraq’s financial squeeze was “very serious”.

Live to your highest standard, and it will pay off in ways you cannot fully appreciate or anticipate now. Live to your highest standard, and feel the power as it accumulates in the form of confidence, competence, wisdom, patience and true fulfillment.
Listen carefully to what others say, but never let anyone’s shortsightedness bring you down. Find new energy and enthusiasm every day, knowing that you are giving your best to life.
