[flashing] USA, UK attempt to keep Iraq under Seventh Chapter of UN's Charter, says MP Baghdad (AIN) –MP, Rafea Abdul Jabbar, of the Parliamentary Foreign Relations Committee accused that the United States of America and the United Kingdom are attempting to keep Iraq under the Seventh Chapter of the UN's Charter. Speaking to All Iraq News Agency (AIN), he stated "There are serious intentions by Kuwait to settle the pending issues with Iraq which is an evidence of improving the mutual relations between the two
[flashing] countries to move Iraq from the Seventh Chapter to the Sixth one." "The government and the Foreign Ministry are serious in dealing with Kuwait and Kuwait expressed its readiness to settle all the pending issues," he added, noting that "Kuwait considers developing the economic relations with Iraq better than the other Gulf countries because the Iraqi economy and marketing highly serve Kuwait."

[treasure4e] it going to be a good day
[flashing] my thoughts still the same we are waiting for the border agreement . Do i believe that. Well Iraq has been trying to play with UN, Kuwait U SA etc.
[flashing] Iraq has tried to imply that agreement with Kuwait Airways is enough to exit them from Chapter 7, and Kuwait has told them no. They have to meet all the obligations of which the most significant is the border. They can handle the ones related to missing properties and missing persons under ch 6,
[flashing] but they need to meet all other obligations before this can happen.
[okrocks] flashing yes, like an RV... ty
[jamajacks] flashing What specifically is in dispute on the border issue?
[flashing] jamajacks they have not make a formal agreement or comitment on that and this could represent a threat for the security and peace of kuwait and neighbors countries .
[flashing] okrocks imo the agreemnt is done and we r just waiting for the protocol. otherwise they will be held under ch 7. UN will meet on dec 31 to take a decision on that.
[flashing] ck this: between Kuwait touched attention Iraq out of under Chapter VII and that Baghdad would not mind to have it with “UNAMI” or appoint a coordinator another, stressing that “unless in Iraq with its obligations, particularly with regard to the maintenance of border markers, Kuwait will not talk
[jamajacks] flashing So, it has nothing to do with the boundary lines, but all about border security?
[flashing] about his departure from under Chapter VII, “noting that Iraq linking things subject progress on Kuwait Airways,” explaining that Kuwait does not link the issue of Kuwait Airways with international Iraq fulfill its obligations as a bilateral issue between the two countries …
[flashing] jamajacks both
[2012jesus] flashing thats all done for a while
[raven] flashing This is a moving target...one Guru said a week ago it is done...I never heard her state a date so firmly...I just hope we are not months away...
[flashing] 2012jesus sorry but disagree . may be the agreements is done but need to be signed by both parties, particularly the kuwait prime minister
[2012jesus] flashing done :
[burk50] Flashing so what does it mean Kuwait will not talk?
[flashing] raven i don't think we are in a moving target. once they sign this agreement u will see the rv. imo everything still positive and we will see it soon. ck all the articles about the gold reserves. By the way now everybody is talking about the iraq reserve. But just after i brought that to ur attention.
[xyz] 2012jesus could be old news but hey worthy ...hence cbi closed .... Christmas Is Now Official Holiday In Iraq http://www.cbsnews.com/2100-500257_162-4686379.html
[flashing] burk50 imo they are exercising pressure over iraq. Maliki is trying to be smartest than the world leaders. that s one of the resons why the u s a ambassador is upset with him.
[2012jesus] xyz yes but cbi was suppose to be open 25th and they are closed jan1st
[MarineMom] 2012jesus I would love for the cbi status to mean something favorable for us, but I have found that they are very inconsistant with their updates, etc.
[wolverine7] flashing Just read MED on recaps, not good at all, any chance the VND going while they try and take out M.
[flashing] just remember that both countries iraq and vietnam have already started the process to increase gold reserves. Vietnam started on November. This means they are preparing the track for the rv. :
[2012jesus] flashing plus iraq is getting all of irans gold well trying ,,plus CBI is building there gold reserves for IQD
[jamajacks] flashing This agreement seems to be that always moving target, or is it the issue used as the attention get'er while a stall is in place over the real issue(s)....Dejavue
[flashing] 2012jesus agreed we are like never before.
[flashing] jamajacks i think this time they will do it. they need to be out of ch 7.
[MarineMom] 2012jesus iraq just quadrupled there gold reserves in a 2 month period.
[flashing] the rv will be possible once Iraq meets the major obligations under ch 7. (imo the border agreement.) they can handle separately issues like missing properties and persons.
[flashing] dec 31 is key for our expectations. imo although there are some confusing news we still in a very good position.
