And travels to the Iraqi ambassador to the factory Luqman Alfeli Lockheed in Fort Worth , Texas, Thursday to attend the celebration will be the Lockheed and the U.S. government officially handed over Iraq's first plane F-16 .
And will be transferred to a group of three or four new aircraft to Iraq before the end of the year.
He Alfeli ' Iraq is a big country and along its borders more than 3,600 km and we need to protect it . We as a country we do not have those capabilities by ' .
He Alfeli saying that Iraq is about to complete the work at the air base in the country that will be the new aircraft . He said that some Iraqi pilots have already received training on the leadership of the new aircraft and that more are being trained now .
Iraq had submitted an order to buy the first batch of 18 fighter aircraft F-16 compared to three billion dollars, and then a second medical to buy another 18 aircraft in October 2012.
Observers are wondering about the feasibility of this transaction, and whether this confirms the fact that Obama's dilemma - al-Maliki in Anbar, in the face of the so-called Daash , or is there a scenario includes the U.S. , Iraq and Syria ?
The Pentagon declares that the sale of these aircraft and equipment to Iraq , would strengthen the ability of Iraqi forces to rely on itself in efforts to impose stability in Iraq and to prevent unrest spread to neighboring countries .
And observers believe the Iraqi Shan said the deal will launch U.S. weapons in the hands of al-Maliki Filter opponents of the year despite the fact that private -Maliki confirms that the war against al-Qaida and its allies who incite violence and that the army and the police are trying to clear them from their bases .

He says a number of analysts and Iraqi diplomats that 'the many reasons that make them worry about the deal , Far from what officials say the Americans and the Iraqis for not sectarian Iraqi army , it seems the latter taking in the transition to a Shi'ite militia are marginalizing the year, under orders from Maliki , so instead of playing the role of the protection of the sovereignty of the country ' .
United States asserts , by approving the sale Maliki these quantities and types of weapons , they remain and expand , and it is in the process of sharing new influence between Tehran , through agreements , some of them probably did not know its contents until the moment , especially since Iran's nuclear file is still facing great difficulties in accessing common ground.

Vietnam has large gold holdings: central bank
Friday, August 12, 2011 15:15
Central bank statistics show that Vietnam has ample gold supplies in hand, even if the recent price hike may suggest otherwise.
According to the State Bank of Vietnam, the public holds between 300 and 500 tons of the precious metal while banks have about 100 tons of gold deposits.
Commercial banks in April were ordered to stop lending gold and restrict deposits of the metal. They are also not allowed to sell gold.
Experts said these restrictions have caused the price of gold to rocket this week, despite the large holdings in the country.
The metal hit a record high of VND46.3 million (US$2,230) per tael on Tuesday and then fluctuated wildly over the next two days. The price was recorded at VND44.8 million per tael on Friday morning. A tael is equal to 1.2 ounces of gold.
In an attempt to stabilize the gold market, the central bank has allowed local traders to import a total of five tons of gold.
Tran Thanh Hai, general director of gold investment firm VGB, said Vietnam could have saved a large amount of dollars if banks were allowed to sell gold and cool down the market when necessary.
