Baghdad today – Baghdad

Today, Thursday (30 July 2020), an official in the Prime Minister’s Office, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, revealed the fact that the Prime Minister is heading to the United States of America next week.

The official, who preferred not to be named, said in an interview with (Baghdad Today), “The information and news that spoke about Al-Kazimi’s travel to the United States of America next week is inaccurate, so as of the time no date has been fixed for this upcoming visit.” .

And, “What is delaying the visit is the epidemiological situation due to the spread of the Corona virus in America, especially as it is on the rise, and this is why conducting the second round of strategic dialogue between Baghdad and Washington, perhaps through the closed-circuit television between Iraqi and American officials, as happened in the first round.” “.

Al-Kazemi had visited, last week, a visit to Iran, at the head of a high-level ministerial delegation, while his postponement, which was supposed to be the first visit to Saudi Arabia, was postponed after the health of the Saudi monarch, Salman bin Abdulaziz.

Iraqi government implements wide-ranging security and other measures to secure border crossings

30 Jul 2020 – 5:26 pm

Iraq’s Joint Operations Command announced that it was deploying military forces to Iraq’s land border crossings and sea ports.

The deployment follows a pledge by Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi to assert the authority of the state over all of Iraq’s border crossings to root out corrupt practices, stop the loss of billions of dollars in import duties and impose the rule of law.

The military forces have been deployed to the Um Qasr and Khor Al-Zubair sea ports, and to the Shalamcheh, Abu Flus, Badrah, Al-Mundhiriyah, Al-Shayb and Zarbatiyah land border crossings with Iran.

Forces were also deployed to Safwan land border crossing with Kuwait, Al-Qaim border crossing with Syria, Trebil with Jordan and to Arar border crossing with Saudi Arabia.

Iraq’s Ministry of Defence also announced that Basra Operations Command is securing the perimeter of the Shalamcheh border crossing with Iran by constructing a trench and other barriers to prevent smugglers from using unofficial entry points near the border crossing to evade the official customs post.

Restoring the rule of law

During a visit to Mendali border crossing with Iran in Diyala Province in July, the Prime Minister said that it was time to end corrupt practices at Iraqi border crossings and to confront what he described as the “shadowy figures” who intimidate and threaten Iraqi business people and citizens.

He added:

This is a message to the corrupt: today we began restoring law and order. The time when public money was being wasted under different guises is over. Today we started a new phase, as we promised we would, with regard to border crossings, which have become a den, a conduit and a foothold for the corrupt. Iraq’s customs posts will be under the protection of military forces.

Later, during a visit to the city of Basra, the Prime Minister specifically addressed corruption at Iraqi sea ports and reiterated his determination and that of the Iraqi government to end corrupt practices and the waste of public money at the ports:

The ports of Basra must be under the authority of the state. Billions of dollars have been wasted at the ports which went to the pockets of the corrupt.

While in Basra, the Prime Minister ordered eight senior customs officials to be removed from their posts at Um Qasr ports.

Modernising customs operations

The Prime Minister said that securing the customs posts and border crossings was the first step, to be followed by other measures including the modernisation of customs operations through the introduction of automation and streamlining procedures to combat corruption, end the waste of public money and improve revenue collection.

Wide-ranging reforms

Iraq’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Dr. Ali Allawi underscored, soon after coming into office, that this Iraqi government identified the diversification of the sources of state revenues, through ending the waste of public money, tackling corruption and increasing income from customs, as a top priority.

Dr. Allawi said that the new Iraqi government is committed to submitting a White Paper to Parliament in September 2020 which will set out a roadmap to reform the Iraqi economy, combat corruption, encourage investment and grow the private sector.

Barzani: The financial crisis is greater than the capabilities available to the Kurdistan government

Baghdad / news

The President of the Kurdistan Regional Government, Masroor Barzani, today, Thursday, congratulated the Muslims in Kurdistan and the world on the occasion of the blessed Eid al-Adha, stressing that the financial crisis is greater than the capabilities available to the Kurdistan government.

The following is the text of the congratulations:

“It gives me great pleasure, on the occasion of Eid Al-Adha, to extend my warmest congratulations and blessings to the Muslims in Kurdistan and the world, hoping that the celebrants will spend the days of Eid with joys and joys, and that they will adhere to precautionary measures and health instructions.

It is sad that Eid al-Adha falls on us while we were in a difficult economic situation, a difficult situation outside our will and the will of the Kurdistan Regional Government.

We have, with the beginning of the crisis, done everything in our power to reduce the negative consequences of the crisis on the lives and lives of citizens, but it is, unfortunately, that the financial crisis that has ravaged most of the countries of the world is greater than the financial capabilities available to the Kurdistan Regional Government.

Despite all the hardships, I sincerely hope that dear citizens will have full confidence in the region’s government, which has spared no effort in its endeavors to secure financial dues for those who receive salaries in the Kurdistan Region, hoping that our discussions with the federal government after the Eid holiday will lead to a balanced agreement that guarantees rights And constitutional dues to the people of the Kurdistan Region.

On this occasion, I wish, with the support of all parties, to overcome these difficult days, and for our people to celebrate their upcoming holidays when they are doing well. ”

Shafaq News / The Kurdistan Regional Government is scheduled to start preparing the Eid Al-Adha holiday for new talks with the Federal Government to resolve the differences and outstanding issues between the two sides.

This came, according to what was announced by the head of the regional government, Masroor Barzani, in a telegram addressed to Muslims in Kurdistan and the world on the occasion of Eid al-Adha.

Barzani said, “It is sad that Eid al-Adha is upon us while we are in a difficult economic situation, which is a difficult situation outside our will and the will of the Kurdistan Regional Government . ”

“We have, with the beginning of the crisis, done everything we can to reduce the negative consequences of the crisis on the lives and lives of citizens, but it is regrettable that the financial crisis that has ravaged most of the countries of the world is greater than the financial capabilities available to the Kurdistan Regional Government . ”

Barzani added, “Despite all the difficulties, I sincerely hope that dear citizens will have full confidence in the region’s government, which has spared no effort in its endeavors to secure financial dues for those who receive salaries in the Kurdistan Region, hoping that our discussions with the federal government will lead after the Eid holiday, To a balanced agreement that guarantees the constitutional rights and entitlements of the people of the Kurdistan Region . ”

The previous Iraqi government headed by Adel Abdul-Mahdi had cut last April the salaries of state employees in the Kurdistan Region after accusing the region of not committing to an agreement to deliver 250 thousand barrels of oil per day to the company “Sumo” owned by Baghdad, which was denied by the government of Erbil .

Al-Kazemi’s government agreed more than two months ago to launch one month’s salaries for the region’s employees, and mortgaged it regularly on Baghdad and Erbil’s agreement on the oil file and the region’s share of the federal budget .

The government of the region had decided last June to deduct 21 percent of employee salaries for one month, due to the financial crisis that the region is suffering as a result of Baghdad cutting the salaries of the region’s employees and declining oil prices in global markets .

The government said it had taken this step to be able to distribute the available funds to all employees.
