The framework calls for a review of the security agreement with the United States


The coordination framework calls for a review of the security agreement between Iraq and the United States, stressing that the withdrawal of foreign forces from the country is unreal. Framework member Turki Al-Atbi stated, “Iraq has gone through challenges and painful events during the past years, which today necessitate a review of the strategic framework agreement with Washington.”

Al-Otaibi added, “This agreement did not achieve any of its general objectives, and Iraq is directly affected by it.”

He pointed out, “The coordination framework has a number of important observations regarding the provisions of the strategic agreement, most notably Washington’s exploitation of some of its provisions in operating military aircraft without any inspection.”

Al-Atbi finds that “this means a major security problem that must be paid attention to, in addition to other objections related to the economy, money, and the repeated violations of aircraft and marches and their bombing of targets in depth.”

Al-Atbi concluded, “The current situation in Iraq requires a review of all agreements with America and others, and making them according to a path that serves national security and directly preserves its sovereignty.”

For his part, another member of the coordination framework, Mahmoud al-Hayani, said, “The talk about the withdrawal of American forces from Iraq is just a media talk.”

Al-Hayani added, “The forces are still present inside Iraq, and there are American assurances of that.”

He pointed out that “the previous government had no desire to expel the American forces, and it announced an alleged withdrawal in order to stop some of the military operations that escalated at the time against the bases where the American forces are present, and to stop targeting the convoys with explosive devices.”

Al-Hayani stressed that “the government of Muhammad Shia’ al-Sudani will work genuinely to remove these forces,” noting that “there is strong support for the prime minister of the Iraqi government by the leaders of the framework in this regard, and there is no complacency in the file.”

And he added, “There is a priority for some files that the Sudanese government is working to implement, and then it will work to resolve this file, away from any political pressures and external interference,” stressing that “the presence of the American forces cannot be kept silent any longer, as they are occupying forces.”

However, the independent MP, Sajad Salem, seriously questioned the demands to open the file for the expulsion of the American forces.

And Salem said, in press statements, that “after these parties achieved their gains, we did not see any real movement from them towards this file, although they have now become the decision-makers in the Iraqi state.”

He pointed out that “the Sudanese government does not want to lose US support, especially since there is clear support for it through the frequent visits of the US ambassador and other US officials.”

Salem stressed, “The government does not want to delve into this file so as not to lose that support, which could have serious and significant repercussions on the internal Iraqi level.”

And he considered, “Returning to calls for the removal of American forces again to the arena and the media scene are slogans with the approaching local or parliamentary elections.”

And Salem concluded, “These slogans always have an electoral goal and win votes, as is the case with many slogans that are raised and not implemented after achieving the personal and partisan interests and gains of some personalities and parties.”

political| 10:18 – 12/25/2022


Baghdad – Mawazine News

Saleh said that the slight fluctuations in the exchange rate outside the current central rate came for internal and external reasons, stressing that the internal reasons are related to the monetary dollar, according to which the foreign currency window of the Central Bank supplies offices, exchange companies and banks annually with about $10 billion for travel and tourism purposes. A large number in filling the needs of the local market for the purposes of travel in cash.”

He added that “a monopolistic activity within the market acts outside the regulatory controls stipulated in the Anti-Money Laundering Law.”

He pointed out that “the monetary authority is working to stabilize the exchange market in two tracks: the first: is represented by monitoring the exchange market to ensure the flow of foreign exchange from the dollar to the beneficiaries of the travelers, so that the share of one traveler has become 5 thousand dollars instead of 3 thousand dollars, with the possibility of collecting 10 thousand dollars for purposes The treatment is for a single traveler as well, and this was accompanied by the opening of official outlets within the branches of government banks to provide citizens with foreign currency at the official rate in order to create an atmosphere of competition in the sale of foreign currency by expanding the money supply in dollars.

And that “the second track relates to the dollar transferred through the window of the Central Bank abroad, which aims to finance foreign trade for the private sector, as these transfers to banks abroad constitute approximately 90% of the total demand for foreign currency through the window of the Central Bank of Iraq.”

Salih revealed that there are objections from international compliance control regarding some transfers of incomplete information that private banks present to foreign currency for the benefit of their customers and for their own, stressing that “a number of transfers issued by requests from some private banks were rejected, especially since the platform through which transfer transactions pass It is the external entity that undertakes the rejection of incorrect requests, which are monitored by the global compliance circles.

” External”.

He noted that “foreign reserves have become the strongest in Iraq’s financial history, and its balance has perhaps exceeded one hundred billion dollars, which means there is no fear or concern about Iraq’s financial capabilities in imposing stability in the dinar exchange rates as long as the matter is related to administrative and organizational affairs in dealing with external transfer and foreign currency trading.” Ended 29/h
