Reuters: Biden and Al-Kazemi will sign an agreement that officially ends the combat missions of US forces in Iraq by the end of 2021

May be an image of 2 peopleBaghdad today – US President Joe Biden and Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi will sign an agreement officially ending the combat missions of US forces in Iraq by the end of 2021, more than 18 years after sending US forces to the country.

With the decision to withdraw the last US troops from Afghanistan by the end of August, the Democratic president will conclude US combat missions in the two wars started by former President George W. Bush.

It is scheduled to meet Biden and Al-Kazemi in the Oval Office in the first direct talks between them as part of a strategic dialogue between the United States and Iraq.

A statement will be issued after the meeting to announce the end of US combat missions in Iraq, a senior Biden administration official said.

There are currently about 2,500 US soldiers in Iraq, whose missions are to confront the remnants of the Islamic State. And the US role in Iraq will change completely to being limited to training and advising the Iraqi army.

The shift is not expected to have little effect because the United States is already focusing on training Iraqi forces.

تحالف الفتح يرحب بـ’الإنجاز الوطني’ الذي حققه الوفد العراقي في واشنطنThe Al-Fateh Alliance, led by Hadi Al-Amiri, welcomed, on Tuesday, the “national achievement” made by the Iraqi delegation during the strategic dialogue round with the United States of America.

The coalition said in a statement received by “Nass” (July 27, 2021), that it “welcomes the national achievement of the Iraqi negotiator by agreeing to the complete exit of combat forces at the end of this year, and considers it a positive and advanced step towards achieving full national sovereignty.”

On Monday, the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, called for the cessation of military action by the “resistance” until the completion of the withdrawal of US forces.

Al-Sadr said in a blog post, seen by “Nass” (July 26, 2021), “Thank you to the Iraqi national resistance, as the occupation announces the start of the withdrawal of all its combat forces, let us wait for you to complete the withdrawal. And thanks for the efforts made to crystallize this agreement, especially Brother Al-Kazemi.”

He added, “Knowing that we have stated conditions in the past, and with their realization, the military action of the resistance must be halted at all… and seeking to support the Iraqi security forces, including the army and the police, to restore security and extend it on Iraqi lands and to banish the specter of terrorism, violence, intruders and pretenders of resistance.”

US President Joe Biden had assured the Iraqi Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, that the combat mission of the US forces had ended and the start of a new phase of military cooperation.

Al-Kazemi said, during his meeting with Biden (July 26, 2021), “I am pleased with the continuation of cooperation between Baghdad and Washington,” stressing that “our relations have many health, cultural and other aspects.”

“Partnership with the United States is strategic,” he added.

Biden said, “We will send 500,000 doses of vaccine to Iraq,” noting that “his aspiration is for the Iraqi elections.”

Biden added, “We want to continue to support Iraq in intelligence,” noting that “the American role in Iraq will focus on training assistance and what is related to ISIS.”

The US President stressed that “the US-Iraqi partnership continues, and my administration is committed to it, and we are committed to security cooperation and confronting ISIS with the Iraqi government.”

Iraqi Central: Washington pledged to protect our money deposited abroad

Iraqi Central: Washington pledged to protect our money deposited abroad

المركزي العراقي: واشنطن تعهدت بحماية أموالنا المودعة في الخارجThe Central Bank of Iraq said, on Tuesday, that the legal authorities in the United States pledged to continue to protect the Iraqi funds deposited in its banks and the banks of other countries, in conjunction with the near completion of the country’s payment of all debts incurred before 2003.

The Central Bank added, in a statement, according to the agency. Anatolia said, “The American legal authorities assured the bank that all its reserves and funds are fortified, and no party can seize them, and that they will defend its immunity with the rest of the countries.”

In 1991, a UN Compensation Committee was formed, obligating Baghdad to pay $52.4 billion in compensation to individuals, companies, governmental organizations and others, who incurred losses resulting directly from the invasion and occupation of Kuwait.
Meanwhile, Baghdad recently announced that it is determined to repay the debts owed to it before 2003.

Debts owed to Iraq before the 2003 war, to countries such as Kuwait and the Paris Club, in addition to bilateral debts with countries and companies, which have not been paid and their interests have accumulated until today.

Foreign companies had submitted complaints to collect financial compensation estimated at millions of dollars for the disruption of their activities in the country or debts owed to them by the government at the time, according to Iraqi officials, dating back to the period before 2003.

But the Iraqi authorities say that these compensations have no legal basis, and they have not been decided upon. . Iraq has so far paid about $50 billion, according to the United Nations, and the decision requires Iraq to deposit 5 percent of its export earnings from sales of oil, oil and gas products, in a UN fund established under the name of the United Nations Compensation Fund.

And government officials had revealed earlier, that the internal and external debts owed by Iraq amount to about 73 billion dollars, payable, in addition to 40 billion outstanding for eight countries.

And the financial advisor to the Iraqi Prime Minister, Mazhar Muhammad Salih, revealed in previous statements that “Iraq’s internal debt is about 50 billion dollars.”

Last June, the Iraqi Ministry of Justice revealed that it had taken accelerated steps to recover the country’s frozen funds abroad that date back to the era of the late President Saddam Hussein (1979-2003).

Iraq’s funds abroad were frozen after the United Nations imposed stifling economic sanctions on Baghdad, as a result of its invasion of Kuwait in the early 1990s.

Iraq is going through a stifling financial crisis resulting from the drop in global oil prices, since the beginning of the global outbreak of the Corona epidemic, and the spread of corruption, as the Iraqi authorities estimate that 150 billion dollars have been smuggled from corruption deals abroad since 2003, according to what the Iraqi President Barham Salih announced on May 23 / last May.
