    reuters.com Iraqi PM says Islamic State completely 'evicted' from Iraq Maher Chmaytelli, Ahmed Aboulenein3 Min Read 3-4 minutes BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Saturday that Iraqi forces had driven the last remnants of Islamic State from the country, three years after the militant group captured about a third of Iraq’s territory. FILE PHOTO: A member of Iraqi Federal Police waves an Iraqi flag as they celebrate victory of military operations against the Islamic State militants in West Mosul, Iraq July 2, 2017. REUTERS/Erik De Castro/File Photo The Iraqi forces recaptured the last areas still under IS control along the border with Syria, state television quoted Abadi as telling an Arab media conference in Baghdad. “Commander-in-Chief @HaiderAlAbadi announces that Iraq’s armed forces have secured the western desert & the entire Iraq Syria border, says this marks the end of the war against Daesh terrorists who have been completely defeated and evicted from Iraq,” the federal government’s official account tweeted. In a separate tweet later, Abadi said: “Our heroic armed forces have now secured the entire length of the Iraq-Syria border. We defeated Daesh through our unity and sacrifice for the nation. Long live Iraq and its people.” The U.S.-led coalition that has been supporting Iraqi force against Islamic State tweeted its congratulations. “The Coalition congratulate the people of Iraq on their significant victory against #Daesh. We stand by them as they set the conditions for a secure and prosperous #futureiraq,” said the tweet. Daesh is the Arabic name for Islamic State. Last month Iraqi forces captured Rawa, the last remaining town under Islamic State control, near the Syrian border. Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi speaks during an Arab media conference in Baghdad, Iraq, December 9, 2017. Iraqi Prime Minister Media Office/Handout via REUTERS Mosul, the group’s de facto capital in Iraq, fell in July after a grueling nine-month campaign backed by a U.S.-led coalition that saw much of the northern Iraqi city destroyed. Islamic State’s Syrian capital Raqqa also fell to a U.S.-backed Kurdish-led coalition in September. The forces fighting Islamic State in both countries now expect a new phase of guerrilla warfare, a tactic the militants have already shown themselves capable of. Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who in 2014 had declared in Mosul the founding of a new Islamic caliphate, released an audio recording on Sept. 28 that indicated he was alive, after several reports he had been killed. He urged his followers to keep up the fight despite setbacks. He is believed to be hiding in the stretch of desert in the border area. Driven from its two de facto capitals, Islamic State was progressively squeezed this year into an ever-shrinking pocket of desert, straddling the frontier between the two countries, by enemies that include most regional states and global powers. In Iraq, the group confronted U.S.-backed Iraqi government forces and Iranian-trained paramilitary groups known as Popular Mobilisation.

    What does it mean to leave Iraq in Chapter VII? 12/9/2017 Exit Iraq permanently from Chapter VII means many of the pros and here we review the benefits of this historic decision, especially the economic and political benefits of this important step, which will enable Iraq to recover its frozen funds, and end the tax paid by the people of the practices of the former dictatorial regime. Since 1990, Iraq has been subject to Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations imposed after the invasion of the former regime of Kuwait in August of the same year, and this chapter allows the use of force against Iraq as a threat to international security, in addition to freezing large amounts of financial assets in World banks to pay compensation to those affected by the invasion. Legal Status In terms of the legal situation, Iraq's withdrawal from Chapter VII will restore its legal status in the international community to what it was before Security Council Resolution 838 of 1993, which was issued as a result of the invasion of the State of Kuwait. It will restore its absolute legal status in the international community to what it was prior to Security Council Resolution 838 of 1993 as a result of the entry of the former regime into Kuwait and that Iraq's fulfillment of its obligations calls on the United Nations to lift the guardianship of Iraqi funds frozen abroad, to return the Iraqi will to its money and right And is a gesture of hope that opens new horizons in dealing with the countries of the world in the fields of development and investment. " Al-Quban, Iraq's exit from Chapter VII means that Iraq will expand its role among the countries of the world after his departure from Chapter VII because he has the ability and efficiency in the political and diplomatic as Iraq has the readiness to be the egg al-Quban in the global talks and meetings. Iraq is different from Arab countries in many areas of military, cultural and political, and one of the first countries to renounce terrorism. " Economic determinants In the same context, the exit of Iraq from the provisions of Chapter VII, means freedom from the economic determinants, which was a cause of delay in providing services to citizens. And that "the salvation of Iraq from the consequences of the provisions of Chapter VII is a departure from the economic determinants that were the cause of delay in providing services to citizens and will enable Iraq to manage its affairs and without any determinants that cause the delay in providing services and infrastructure projects needed by all cities of Iraq," and expected to "be Iraq has significant economic returns contribute to reducing unemployment rates and poverty. " Full sovereignty out of Chapter VII means full sovereignty, because the survival of Iraq under his will means staying under the tutelage of the United Nations and the Security Council. " Iraq was placed under this chapter on the grounds that it violates international security as a result of the wars of the former regime.

    The document: a political entity address the Prime Minister officially .. and demanding the dismissal of the Governor of the Central Bank 12/9/2017 In an official letter addressed to the prime minister, the Iraqi National Unity Party (NDP) called for the dismissal of the governor of the Central Bank, Ali Al-Alaq, and the appointment of the most suitable person to manage the bank. According to the book, which the party addressed to the Prime Minister and read by "Sky Press", the request came based on the international study that was issued recently and placed the governor of the Central Bank of Iraq in the last rank as a central bank manager in the Middle East due to poor management of government and private banks and causing the loss of dozens Billions of cash reserves for Iraq. The book pointed to a number of corruption files raised on the relations during the period of its administration to the Central Bank, most notably "currency auction" and all raised on these operations of suspicions, as well as the decline in the value of the Iraqi cash reserve to half a half during the past three years, in addition to failing in the management of banks And its transactions. The party called on the Prime Minister to include this decision within the reform measures promised by the people. An international study conducted by a center of financial studies sparked a major uproar in the Iraqi street after Kassua was classified as the head of a central bank in the Middle East and Africa. http://www.skypressiq.net/2017/12/9/%D8%A8%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%88%D8%AB%D9%8A%D9%82%D8%A9-%D8%AC%D9%87%D8%A9-%D8%B3%D9%8A%D8%A7%D8%B3%D9%8A%D8%A9-%D8%AA%D8%AE%D8%A7%D8%B7%D8%A8-%D8%B1%D8%A6%D9%8A%D8%B3-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%88%D8%B2%D8%B1%D8%A7%D8%A1-%D8%B1%D8%B3%D9%85%D9%8A%D8%A7-%D9%88%D8%AA%D8%B7%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A8%D9%87-%D8%A8%D8%A5%D9%82%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A9-%D9%85%D8%AD%D8%A7%D9%81%D8%B8-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A8%D9%86%D9%83-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%85%D8%B1%D9%83%D8%B2%D9%8A

    harry started a thread What next? in Iraqi Economic News
    What next? 12/6/2017 Haidar Kazem Al-Baghdadi for each project aims to establish for them and lead a productive or service-general activity comes with financial returns commensurate with the cost and type of economic activity, which is recognized throughout the world. In Iraq, the past period has witnessed the opening of the banking system on a large scale and commensurate with the future of our promising economy and the expected volume of work in all sectors of production and service, which has decreased in performance over the past decades, reinforcing the need for new strategic projects without it. Of course, the economic process requires a highly developed and modernized banking activity to complete all the operations required by the labor market, which is moving towards reconstruction and construction, and local, regional and international efforts. The banking system is the focus of success and smooth work and achievement within the periods specified in the assignment. Here we must have our banking system to adopt phased and phased development plans, ie, an annual development plan that is complementary to a five- or ten-year plan, and thus we have created a banking sector that adopts effective and correct banking tools that are always successful rather than temporary for the bank. Our banking system must also realize that it is demanding that it be highly responsible and do its products in a way that supports the process of sustainable development, and here we talk about the banks that stand at a certain traditional level, especially at the same time we have banks working hard to catch up with developments in the arena In addition to the efforts of the competent organizations that work to communicate with the best banks globally and work to consolidate the relationship with them, as it meets the need of Iraq to have an integrated banking system and this is consistent with the instructions of the Central Bank of Iraq. The banking system has great responsibilities and it must move to the stage of self-reliance in achieving profits and funding its administration and branches spread throughout all regions of Iraq and be dependent on the auction of secondary currency ie the extent of achievement or participation in economic development and that banks treat each according to the completion and not capital exclusively . And there are local refineries that have proven their existence and adopted the best advanced banking systems and obtained the ISO International Certificate, even though they did not enter the currency auction. This is evidence that local capabilities have the experience to enable them to develop local banking performance and move the banking system to a better stage. Sustainable development of Iraq. http://www.alsabaah.iq/ArticleShow.aspx?ID=148751

"This revenue boom has been achieved despite the decrease in the volume of imports and the poor financial situation of the country. This is evidence of the efficiency of collection compared to last year," Haidar said, noting that the statistics in the department of planning and follow-up in the department confirm these figures and their ability to increase. He explained that among the measures that helped to increase the volume of imports start to activate the anti-corruption file and work on the principle of punishing the offender and accounting neglected and reconsider the efficiency and distribution of workers at the level of border customs centers. http://www.alsabaah.iq/ArticleShow.aspx?ID=148776

    Fitch maintains Iraq's rating with a stable outlook 12/7/2017 Fitch Ratings said it kept its rating of Iraq unchanged with a stable outlook. Fitch, in a statement seen by Knozmedia, said Thursday it had confirmed its long-term risk rating for foreign-currency default at B-. Three months ago, Standard & Poor's confirmed its credit rating for Iraq at B- / B with a stable outlook, but expected oil production cuts to affect economic growth in 2017. Fitch expected Iraq's oil production and exports to stabilize at high levels next year 2018. Iraq, OPEC's second-largest oil exporter, agreed last weekend to extend an oil production cut to the end of 2018 to restore the balance between supply and demand and thereby improve oil prices. Iraq relies on revenues from the sale of oil to finance up to 95 percent of state expenditure. The fall in crude prices since 2014 has had a major impact on the Iraqi economy. Fitch said Baghdad's implementation of an agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on a three-year demand loan was running slower than planned. In May 2016, Iraq agreed with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to lend it $ 5.4 billion in an agreement that could lead to additional $ 15 billion in international aid in the next three years. http://www.knoozmedia.com/287940/%D9%81%D9%8A%D8%AA%D8%B4-%D8%AA%D8%A8%D9%82%D9%8A-%D8%AA%D8%B5%D9%86%D9%8A%D9%81-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%B9%D8%B1%D8%A7%D9%82-%D9%85%D8%B9-%D9%86%D8%B8%D8%B1%D8%A9-%D9%85%D8%B3%D8%AA%D9%82%D8%A8%D9%84%D9%8A/

    Dictates conditions and controls the law so the world bank intervenes to the lives of iraqis 12/7/2017 It seems that the confusion in the state's economic policy in not creating new financial resources and reducing the dependence on oil revenues as the main financial source of the state prompted the Iraqi government to resort to the International Monetary Fund to obtain loans to pay the state's financial expenses, which economists consider to be unhealthy because it makes the country Debt-laden for many years, which will be borne by future generations. In May 2016, the International Monetary Fund agreed to lend Iraq $ 13 billion to meet its financial needs over a 10-year period at a rate of 1.5 percent, in return for imposing conditions that the Iraqi government would have to implement in the next state's budgets until the loan is repaid. Experts and experts on the Iraqi economic situation promised the International Monetary Fund for Iraq to "unfair" because it targets the staff and graduates, as well as interference with the decisions of the federal government, calling on the government to negotiate with the IMF to reduce its restrictions imposed on Iraq. Member of the Committee on Economy and Investment Representative Harith al-Harthy, stressed that the most prominent conditions imposed by the International Monetary Fund on Iraq in the budget in 2018 was to reduce expenses and not to launch appointments and reduce the salaries of employees and retirees. Al-Harithi told "One News" that "the conditions of the IMF is an interference in the Iraqi affairs and this is borne by the government for not to develop economic plans to diversify the financial revenues and not rely on oil, such as activating the levies and collect them from border crossings and customs and support the private sector and the implementation of some development projects, Debt-laden and bound by international conditions ". He pointed out that "the salaries of employees red line can not be touched and the Iraqi government not to respond to the IMF in this regard because the employees and retirees are the poorest segment of society and in dire need of salaries and do not receive either a quarter of their dues in the state," noting that "Iraq is obliged to implement conditions International criticism because it is governed by agreements and protocols. " He pointed out that "the budget of 2018 is no different from the previous in 2017 in terms of expenditure distribution of revenues, as some of the paragraphs of a lot of ambiguity requires the government to clarify it," calling the Parliamentary Finance Committee and in coordination with the Office of Financial Supervision to "follow the final accounts of previous years And know the size of spending and know the difference in prices between the sale of oil and heights and differences to know where the money went. Leaks about the budget of 2018 revealed leaked documents on the draft draft law of the general budget of the country 2018, for the total value and the proportion of deficit, in addition to the proportion of Kurdistan, amounting to 12.67%. According to these documents, the total revenue was estimated at 5 trillions and 331 million dinars at 43.4 dollars per barrel of oil, with a production capacity of 3 million and 888 thousand barrels, including about 73 trillion dinars of oil revenues. The total expenditure is estimated at 108 trillion and 113 million and 913 thousand and 506 dinars, while the budget deficit amounted to about 22 trillion and 782 million and 913 thousand and 506 dinars, while the share of the Kurdistan region to 12.67% only after it was 17%. The draft budget was based on the export rate of oil of 3 million and eight hundred thousand barrels per day, including 250 thousand barrels of oil in the Kurdistan region, and 300 thousand barrels of Kirkuk oil, where the budget was built on the basis of the price of a barrel estimated at about $ 43, Remains the largest supplier of the budget. In addition, the parliamentary finance committee revealed the continuation of the Iraqi negotiations with the International Monetary Fund on the granting of loans and restrictions. "The conditions of the International Monetary Fund on Iraq was unjust because it targeted the staff by reducing their salaries by 4 percent and the unemployed graduates, and this will inflame the Iraqi street," said Mahasen Hamdoun, a member of the committee. "The Iraqi government is still continuing its negotiations with The International Monetary Fund to reduce some conditions and reduce them so as not to harm Iraq. " She pointed out that "the budget of 2018 unfair to many Iraqis, especially in the affected provinces to non-compensation of citizens degrees of career for the previous three years and not to allocate funds for reconstruction or compensation of homes of affected citizens," stressing that "the budget did not take into account what reached these provinces of destruction and non- During a period of urging the terrorist. " For his part, said the economist Abdul Hassan al-Shammari, that the conditions of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank is a great benefit to the economy of Iraq as it aims to reduce the great waste of Iraqi funds. Al-Shammari told "One News" that "among the terms of the cash reduction of the number of employees by providing employment opportunities in the Iraqi private sector," pointing out that "the budgets of Iraq is a budget for salaries of employees as the number of employees in Iraq exceeds the number of employees of the United States, The population of the United States is 350 million and has 4 million employees, while Iraq has a population of 36 million and the number of employees exceeds 4 million and a half million and this is a waste of public money. He pointed out that "there are many files wasting through the money, including the ration card where it is allocated large funds and does not reach, 25 percent of them to citizens," stressing that Iraq needs a clear economic vision to adopt Iraq again through activating the private sector and diversify the country's financial resources " . The fall in oil prices on world markets since June 2014 has largely affected Iraq's oil-dependent economy to finance more than 90 percent of the country's expenses, as well as the spiraling costs of war against a staunch organization. http://oneiraqnews.com/index.php?aa=news&id22=3337&iraq=%ED%DD%D1%D6%20%C7%E1%D4%D1%E6%D8%20%E6%ED%CA%CD%DF%E3%20%C8%C7%E1%DE%E6%C7%E4%ED%E4..%20%E5%DF%D0%C7%20%ED%CA%CF%CE%E1%20%C7%E1%C8%E4%DF%20%C7%E1%CF%E6%E1%ED%20%C8%CD%ED%C7%C9%20%C7%E1%DA%D1%C7%DE%ED%ED%E4#.WinMRFWnGUk

"Jabouri withdrew from the 22nd session of the Arab Parliamentary Union (APU) in Rabat because of the lack of raising the Iraqi flag in the hall, as well as the flags of the participating countries," the media office said in a statement. The statement added that "Jubouri, who is participating in the session representative of the Iraqi Council of Representatives, and after the President of the Arab Bar Association opened Habib al-Maliki, the work of the 22nd session invited him to deliver his speech."

    8 Natural Remedies for Joint Pain Aches, pains, and joint stiffness. They come not only with age, but also with arthritis, lupus and other chronic ailments. While many people find help from pain relieving drugs like ibuprofen, naproxen, and other anti-inflammatory medicines, those medicines can be harsh on your body. Using natural treatments for joint pain and stiffness can make a big difference in the amount of medication you need to take. We’ve outlined some great herbal and homeopathic remedies to relieve stiffness and pain. Herbal remedies, healthy foods, and exercise are all great ways to help relieve joint pain and stiffness. While it’s important to check with your physician before adding herbs to your existing medications, the herbs listed in this article may help you decrease the amount of prescription medicine you are taking. This in turn can help ease stomach issues and lessen the chances of these medications affecting your liver. 1. Cayenne Known for its spicy-hot taste, cayenne makes an excellent topical ointment that relieves joint pain. Rubbing cayenne on the affected area causes a mild irritation, which in turn “distracts” the nerves from the more severe joint pain. Repeated topical applications of cayenne pepper can reduce arthritis pain significantly. To make a topical paste, mix 2 tablespoons of cayenne pepper with 1/2 cup of cocoa butter, lanolin, or coconut oil. Apply it directly to the sore joint. You can also mix 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper with 1 cup of apple cider vinegar and soak sore hands or feet for 20 minutes to reduce pain and inflammation. 2. Fruit Pectin & Grape Juice The combination of pectin, which is found in the cells of many plants, and grape juice can be of great use to people suffering from inflammation and joint pain. Grape juice is loaded with antioxidants, among them, anthocyanins, which are noted for their effect on reducing inflammation. Pectin is also believed to relieve fluid buildup in the joints of arthritis sufferers. It’s best to purchase pectin from a health or natural foods store for the best quality. You want to make sure to select pectin that is free of MSG and other additives. Mix 1/2 cup of grape juice with 2 tablespoons pectin. You can add water, if needed. Drink it twice daily for 6 weeks, and then reduce the frequency as symptoms disappear. 3. Licorice Licorice acts much like your body’s own natural corticosteroids, which reduce inflammation. It also decreases free radicals at the site of inflammation and inhibits the enzyme production that’s involved in the inflammatory process. The key component in licorice, which blocks and relieves inflammation, is called glycyrrhizin. It supports the body’s release of cortisol, which suppresses the immune system and eases pain and frequency of arthritis flare-ups. Licorice comes in a variety of teas, tinctures, or in supplement form. It’s important to note that licorice is not for everyone. People with blood pressure issues should avoid the herb altogether. 4. Flaxseed Omega-3s are important for a strong immune system, but did you know they also help fight inflammation? Flaxseed is one of the best vegan sources of Omega-3 fatty acids, which makes it even more important for arthritis sufferers. Animal fats can often lead to more inflammation, so making the choice to incorporate flaxseed into your diet will help you get the important Omega-3s without adding the animal fat. Try to include two tablespoons of flaxseeds or flaxseed oil in your daily diet. You can add ground flax to cereals, yogurt, and even sauces and stews. 5. Stinging Nettle Don’t let the name scare you, nettles are contain protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, beta-carotene, along with vitamins A,C, D, and B complex, all in a form that is easy for the body to use. It is also a terrific herbal remedy for all types of arthritis and gout. The stinging nettle plant has fine hairs on its heart-shaped leaves and stems that are irritating to the skin. Although the hairs of stinging nettle are usually painful to the touch, when placed over a painful area of the body they serve to reduce pain, either by decreasing inflammatory chemicals or by interfering with the transmission of pain signals. Nettles also have minerals including boron, calcium, magnesium and silicon, which ease pain while helping to build strong bones. Stinging nettle is available in several forms including teas, capsules, tinctures, extracts, or whole leaf. Recommended dosage for capsule form is up to 1,300 mg/daily. Whole leaves can be applied directly to the painful area of the skin. 6. Turmeric, Ginger and Bromelain Turmeric, ginger, and bromelain are all effective and natural treatments to relieve stiffness, swelling, and joint pain on their own. But in combination, these three substances each boost the other’s effectiveness. Take these in combination on an empty stomach twice a day for pain relief. All three substances can thin the blood, so those taking blood thinning medicine should first check with their health practitioners. 7. Get Moving Light weight training and cardiovascular exercise are very important to relieve joint stiffness and pain. While the first thing you may want to do is curl up and lay down when joint pain strikes, it’s a great idea to get up and get moving. I find that a hot shower and some gentle exericise like yoga, Pilates, or light weight training really helps get your joints in motion and reduces the stiffness and pain. Light weight training can also strength the muscles surrounding your affected joint, thus providing it with more support. Another great form of exercise to get relieve joint pain and stiffness is aquatic exercise. This non-impact workout allows you to slowly moving your joins through their range of motion. 8. Stock Up Anti-Inflammatory Foods There are a number of foods that can reduce inflammation and swelling, which causes much of the pain associated with osteoarthritis. Foods like nuts and fatty fish, like salmon are loaded with Omega-3s, that will help fight inflammation. Other great sources of anti-inflammatory foods include blueberries, kelp, horseradish, mustard, garlic, onions, watercress, parsley, celery, pickles, lemon, and rose-hip tea. http://www.organicauthority.com/health/8-natural-remedies-for-joint-pain.html

    Iraq officially declares the end of its war with the organization «Dahesh»12/11/2017 Translation / Sabah Iraq officially announced that the war against the organization of "Daesh" , which lasted nearly three years of intense fighting has finally ended, though that is expected to turn some of the elements of the militant group of survivors to launch attacks and guerrilla warfare. "The entire border between Iraq and Syria, which the Da'ash fighters have been moving freely for all these years, has become the hands of the Iraqi forces today," said Abdul Amir Rashid al-Jarallah. " Thus, the entire Iraqi territory was liberated from terrorist gangs and the Iraqi forces took control. On the international border between the two countries. This bloody, bloody battle began against the terrorist organization in the summer of 2014 after thousands of its fighters invaded the border and quickly took control of the city of Mosul. On this day, extremists took over the resources of the city and all its resources and turned it into an economic and political center for what they called the "state of their succession". Iraqi forces, however, returned to pick them up one by one until the city of Mosul was finally restored last summer. Since then, Abbadi has declared the victory a "prelude", but the battles continued to grab a series of small towns and then moved to clear the vast deserts surrounding it until the task was completed. British Prime Minister Theresa Mei congratulated her Iraqi counterpart on this occasion, warning that the extremist terrorist group must be pursued until it is completely defeated . "This occasion marks a new chapter in building a safer and more peaceful country, but we must say clearly that, despite its current weakness and weakness, it must be pursued until it is completely defeated because it will continue to pose a threat to Iraq, even beyond the border," she said. The effort made by Britain to stand by Iraq as part of an international coalition that supported Iraqi security forces and the Peshmerga and to provide emergency relief supplies and supplies to millions of Iraqis with food, shelter, medical supplies and clean water . "We are now helping the Iraqi government lay the groundwork for building an economy that meets the aspirations of all Iraqis," says May. " http://www.alsabaah.iq/ArticleShow.aspx?ID=149057
