03/03/2010 Date

Financial sources familiar with the "home" for the restoration of the Iraqi Central Bank to more than $ 10 billion and deposits from the former regime seized in international banks,
There are efforts to restore the funds other than the value of contracts and deals signed under Saddam Hussein's regime was supplemented after the war for the invasion of Kuwait in 1990.

The financial sources familiar with "Al-Watan that" the United Iraqi Alliance bloc that nominated Bayan Jabr Zubaidi the next prime minister after the election, betting on the disclosure of such information described terms to augment the Iraqi National Coalition election, especially with the assurances of the Iraqi Central Bank study revalue Iraqi by deleting the 3 zeros from the nominal value of the current, and the U.S. dollar equivalent of one Iraqi dinar.

He said the appearance of Mohammed Salih, adviser to the central bank raising project yellowing of the currency promoted by the government in 2007, "Central Bank Itboukh on the backburner" and expected to see the end of 2010 or early 2011 on the development project. "

In the meantime, the central bank will continue the policy of stabilizing the exchange rate of the dinar against the dollar, "Al-Watan" that the central bank seeks to raise the value of the Iraqi dinar of 1180 dinars per U.S. dollar to 1000 dinars per U.S. dollars, within the month of June, and on the extent of conflict this policy with the policy of economic reform, followed by Iraq since 2003, under which the installation is a departure from the principles of capitalism Judge freely exchange rate liberalization, the central bank adviser said that "Iraq is in transition toward a market economy as it targets the central bank has worked to achieve the stability of the dinar exchange rate after The fluctuation is a concern for the citizen.

"
