I would certainly think this finance expo would be worthless based on a “program” rate. I would think the world would know by then the NEW rate.

Nassar Al-Rubaie: The just distribution of the wealth of the Iraqis is the one that unites them

31st August, 2021

The leader of the Sadrist movement, Nassar al-Rubaie, confirmed, on Monday, that the federal system in Iraq is the best solution in the way of governance in Iraq.  

Al-Rubaie said, during his participation in the “Al-Rafidain Forum for Dialogue” and followed by “Nass” (August 31, 2021): “Any people of multiple sects and ethnicities, especially in Iraq, have become partisan pluralism, which is an ethnic and sectarian representation, as partisan pluralism has strengthened that the problem is that she takes this or that identity.  

He pointed out that “Iraq needs a political will to build a strong modern state that fulfills the hopes of the Iraqi people, and is based on a fair distribution, because the unified for the Iraqis is the equitable distribution of wealth.”  He pointed out that “the political process in Iraq has gone through several controversies and the regime in 2003 fell as a result of the occupation of legislators from the United Nations.”  

He continued, “The dialectic of occupation and liberation continues until the moment, instead of discussing progress in the field of development and news,” noting that “the mechanism in which the constitution was written was dependent on the transitional government, and the greatest harm in it is that the occupation does not exit without the presence of a constitution and a legitimate government.”  

Al-Rubaie stressed, “The constitution needs to explain many of its paragraphs instead of jurisprudence, and the Federal Court is concerned with this matter.”   

And he touched on the oil and gas law, stressing that “if the oil and gas law was approved, it would achieve sustainable development in all sectors in Iraq, and would put an end to the trespassers on the country’s wealth.”   LINK
