MilitiaMan:  Maybe they are lifted.(sanctions)  This was written and agreed upon as of Nov 1-2, 2016. In other words reparations, are within and considered in the 2017 budget as oil related spending.

Imo As i can see it, if they consider it as common oil related debt and have it allocated, why would they at this point not have made it clearer to the citizens that they are being sold a bill of goods with all those 23 articles talking about deleting the zeros?

Then have Dr. Essam Mahoulle come out yesterday and tell us they feel the value of the dollar to the dinar is $3.32 to one? Then they put an administrative hold on the budget? 

"28. To ease the cash constraint in 2017, the authorities have agreed with the government of Kuwait on a further postponement of the payment of overdue war reparations to Kuwait amounting to $4.6 billion (ID 5.4 trillion or 3.4 percent of non-oil GDP) to 2018. The government requested this postponement to the Governing Council of the United Nations Compensation Commission at its session of November 1–2, 2016.

"8. The central government non-oil primary balance is defined as the difference between non-oil revenue and non-oil primary expenditure measured on a cash basis. Non-oil revenue is defined as total revenue and grants excluding oil-related receipts (exports of crude oil and refined products, and transfers from oil-related state-owned enterprises).

Non-oil primary expenditure is defined as total expenditure, including off-budget spending approved by government decree and payment of arrears, excluding (i) interest payments on domestic and external debt; and (ii) all oil-related spending (including war reparations)."


Iggy:  just the fact they mentioned $3.22 to $1.00 has me tickled pink..


Sheila:  Could someone translate this to English unfortunately when I translate it I can not save it.  It talks about having a new contract due to exchange rate change and other key issues. The date says 1-3-2017.  Thank you  


Ty1:  Here is the translation....It does say take into account the changing exchange rate!
