MilitiaMan:  Be it that it may be not the same Agencies listed above, but, note the below and above players have clout to say the least Globally and get attention and I mean serious attention when they speak.

I believe we can all agree that the UST and the Federal Reserve Bank of the USA knows everyone at the IMF and UN, etc. and probably on a first name to nick name basis..  lol

 Don't think for one second they don't know or are at least apprised of the goings on in Iraq to the degree necessary for the work they do. Money!!!

The CBI hasn't published as far as we know an IQD rate since 01/04/2017 possibly further back to 12/31/2016 to be fair. We are told there have been meetings on the 01/04/2017 and the 5th as well. Then again on the 11th - 12th and then again, 17 - 19th of January 2017 between IMF, CBI and other agencies in regards to the IQD / Iraq's Monetary Reform (MR).
Frank spells it out clearly in the CCs.  Then today we see that Pres Trump wants and equal playing field and goes on to say the world is going to be surprised how things are moving forward in regard to global currency.

(I suggest everyone watch the video or read the transcript from to day.)

Trump just called Abaadi did he not? Yup.

Abadi had an interview with France24 and says effectively "Mosul is Done" did he not? Yup!  
Well then? There we have it.  They aren't going to spoon feed us any better than this.. lol
I believe I gleaned from the board that it is up to Abadi.  Or in other words, if there is anything out of Abadi that can be shared, it may be. JMHO.. Frank says the progress is beautiful.. Ya think!

Frank26: "When they met … and that was the last time they met … on the 17-19th … the IMF / UN met with them … and many other agencies … IMO … they talked about the new exchange rate … that they have well calculated … and IMO … they approved this new rate."~Frank26"  "IMO --- on Jan 12th the CBI presented the new numbers that have been missing now for over 41 days.  So Jan 12th … they talked … then they met again on the 17-19th  … with the IMF.

 The coming weeks … they have BIG reasons to lift the 3 zeros from exchange rate … and bring back the GLORY DAYS of the IQD.~Frank26  IMF says to Iraq … “the implementation of your financial reforms has been fantastic!” ~Frank26  "The reason why IRAQ is proud is because they are doing what the IMF told them to do.  IMF says they’ve done a good job … Abadi, GOI, CBI. With what? 

The IBAN, security, stability, etc.  Why don’t we have the 3 zeros lifted right now? They need to improve the foreign policy for Iraq … in other words … lift the 3 zeros from your exchange rate. The progress is beautiful.~Frank26

Samson:  UPDATED: Public protests in Baghdad turn violent, one killed by police
BAGHDAD, Iraq—Public demonstrations in the Iraqi capital turned violent on Saturday which led to the death of one person after police opened fire on protestors who tried to break into the heavily-fortified Green Zone.

Supporters of the Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr marched on the streets of Baghdad and towards the government compound against corruption and demanding a change to Iraq’s election law.

They chanted: “Don’t respond to us with bullets,” as they marched on, said our correspondent in Baghdad.

“The protesters are calling for peace saying do not respond to us with bullets,” said the reporter.

Police used tear gas and fired over head to disperse the protestors.

Waving the Iraqi flag protestors shuttled the streets, with the injured rushed to nearby hospitals.

Jamal Kochar, a Kurdish MP in Baghdad told Rudaw that the demonstrators have taken matters into their own hands.

“Muqtada al-Sadir has not asked his supporters to break into Green Zone area at all,” Kochar said.

“Based on our knowledge, we were aware that protesters had planned to enter the Green Zone area,” said another Kurdish MP, adding that some Kurdish MPs have gathered together in a place to protect ourselves.”

The police did not let the protesters cross The Jamhuri Bridge to break into the Green Zone area, said Rudaw’s Bahman Hassan.

Adil Nuri, another Kurdish MP said that the protesters have blocked a main road to the Green Zone.

“The protesters have blocked the suspension bridge, which is the main road to enter the Green Zone,” said Nuri, from the Kurdistan Islamic Union (KIU).

Security forces in the Green Zone are calling for reinforcements as they say they cannot stop the protesters, said Shakawan Abdullah, another Kurdish MP from the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP).

“When they knew that the government was not serious in changing the Electoral  Commission, they staged demonstrations,” Abdullah added.

To avoid any harm against the Kurdish MPs based in the area “all Kurdish factions are leaving the area and returning to the Kurdistan Region ,” he said. “The airport road is open and the demonstrators have not reached there.”

It is said that after 5pm, the demonstrators will receive new orders and that the violent clashes may escallate, he revealed.

Rudaw has the knowledge that some of the protesters have managed to pass the concrete barriers and enter the Green Zone area.

“These protestors are calling for the high electoral commission to be changed, which we believe is controlled by the ruling parties,” Sadr’s political spokesman Jawad al-Jiburi told Rudaw.

“The Sadr Movement previously demanded that the election commission be changed as we believe the change is in the interests of the Iraqi people. This commission should be free from political interference. The protestors are demanding that the election commission, the election law, and the commission’s members be changed,” he added.
