Iran promises Iraq financial aid

Posted: 07-07-2005 , 16:23 GMT


According to BNA, Iran promised Iraq financial aid amounting to one billion dollars for the reconstruction of the war torn country, Iraqi Defence Minister Saadoun Al Dulaimi said Thursday during a three day visit to Iran.
The aid proposal came at a time when the Iranian administration is still demanding billions of dollars of compensation from Iraq for major border areas in the Iran's southwest still devastated by the war. Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim Jafari is scheduled to visit Iran next Tuesday. Prior to Jafari's visit, ten of his Ministers will come to Tehran to prepare the grounds for the meetings. Both sides regard the visit as a turning point in Tehran- Baghdad relations, as it marks the first time in recent Iranian history that the head of an Iraqi government will come to Tehran.

3. Oh my! Dim son is not going to like this one little bit. Iran might
actually do some real reconstruction in Iraq while also strengthening ties to their Sunni brothers. This should be very interesting to watch indeed.

5. It's happening everywhere...


China & Russia, Venezuela & Cuba, etc. People in power from other countries definitely do not want a NWO chaired by the USA.

4. Iran security interests are in having a friendly Iraq on its border.
The problem is the conflict between Sunnis and Shiites in Iraq. The friendlier the government is to Iran, the more divisive it will be within Iraq.

This is why the UK wants to see a federal system in Iraq. The US apparently believes in a strong central government with dissent controlled by an iron fist.
