Goldilocks’ Comments and Global Economic News Saturday Evening 5-18-24

Good evening ,

“Last week, in a letter to the council, Iraqi Prime Minister Mohamed Shia al-Sudani called for the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI), which has been operational since 2003, to end by December 31, 2025.”

Resolution 1770 (2007) was devised to give guidance for Iraq on internal protocols that would enable them to secure a safe environment for their people and become prosperous in the world around them.

The resolution was co-sponsored by:
* United Kingdom
* United States
* Italy
* Slovakia

There will be a meeting at the end of May to discuss the gradual removal of the United Nations’ involvement with Iraq. It is believed that they have achieved their goals with Iraq, and they believe Iraq’s ability to move forward on their own is showing consistent progress.

The UN’s involvement with Iraq has been taking place since 2003. It has been a team of leaders from several Nations engaged in helping Iraq “transition” their political and economic economy into a place whereby their contribution to the world is capable of moving to a level of Independence.

Starting early June, Iraq will be gradually moving into their own. These stages of the independence will be monitored, but their control over their own Nation will increase with each passing day. Kurdistan24 Iraq UN

Eurosystem completes first DLT experiment – Central Banking

The Eurosystem completed its first experiment using distributed ledger technology (DLT), the European Central Bank (ECB) announced on May 14.

This is the first of three experiments the ECB plans to carry out. All three experiments will test interoperability-type solutions for central bank money settlement of wholesale financial transactions recorded on DLT platforms.

This experiment covered tokenization and simulated the deliver-versus-payment (DvP) settlement of government bonds in a secondary market transaction against central bank money.

The DLT platform for the experiment was provided by the National Bank of Austria. Other participants include the central banks of Germany, France, Italy and Luxembourg.
