Clare:  At an official invitation, the President of the Kurdistan Region visits France


The President of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, Nechirvan Barzani, is scheduled to make an official visit to Paris tomorrow, Friday, in response to an official invitation sent to him by French President Emmanuel Macron.

According to a statement issued by the French presidency, President Macron will meet tomorrow with President Nechirvan at the Elysee Palace.

In turn, the Presidency of the Kurdistan Region explained in a statement that President Nechirvan Barzani will discuss tomorrow, during his meeting with President Macron at the Elysee Palace, French relations with Iraq and the Kurdistan Region, the development of joint cooperation, and the situation in Iraq and the region in general.

It is noteworthy that this is the fourth official visit conducted by Nechirvan Barzani since he assumed the presidency of the Kurdistan Regional Government in its previous session, and the presidency of the region in its current session.

The French President was scheduled to pay a visit to Iraq to attend the “Third Baghdad Conference,” which was scheduled to be held at the end of October, but the postponement of its holding until further notice prevented that.

Earlier today, an informed Iraqi government source told Shafaq News Agency that the countries participating in the “Third Baghdad Conference” demanded that the conference be postponed due to the unstable conditions Iraq is witnessing due to the escalation of attacks against American forces, and with a fear of an escalation of these attacks and the American response. And with warnings from some countries against traveling to Iraq.”

The government source added that the “Third Baghdad Conference” has been postponed until further notice, and no new date has been set for it. The date will be linked to stabilizing the situation and stopping the escalation of the armed factions against the American forces present with a number of Iraqi military forces.

The “Baghdad 2” conference was held on December 22, 2022, at the King Hussein bin Talal Convention Center on the coast of the Dead Sea, after a first session held in the Iraqi capital in August 2021 at the initiative of French President Emmanuel Macron and Iraq.

The conference was attended by French President Emmanuel Macron, Iraqi Prime Minister Muhammad Shia al-Sudani, Emir of Qatar Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, European Union foreign policy official Josep Borrell, who coordinates the Vienna negotiations on the Iranian nuclear file, and Enrique Mora, the European Union coordinator for these talks. In addition to the foreign ministers of Iran and Saudi Arabia, the Secretary-General of the Arab League, the Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council, and a number of other Arab foreign ministers.

Militia Man  If they do in fact get the oil and gas law done they’re going to need an evaluation for that. They’re going to need to know what to pay the wealth of the citizens a fair distribution.

Yada  A lot of events that they can’t hide. The currency swaps with other countries, the activation of their banking using dinars only starting 11-1-23, the connection of the banks, ports, and government offices with their central bank, hence, all these activation before the rate change in country and next, internationally.

Major Banks Are Closing Hundreds Of Branches As Mass Layoffs Signal Collapse

Atlantis Report:  11-2-2023

The closure of a large number of branches by major United States banks is raising red flags. Many experts are viewing it as a foreboding indication of a looming financial crisis.

In a bid to brace for the upcoming financial crisis, banks are not only shutting branches but also laying off thousands of employees.

This comes as the response to mounting pressures due to factors such as record high interest rates and turbulence in the real estate market, which is leading major financial institutions like JP Morgan, Wells Fargo, and Goldman Sachs to report substantial losses.

 This is a huge concern among economists and they are anticipating a collapse in the economy. The reason they are reducing their physical footprint is that there will be mass withdrawals and decreased physical visits.

This sets us up for a very dark winter ahead as more and more banks will face collapse.
