DELTA: Iraqi PM Urges Rapid Implementation of Banking Deal with Iran
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Governor of the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) Abdonnaser Hemmati said Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi has voiced “his firm support” for the banking deal reached between the two countries on Tuesday night and called for its rapid implementation.
Tinman54: This may have been discussed ad nauseum, idk. I can't imagine the USA signing off on a banking deal allowing Iran to get billions of dinars at a program rate, then have all those dinars available to them at a revalued rate. Any thoughts? If they want rapid implementation wouldn't the ri be near?
DELTA: BINGO....(thumbs up)
