The document was signed on the sidelines of the IP week conference in London. Pursuant to the Cooperation Agreement the parties signed a pre-financed Crude Oil Purchase and Sale Contract of Kurdistan Region Crude oil over the period 2017-2019. The purchaser of crude will be Rosneft’s trading arm – Rosneft Trading SA. Commenting on the deal Rosneft Chief executive officer Igor Sechin (pictured) said: “We are delighted to be embarking on new activity together in the Kurdistan Region and look forward to developing new markets worldwide for Kurdish crude oil. The off-take and supply of Kurdish crude oil into Rosneft’s expanding worldwide refining system will further contribute to the increase in its effectiveness”. His Excellency Minister of Natural Resources in the Kurdistan Regional Government of Iraq Dr. Ashti Hawrami stated that: “This deal represents a new beginning in our relationship with Rosneft and opens up the possibility of a broader relationship in all fields of energy cooperation with Russian Oil company Rosneft within Kurdistan”.

    By Adnan Abu Zeed for Al Monitor. Any opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Iraq Business News.* Radiation levels in parts of Iraq — including the heavily populated capital — are an environmental disaster that must be investigated and remedied, parliament member Hassan Salem and his Iraqi National Alliance electoral coalition maintain. The level of contamination actually rises at times as more radioactive remnants of war are uncovered. Children, unaware but fascinated, find and play with irradiated leftovers, such as*abandoned vehicles and military equipment. ?Scrap metal dealers, some of whom*are children, contribute to the spread of contamination, and unsuspecting factory workers actually burn contaminated bricks in furnaces for fuel. According to Salem, this explains how radiation levels reached 62% above the “normal” reading in the Kasra wa Atash district, near Sadr City in northeast Baghdad. Salem told Badr News earlier this month, “The citizens filed numerous complaints, but the Ministry of Health and Environment did not respond to them.” On Jan. 28, the electoral coalition*demanded that reports of radioactive contaminants be examined. This issue of contamination has been repeatedly raised since wars ignited in Iraq in the 1980s, followed by the Persian Gulf War from 1990 to 1991 and the US invasion in 2003. Researcher Kazem al-Mikdadi, the head of the environmental department at Arab Open Academy in Denmark, told Al-Monitor, “Iraqis have been exposed to the high risks of radioactive contamination —*most notably from uranium —*for more than 20 years, and no serious measurement has been taken by any government so far.” According to Jan. 26 media reports, 1,000 families are breathing air contaminated with radiation in Sadr City. Dr. Ali al-Taie, a resident of the city, told Al-Monitor, “ due to radioactive contamination date back a long time, given the abandoned military equipment, remnants of wars and military industries under the rule of Saddam Hussein. Yet the relevant authorities were never interested enough” to take action. Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com. Post your commentary below.

    From Al Jazeera. Any opinions expressed are those of the authors, and do not necessarily reflect the views of Iraq Business News. A power struggle is underway in the northern Iraqi town of Sinjar. Much of it is in ruins after Kurdish fighters, aided by US air strikes, defeated ISIL. But many of them are linked to the PKK, which the Turkish government considers a terrorist organisation. Now the Kurdish fighters want Sinjar to be an independent region, separate from the Iraqi government in Baghdad or the northern Kurdish regional government.

    Meet the 22-year-old fighting Trump’s terror talk about Sweden from the country’s official Twitter feed In response, Swedish officials from the prime minister on down have taken to social media to debunk those claims. And leading the defense is Sweden’s official Twitter handle, @Sweden, an unusual account that is curated by a different Swedish citizen each week. This week, that suddenly important job fell to Max Karlsson, a 22-year-old paralegal and trumpet player from Stockholm who found out he would be @Sweden’s curator earlier this month. Karlsson has spent the past two days firing off tweets correcting the assertions made by Trump and others by “dumping” facts. Hey Don, this is @Sweden speaking! It's nice of you to care, really, but don't fall for the hype. Facts: We're ok! https://t.co/Vux6IjzOjO https://t.co/rEmO83DN1B — @sweden / Max (@sweden) February 20, 2017 We have around 100 murders per year. Thats like two days in the US. Two. Days. — @sweden / Max (@sweden) February 20, 2017 During the time Sweden received 250.000 refugees, unemployment has fallen with 1,2%-points.https://t.co/aZkMfoeOUc — @sweden / Max (@sweden) February 20, 2017 Claim: "the Swedish border is wide open" Fact: Nope. https://t.co/Qw6O7lfk1s — @sweden / Max (@sweden) February 21, 2017 Let's be clear: a lot happened #lastnightinsweden. Things happen all of the time. Just not the things @realdonaldtrump are spreading. — @sweden / Max (@sweden) February 20, 2017 Karlsson told Yahoo News that he’s had a mostly positive experience conversing with both pro- and anti-Trump Twitter users.I’ve had great conversations with both Trump opponents and Trump voters about how we can have discussions based on facts, and why polarization is hurting the truth,” Karlsson said. “But I have also learned and relearned that some people are unwilling to face facts, ready to threaten others for their agenda and willing to smear opponents with degrading remarks just to prove a point. I can’t believe some adults are allowed online.” The @Sweden account has been run by a guest citizen each week since 2011, when the Swedish government decided to allow “curators, through their tweets, create interest and arouse curiosity for Sweden and everything the country has to offer.” According to the Swedish Institute, curators “are free to write whatever they want,” provided their tweets don’t violate Swedish law, don’t “promote a commercial brand” and are not deemed “a security threat.” And each curator has the right to block people who interact with the @Sweden account.

    So Trump talked about a rapid rise in violent crime in Sweden? The Swedish Crime Survey reports "approximately the same level as in 2005". — Johan Norberg (@johanknorberg) February 19, 2017 Trump's statements left many Swedish residents puzzled. Djamel Zeghachov, a driver in Stockholm, told CNN: "We were like, what's happened right now? Has somebody stolen our meatballs? People were laughing about it."

    Why don't you better post how much the war in Iraq cost? A war that was completely unnecessary and that was ordered by Bush?...... Iraq war costs U.S. more than $2 trillion: study FEW GAINS The report concluded the United States gained little from the war while Iraq was traumatized by it. The war reinvigorated radical Islamist militants in the region, set back women's rights, and weakened an already precarious healthcare system, the report said. Meanwhile, the $212 billion reconstruction effort was largely a failure with most of that money spent on security or lost to waste and fraud, it said. Former President George W. Bush's administration cited its belief that Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein's government held weapons of mass destruction to justify the decision to go to war. U.S. and allied forces later found that such stockpiles did not exist.

    The very clear picture of Donaldof Trumpler. You sound just like him. The difference is that he is getting richer by the minute, while folks like you limp with the palms up asking for bread crump and a miracle from Donaldof. Yes, we are a different set of genius. Because we can see right through the pile of crap Donaldof is leaving after himself, crap destined for you. And for the record, you moron, you need to learn that we have an unbreakable bond with the Brits. Check who was the staunchest allied when we invaded, needlessly, Iraq. How about in Afghanistan? Check who was fighting the GWOT along with us...always the Brits. It wasn't their fight, but they took the oath and fought with us. Their men died along with ours. So yes, we owe a lot to them. Oh! But I forgot, Donaldof was in Vietnam and his children served honorably in the US Armed Forces....damn!! My fault....I was wrong.......the fact is : He was in the Russian KGB cozing with Putin while his kids served in the Russian Army, serving their motherland. Boy, your statement clearly shows how ignorant you are. But I leave it at that. Your words, my friend, is the best credentials of who you are.

    Trump's Russia scandal takes an unexpected turn 02/20/17 01:02PM — Updated 02/21/17 01:28PM On Friday afternoon, FBI Director James Comey delivered a classified, hour-long briefing to the Senate Intelligence Committee on the Russia scandal, and soon after, the Senate Intelligence Committee sent "formal requests to more than a dozen organizations, agencies and individuals, asking them to preserve all materials related to the committee's investigation" into the controversy. We don't know much about how the briefing went -- committee members were tight-lipped following Comey's presentation -- though Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) tweeted late Friday that he's "now very confident" that the committee will conduct "thorough bipartisan investigation" into Russia's "interference and influence." Reading between the lines, this makes it sound as if the Republican-led panel is trying to knock down the idea that a special select committee is necessary to investigate the scandal without political interference. A day later, Reuters reported that the FBI is pursuing "at least three separate probes" related to Russian intervention in American politics, "according to five current and former government officials with direct knowledge of the situation." Two of three, according to the report, relate to alleged cyber-crimes, while the third is the ongoing counter-espionage probe. And then yesterday, the New York Times moved the ball forward, though in an unexpected way. A week before Michael T. Flynn resigned as national security adviser, a sealed proposal was hand-delivered to his office, outlining a way for President Trump to lift sanctions against Russia. Mr. Flynn is gone, having been caught lying about his own discussion of sanctions with the Russian ambassador. But the proposal, a peace plan for Ukraine and Russia, remains, along with those pushing it: Michael D. Cohen, the president's personal lawyer, who delivered the document; Felix H. Sater, a business associate who helped Mr. Trump scout deals in Russia; and a Ukrainian lawmaker trying to rise in a political opposition movement shaped in part by Mr. Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort. The "Ukrainian lawmaker," in this case, is Andrii Artemenko, who's allied with Putin's government. According to the Times' reporting, Cohen, Trump's personal lawyer, claims he received a sealed envelope from Felix Sater, a controversial figure in Trump's orbit, and Cohen delivered the envelope to Michael Flynn before his resignation. According to the Washington Post's reporting, however, Cohen had a different version of events: he met with the president at the White House, but never dropped off any documents. The Times stands by its reporting. Why Cohen would tell two very different stories to two different newspapers is unclear. To be sure, back-channel communications like these aren't illegal or even uncommon, but the broader context matters: people close to Trump have been quietly passing around a pro-Putin plan, which may yet be part of a White House blueprint to ease Russian sanctions, which may help explain Russia's illegal efforts to help put Trump in the White House. Indeed, any story that further solidifies the connections between the U.S. president and his allies in Moscow is worth paying attention to. Postscript: As the story continues to unfold, keep an eye on Felix Sater, a former FBI informant and a Soviet-born Trump associate who's worked for years to facilitate Trump business deals in Russia.

    Iraq’s Oil Ministry announced that Tehran and Baghdad have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to carry out studies on the construction of a pipeline to export crude oil from the northern Iraqi fields of Kirkuk via Iran. In a statement, the Iraqi ministry said the agreement was signed during a recent ceremony in the Iraqi capital between Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh and his counterpart Jabar al-Luaibi, Reuters reported. The agreement also calls for a commission to resolve disputes about joint oilfields and the possible transportation of Iraqi crude to Iran’s Abadan refinery, it added. The two sides have also agreed to cooperate on the policies of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). Under the scenario, the Iraqi government would be shipping about 150,000 barrels per day of oil through Iran from fields in Kirkuk, the report added.

    U.S. and coalition military forces continued to attack the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria on Sunday, Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve officials reported yesterday. Officials reported details of yesterday’s strikes, noting that assessments of results are based on initial reports. Strikes in Syria Coalition military forces conducted 16 strikes consisting of 29 engagements against ISIS targets in Syria: Near Bab, a strike engaged an ISIS tactical unit. Near Shadaddi, three strikes engaged three ISIS tactical units and destroyed two fighting positions and a vehicle. Near Raqqa, eight strikes engaged five ISIS tactical units and destroyed two ISIS headquarters, a vehicle, a command and control node, a vehicle bomb, a vehicle bomb facility, an artillery system, and a tunnel. Near Dayr Az Zawr, three strikes destroyed seven oil wellheads. Near Palmyra, a strike destroyed an anti-air artillery system. Strikes in Iraq Coalition military forces conducted 13 strikes consisting of 63 engagements in Iraq, coordinated with and in support of the Iraqi government: Near Haditha, a strike destroyed five connexes. Near Huwayjah, a strike engaged an ISIS tactical unit and destroyed a vehicle. Near Mosul, six strikes engaged four ISIS tactical units and two ISIS staging areas; damaged 15 supply routes; suppressed nine mortar teams and an artillery team; and destroyed five mortar systems, four vehicles, three supply caches, three artillery systems, two command and control nodes, an ISIS headquarters, a bomb-making facility, a heavy machine gun, a logistics node and a fighting position. Near Rawah, two strikes destroyed two vehicle bomb facilities and an ISIS-held building. Near Taji, a strike engaged an ISIS tactical unit. Near Tal Afar, two strikes engaged an ISIS tactical unit and destroyed an ISIS-held building and an excavator. Task force officials define a strike as one or more kinetic events that occur in roughly the same geographic location to produce a single, sometimes cumulative, effect. Therefore, officials explained, a single aircraft delivering a single weapon against a lone ISIS vehicle is a strike, but so is multiple aircraft delivering dozens of weapons against buildings, vehicles and weapon systems in a compound, for example, having the cumulative effect of making those targets harder or impossible for ISIS to use. Accordingly, officials said, they do not report the number or type of aircraft employed in a strike, the number of munitions dropped in each strike, or the number of individual munition impact points against a target. Ground-based artillery fired in counterfire or in fire support to maneuver roles is not classified as a strike. Part of Operation Inherent Resolve The strikes were conducted as part of Operation Inherent Resolve, the operation to eliminate the ISIS terrorist group and the threat it poses to Iraq, Syria, the region and the wider international community. The destruction of targets in Syria and Iraq further limits ISIS’ ability to project terror and conduct operations, officials said. (Source: US Dept of Defense) Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com.

    In his first trip to Baghdad as defense secretary, Jim Mattis today praised the Iraqi army for its resilience and noted the forces are now focused on liberating west Mosul. The Iraqi army has the full support of the more than 60 members in the coalition fighting the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, Mattis told reporters in the Iraqi capital. “There will be more fights ahead. We’ll stick together,” the retired Marine Corps general said. “As we look at the future, we’re going to continue to stand by the Iraqi army and the Iraqi people who are fighting this enemy.” He commended the accomplishments of the Iraqi army, saying the force has taken casualties, but has reconstituted itself both with equipment and personnel. After a months-long battle, east Mosul was cleared of ISIS. Now, the coalition-backed Iraqi forces have set their sights on freeing western Mosul. Mattis Assessing The secretary, during a stop Sunday in Abu Dhabi, told reporters the Iraq visit would allow him to “get current on the situation there,” including on the political situation and the situation with ISIS. “The only way you can do that is by talking to the people responsible over there on the ground,” he said. In Baghdad, Army Lt. Gen. Stephen Townsend, the commanding general of Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve, told reporters the Iraqi government realizes the fight is “very complex.” He said he believes the Iraqis will continue to need the assistance of the coalition even after the liberation of Mosul. Townsend praised the Iraqi army as well, saying it has made a “remarkable turnaround” in two years. (Source: US Dept of Defense) Source: Iraq-BusinessNews.com. Post your commentary below.

    By John Lee. National Investment Commission (NIC) Chairman Dr. Sami Al-Araji and Iraqi Permanent Representative in the UN, Ambassador Muhammad Ali Al- Hakeem, met recently with the Italian Deputy foreign Minister, Mr. Vincenzo Amendola, at the Italian Representation Headquarter in the UN. During the meeting the two sides discussed bilateral relations and the Italian efforts in Iraq. NIC Chairman stated that Iraq had put Italy within the prioritized list of countries that will participate in the 2018-2023 plan of reforming economy and reinforcing the private sector role, in light of the historical relations between Iraq and Italy. The two sides also discussed some of the issues of mutual interest in the Security Council when Mr. Al- Hakeem expressed the delight in witnessing such a friendly country like Italy as a member in the Security Council. Ambassador Al Hakeem also showed the gratitude of Iraq for Italy efforts especially in the UNAMI meeting and the support submitted as well as the efforts of maintaining the dam of Mosul and its big participation in protecting and repairing the Iraqi archeological pieces. Mr. Vincenzo Amendola in his turn assured Italy’s firm obligation support towards Iraq in its war against terrorism, adding that Italy is concerned about the efforts of repairing the archeological pieces because they look at it from a civilization and cultural corner within the Mediterranean area. In respect of the economic reform plan referred to by the Iraqi side, Mr. Amendola said that they will be willing to urge the Italian companies to participate if they find the plan feasible after treating the topic of the Iraqi Budget price calculation.

POLITICS EXCLUSIVE: RNC Sets Record With $19.8 Million January PETER HASSON Reporter, Associate Editor The Republican National Committee filed a record setting $19.8 million January FEC report on Monday, The Daily Caller has learned. The $19.8 million makes January the best post-election fundraising month in RNC history. WEST PALM BEACH, FL – FEBRUARY 17: President Donald Trump gives a thumbs up to supporters after arriving on Air Force One at the Palm Beach International Airport to spend part of the weekend at Mar-a-Lago resort on February 17, 2017 in West Palm Beach, Florida.

    Trump Was Right: “Failing New York Times” Looks to Be in Serious DeclineJim Hoft Feb 21st, 2017 7:48 am 88 Comments Guest post by Joe Hoft President Donald Trump called the New York Times (NYT) – the “Failing New York Times” in his press conference on Thursday and in his speech in Florida on Saturday. The President called the NYT ‘Failing’ for some time, including during his rallies when running for President. The President is right. The NYT is failing miserably and is in serious financial trouble. The NYT’s financials for 2016 show massive decreases in the bottom line (net income) for the 4th Quarter and for the year. The NYT’s 4th Quarter net income was $37m, down from $52m in the 4th Quarter of 2015 for a 28% decrease. The NYT’s annual 2016 results were worse at $29m versus $63m in 2015 for a year over year decrease of 54%. The Times blamed the poor results on a “pension settlement charge, lower print advertising revenues and higher costs”. Although the NYT reported that their 4th Quarter digital subscriptions were their highest ever, at 276,000, their current business plan is not sustainable and they still succumbed to miserable results. The NYT has many problems. This liberal dinosaur employs roughly 3,500 down from 5,200 in 2012 and while the majority of companies in the US are watching their stocks reach new all time highs under the Trump Stock Market rally, the NYT’s stock price is at $15 down from nearly $52 per share in 2002. The more the NYT promotes questionable liberal news the further it falls into the abyss. The NYT paid for an ad on Twitter complaining that the Gateway Pundit (GWP) now has a reporter in the White House.

Tids (@Tids1960) February 21, 2017 While the NYT complains and spends money to promote the GWP being in the White House our numbers continue to set all time highs. 2016 was our best year ever! As the NYT heads towards bankruptcy promoting its anti-Trump agenda, it believes that it can charge fees for fake stories that can be easily obtained for free on the Internet. Their stories are not that good and are not that true. Their workforce is cumbersome and not well managed and as a result their numbers are tumbling in the wrong direction while the GWP and companies on the NYSE prosper. Their management would rather spend money for an ad on Twitter bashing the Gateway Pundit than spend efforts producing quality stories that increase readership.

    Telephone Hitler used as he screamed his last desperate instructions as the Russians closed in on him in his bunker sells for $200,000 Hitler's personal red wartime telephone had been tipped to fetch £400,000 The Nazi leader used the phone to order millions to be sent to their deaths It was retrieved by Brigadier Sir Ralph Rayner from the 'Fuhrerbunker' in 1945 He was one of the first Brits inside Hitler's bunker after Germany surrendered By Gareth Davies For Mailonline PUBLISHED: 15:25 EST, 19 February 2017 | UPDATED: 02:39 EST, 20 February 2017 e-mail 292shares 150View comments The telephone Adolf Hitler used as he screamed his last desperate instructions as the Russians closed in on him in his bunker has fetched £161,000 at auction. Originally a black Bakelite phone that was later painted crimson and engraved with Hitler's name, it was found in the Nazi leader's Berlin bunker in 1945 following the regime's defeat. Having been tipped to sell for £400,000, it eventually went to an anonymous bidder at the auction by Alexander Historical Auctions in Chesapeake City, Maryland. +9 Hitler's personal red wartime telephone that he used to send millions to their deaths during the Second World War The Siemens-made rotary telephone, embossed with a swastika and eagle symbol of the Third Reich, was presented to Hitler by officers of the Wehrmacht, Nazi Germany's armed forces, in 1943. The handset of the phone must be rotated almost 60 degrees before it can be lifted out of its cradle. This feature kept the handset from shaking loose while being transported. The phone was used in vehicles and trains as well as the bunker and Hitler's field headquarters. Russian officers gave the phone to British Brigadier Sir Ralph Rayner during a tour of the bunker shortly after Germany's surrender. It was inherited by Rayner's son who sent it for auction. A spokesman for Alexander House said of the phone: 'It was arguably the most destructive "weapon" of all time, which sent millions to their deaths. 'It would be impossible to find a more impactful relic than the primary tool used by the most evil man in history.
