What a flip-flop from just a couple of days ago where the CBI chairman was saying publicly that Warka bank was in trouble. Maybe they worked out a back-room deal with the MOF to fund the bank to get it back on its feet.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I think that we are going to see Warka not returning to the ISX but in Kurdistan market where the money is at this time

I guess the next step will be to see if the Ministry of Finance will put its money where it's mouth is and fund the re-institution of Warka.

If this source is actually correct, it's very interesting (and positive IMO) that the CBI is aware of what repercussions the liquidity of Warka may have had on the international stage, and are seeking to reenforce the perception that Iraq is a place where investors can safely do business.

Are they saying al-Asadi is a member of the Warka Board of Directors ? - if so, fantastic .. just what Warka needs, Gov. pull and lots of cash.

BAGHDAD – Businessman Issam al-Assadi reclines in a chair in his spacious villa with sweeping views of the Tigris River (http://content.usatoday.com/topics/topic/Places,+Geography/Bodies+of+water/Tigris+River), as a servant pads over to serve tea.

Iraq is finally open for business, says al-Assadi, a powerful entrepreneur whose network of construction and other companies has won millions of dollars in Iraqi government contracts. "International companies are starting to come to Iraq," he says.

I wonder if ISX and CBI opening their eyes before Erbil stock exchanges open up. If CBI and ISX stay on course of stinking policies,
Erbil will be the choice of investors as we all see what Erbil is doing to Iraq in oil arena.

Hopefully Warka issue will be resolved while ISX, CBI and Iraqi government are farting about ERbil stock exchange.
yea to all of us

does this paragraph mean Warka is $120+ Billion dinar in the black? Seems to me it does,,,

He said al-Asadi said in an interview Almadapress, "The Warka Bank has the capacity currently on infringement of the crisis, because financial assets within the bank amounting to almost 500 billion dinars, which is greater than the liability that does not exceed the 380 billion dinars," pointing out that "Warka Bank is a large bank and very good and has many branches that qualifies it to support the country's economy in general. "

And I haven't seen any mention of the CBI "re-imbursing" Warka for losses incurred due to the guardianship,,,

Warka has just showed that they are no joke.....Politically and financially literate....connections in all the right places.

I can't think of another bank in Iraq I would rather have my money entrusted with than an institution that can navigate such rough seas
and come out on top....and on course.

Yes.....Warka is still a rockstar.

nice to hear from you Betting on Iraq for some reason did not see you for a while!!! Hi pirate, thank you, same here. I had other projects I've been working on but they are seasonal so now I have time to see how things are in Iraq. How have you been?

I sure hope we are able to buy shares in Erbil Exchange. I just e-mailed my broker regarding purchasing from the ESX. If I find out anything I will put it up on IIF.

I wonder if the English translation of 'Al Warka' is 'Mt Gox'?

From CNBC this morning:

"Mt Gox is one of the biggest bitcoin exchanges -- online marketplaces where people can buy or sell bitcoins using different currencies. However, its customers have been unable to withdraw their bitcoins and convert them into U.S. dollars since the beginning of February"
