Iraq debt relief conference
Iraq-Regional-USA, Politics, 5/27/2008
US Department Of State spokesman Sean McCormack said today the International Compact with Iraq conference in Stockholm on Thursday is "a way to move forward on a variety of different fronts regarding Iraq's economic relations with the rest of the world. That's really a centerpiece of this -- the international compact. The heart of the bargain is that Iraq will take certain steps in terms of laws it passes and the way it governs. And in return, it will receive the benefits of a different kind of relationship with the rest of the world, whether that's in debt relief or debt alleviation or trade and investment. So I think you're going to see a lot of discussion about that. Again, it focuses a lot on the economic aspects of Iraq's internal development as well as Iraq's economic relationships with the outside world."
