Syrian and Iran make bank/energy deal

Ignoring all the distraction- Cutting to the chase


An apparently confident &  forward looking (to the future) Syria makes a billion dollar plus deal with Iran

On Wednesday state TV announced that Syria and Iran have agreed a credit facility between Commercial Bank of Syria and Export Development bank of Iran, worth a billion US dollars (750 million euros).

It also said the two countries had reached agreements on energy transmission and electricity equipment.

 Syria, Iran Sign $ 1 Billion Credit Facility Agreement and Seven Contracts on Energy Transmission


  Syria and Iran yesterday Wednesday signed a USD 1 billion line of credit facility agreement between the Commercial Bank of Syria and the Export Development Bank of Iran.

Other seven contracts on energy transmission and electric equipment were also signed during the concluding of bilateral talks between the Syrian and Iranian sides in Tehran.
Heading the Syrian delegation, Prime Minister Dr. Wael al-Halqi stressed that Syria is facing a global war to divert it from its national stances and undermine the axis of resistance in the region.


He noted that the powers hostile to Syria have failed to achieve its goals and Syria is going ahead to achieve security and stability, launch dialogue and the national reconciliation and build Syria depending on its capacities and the support of its friends. 

The Premier hailed the importance of the outcomes of this visit in enhancing cooperation between the two countries, expressing gratitude to Iran for its efforts to support the Syrian people in their development process and against terrorism.
For his part, Iran's First Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi, who headed the Iranian side to the meeting, condemned the terrorist attacks against the innocents in Syria which were carried out by armed terrorist groups backed by regional and international countries. 

He denounced the terrorist bombing in Aleppo University on Tuesday and offered condolences to the martyrs' families.
Iran's First Vice President stressed that Iran will always support Syria and the steadfastness of the Syrian people on all levels and under all circumstances.

Etc...

  1. This is yet another example of countries making direct currency swaps to facilitate trade without need for $US. This is exactly what should be done anyway. It hurts the owners of the US and the Fed by reducing the demand for $US and thereby reducing the ability of these same owners of the US to wage war on the rest of the world.

    1. Hey James

    Yes, Russia, China, Brazil and Venezuela are all doing it. Time is running out for the 'Usual Suspects'

  3. Germany wants to get hold of its physical-gold; reportedly 374 tons in France and 300+ in New York. Its golden musical chairs - who's going to be left holding the tungsten or nothing at all?

    Mali has plenty of gold apparently. Coincidence?
    I'm not suggesting its the only reason, but it helps. TPTB rarely seem to do anything for just one reason.

      "Germany wants to get hold of its physical-gold; reportedly 374 tons in France and 300+ in New York. Its golden musical chairs - who's going to be left holding the tungsten or nothing at all?"

      Good point, freethinker. I wonder why Germany had its gold parked in France and the US anyway?

      "Mali has plenty of gold apparently. Coincidence?

      Mali has oil too, and gold and oil are inextricably linked for the 'usual suspects'. Their planned one world currency (OWC) will be sold to us as 'backed by gold' but in reality will be backed (and its use enforced) by oil sales in the proposed OWC just as the $US is/was.

      Mali is a Muslim country as well and will need to be pulled into the planned Caliphate which will then be sold to us as the next Great Threat to World Peace.

      everything is multi-layered, always

    3. James- "Mali has oil too, and gold and oil are inextricably linked for the 'usual suspects'. Their planned one world currency (OWC) will be sold to us as 'backed by gold' but in reality will be backed (and its use enforced) by oil sales in the proposed OWC just as the $US is/was"

      Then the benefit to that currency would of course flow to the one that controls the oil.
      from all appearances this would exclude Russia and China?
      Is anyone thinking there is going to be a push on to 'reform' the UN?
      Lest any nation gets uppity and tries to block the NATO world army ever again
      I have only seen, somewhere, one hint of that..
      Upon further thought it seems entirely likely

    4. The reform would of course go to a majority vote, with no VETO power to any nation
      Democracy and all...


      "Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to eat for lunch."

      sans the second part

      "Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote."

    5. That quote is attributed to Ben Franklin, though we rarely get the second part. Just an FYI

    6. James, its good to have you back :)

      As for why Germany had its gold in France and US - it was supposedly done because of cold-war concerns that the USSR would somehow get its hands on it. I wonder how much say Germany had in that?

      Building up the new Islamist/Wahabi/Muslim-Brotherhood caliphate? Yes indeed, that too, everything is multilayered as Pen says.

    7. Thanks Freethinker.

      Pen, "Then the benefit to that currency would of course flow to the one that controls the oil."

      Yes, but more accurately, the benefit flows to the one who issues the currency. For instance, the owners of the Federal Reserve Bank make more money from Saudi oil than the Saudis or the oil companies (which they own too!) do.

      from all appearances this would exclude Russia and China?

      China doesn't have any significant oil deposits that I know of. They have been making deals with African countries for the supply of oil and this is being stymied by the incursions of NATO and cutting China off from this oil. China is beig starved of oil though Russia is supplying more and more to them.

      Russian oil was in the hands of the Jewish oligarchs (financed by Rothschilds) for a brief time after Yeltsin sold off the oil for a song to them. But Putin turned that around and it remains to be seen what the Rothschilds et al will come back with (which they will as surely as the sun sets in the west).
