Under today`s agreement, the former Im Bank can support U.S. exports to Iraq with two of its short-term insurance products: this agreement replaces an agreement reached last December between the former Im Bank, the Trade Bank and the Coalition Provision Authority (CPA) and reflects the acceptance of sovereignty by the Iraqi interim government last June.
