>>> From: "farbuthnot" <firstname.lastname@example.org> If anyone subscribes to Middle East Economic Digest, could they post the article which says that the US is encouraging Israeli companies to bid for Iraqi contracts, please. >>> I don't think anyone posted a reply to this, here's the article from lexis nexis, hope this is what you were looking for: >>> Copyright 2003 Janet Matthews Information Services Quest Economics Database Middle East Economic Digest June 27, 2003 SECTION: News; Pg. 2 LENGTH: 241 words HEADLINE: SEVEN DAYS: NEWS IN BRIEF BODY: * Iran More than one hundred members of the Iranian opposition group, the Mujahedin-e-Khalq Organisation, were arrested in Paris in late June, prompting major demonstrations by their supporters in Paris and London. Several attempted to immolate themselves in protest at the arrests, leading to the death of one. France said the arrests were intended to forestall a wave of attacks planned by the group after the US disarmed their Iraq-based forces. Much of the group has been based in France for more than 20 years, leading Iranian newspapers to question the timing of this round of arrests. * Iraq The US has called on Israeli companies to participate in the reconstruction of Iraq, the Israeli daily Yediot Aharonot reported on 25 June. According to the newspaper, US Treasury vice-secretary John Taylor invited Israeli firms "to work, invest and participate in the various fields" that have been opened up in Iraq. Taylor said the opportunities would come up as soon as Israeli activities and investment under Iraq's new economic legislation - to be issued within the next weeks - have been sanctioned. Once approved, Israeli companies will also be able to sell their products on the Iraqi market, Taylor said. Copyright: EMAP Business International Ltd. All rights reserved.
