Al-Ittihad: A Kurdish delegation will arrive in Baghdad to settle all financial and economic disputes

The head of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, Ahmed Al-Harki, stated on Saturday that all financial and economic issues will be resolved by a delegation that will travel to Baghdad. He also affirmed that the federal government’s plan to tie the salaries of workers and retirees in the region to a ministry is a significant step.

Al-Harki declared in a statement that “the government’s proposal to link the salaries of the region’s employees and retirees to the Federal Ministry of Finance is a good proposal and will end the most important problem between Baghdad and Erbil,” as disclosed by the Federal Parliamentary Finance Committee.

He stated that “the proposal represents a temporary solution until the financial and economic differences between the two parties are resolved.”

He went on to say, “The understandings between the federal government and the region are continuing, and specialized delegations will arrive in Baghdad in the coming days to settle all matters, especially in the oil field, and to return to exporting the region’s oil through the marketing company (SOMO) affiliated with the Federal Ministry of Oil.”

Under the false pretense of not sending salaries to the region’s workers from the central government, the Kurdistan government continues to flout its obligations by refusing to release the money intended for oil exports and by unlawfully seizing profits from border crossings.
