Shafaq News / Prime Minister Haider Abadi announced the names of the special procedures for the payment of salaries of employees of the Kurdistan Region.
“We intend to launch special procedures to deal with the dues of employees of the Kurdistan Region,” Abadi told a news conference after the cabinet meeting.
Abbadi gave no further details on the measures.
Several previous meetings were held between technical delegations that brought together Baghdad and the Kurdistan Region to scrutinize staff lists in order to send their salaries. However, actual measures have not yet been translated into reality.
According to the Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Region, Najirvan Barzani, Baghdad did not send the salaries of employees of the Kurdistan Region so far.
The relationship between Baghdad and Erbil worsened after the Kurdish referendum on independence in September, while Baghdad resorted to punitive measures against the Kurdistan region in response to the referendum.
