The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) announced on Wednesday its position on Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi’s remarks at his last weekly conference on the distribution of salaries of the region’s employees and the opening of its airports ahead of the Norouz holidays.
“If these problems are resolved, it will be the beginning of dialogue and discussion of other issues in the near future,” provincial government spokesman Sven Dzai told the news agency.
In turn, excluded Kurdish political researcher Kifah Mahmoud in an interview with the twilight News that contribute to the initiative from Baghdad in the Kurds to take a unified position against the background of the Iraqi parliament’s vote on the budget in their absence.
Mahmud likened what happened in the Iraqi parliament to “out of partnership and that the decision was taken away from the main partner in the Iraqi state and this is a very dangerous precedent.”
“In the light of this precedent, all political parties in the region have been healed to take a decision or issue a statement about it,” he said.
It is noteworthy that the Iraqi Council of Representatives voted recently on the federal budget law for the year 2018 in the absence of Kurdish deputies.
