A Kurdish government source revealed on Saturday a topic which he described as important to be discussed by the Kurdish delegation during his next visit to Baghdad.
The source said, “The delegation of the Government of the Territory, which will visit Baghdad, will be headed by Minister of Planning Dara Rashid, and loaded with all the powers on a number of outstanding issues with the federal government.”
He added that “the most important topic will be discussed by the delegation is the region’s share of the 2020 budget, and in the event of obtaining guarantees to increase its share of the budget and the payment of peshmerga dues and salaries in full, it will proceed with the rest of the negotiations that will lead to the resolution of outstanding problems between the region and the center.”
The source added that “the normalization of the situation in Kirkuk and disputed areas will also be on the table,” noting that “this file will be used as a kind of pressure on the federal government to ensure its approval of the financial allocations to the region.”
He pointed out that “the arrival of negotiations to the positive results will agree to the Kurdish delegation to hand over Baghdad 250 thousand barrels of oil of the region, as well as the delivery of part of the revenues of border crossings, but if the negotiations do not reach the results satisfactory to the parties, it will be left to other visits.”
