Baghdad today – Kurdistan
Today, Friday, a member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Imad Bajlan, denied the existence of a decision to visit a Kurdish delegation to the capital, Baghdad, next week, to discuss pending issues, while noting that Erbil has reached a “dead end” with Baghdad.
Imad Bajlan said, in an interview with (Baghdad Today), that “until today, there is no information regarding the visit of a negotiating Kurdish delegation to the capital Baghdad during the next week,” indicating that “next week will witness a session of the Council of Ministers of the region during which the visit of the delegation will be determined from Whether it is not, and discussing the mechanism and how to provide and disburse the salaries of Kurdistan employees.
Bajalan added: “It seems that we have reached a dead end with Baghdad, despite our acceptance of all the conditions of the federal government, but Baghdad refuses to solve problems or open new relationships and send the region’s financial dues and salaries.”
Today, Friday, the MP for the Wisdom Movement called on Hassan, and he supported the use of the same measures that were followed by the government of former Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi in the face of the Kurdistan region’s violations of the laws and the constitution.
“There is a great opportunity for the Kurdistan Regional Government to prove its good faith, and if it does not respond to the conditions of Baghdad, there are very large legal and constitutional means of pressure, practiced by the government of former Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi,” Fadam said in an interview with him (Baghdad Today).
He added, “The government of the current prime minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, can embarrass the regional government by taking the same legal steps in order to ensure that the region’s salaries are fully transparent and protect them from the greed of the corrupt.”
And that “the Kurdistan government is now embarrassing in front of its people because for years it has taken money from the federal government and goes into the pockets of the corrupt, the corrupt parties and leaderships, and deceives the people of the region that Baghdad did not send their salaries.”
The President of the Kurdistan Regional Government in northern Iraq, Masrour Barzani, earlier expressed his hope to reach a “balanced” agreement with the federal government in Baghdad, on the outstanding differences between them for years.
Barzani said: “The talks between the Kurdistan region and the federal government are continuing,” expressing his government’s readiness “to fulfill its constitutional obligations in exchange for securing the region’s constitutional rights and entitlements, especially since there are a number of proposals that aim to reach an agreement.”
And he added, “We hope, at the earliest opportunity, that these talks will result in a balanced agreement taking into account the interests of both sides.”
There are pending files between the federal government in Baghdad and the regional Erbil for many years, on top of which is the file of managing oil wealth and dividing its revenues, and the disputed areas between the two sides.
