Baghdad / Al-Masalla: The spokesman for the Deputy Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government, Samir Hawrami, revealed, Monday, August 31, 2020, the task of the two Kurdish delegations that arrived in Baghdad earlier, to discuss pending files between the federal government and Kurdistan.

Hawrami said in an interview with media affiliated with the obelisk, that the first delegation will discuss the issue of the salaries of the Peshmerga forces, and their processing at various levels by the federal government, while another delegation from the Ministry of Finance is present in the Kurdistan region to discuss the region’s share of the budget next year.

He added that the two delegations will be joined by another high-level delegation representing ministers and leaders in the regional government, who will visit Baghdad to talk more about the contentious issues between Baghdad and Erbil and the possibility of signing a comprehensive agreement that ends all differences between the two parties.

On the other hand, an informed source in the Kurdistan Regional Government confirmed that the delegation in Baghdad is paving the way for the issue of the budget, the Peshmerga, and the region’s share of the 2021 budget.

The source added that the delegation will present the numbers and documents about the number of the region’s employees, as well as the full documents of financial revenues that enter Kurdistan monthly.

The deputy of the Al-Fateh Alliance, Hanin Qaddo, said on Saturday August 29, 2020, that there are a set of conditions set by the political blocs in Baghdad to support any agreement between the central government and the Kurdistan Regional Government.

Hanin Qaddo told Al-Masalla that the political forces support any agreement between Baghdad and Erbil, provided that the region adheres to the constitution, and the oil imports are delivered to Baghdad, as well as oil exports through the National Sumo Company.

The MP for the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, Hassan Ali, has confirmed that a delegation from the Kurdistan Regional Government will be in Baghdad in the middle of this week, explaining that it will participate in re-budgeting next year and will discuss the last agreement that took place between Baghdad and Erbil and will last for three months.
