Baghdad today – Kurdistan
Today, Thursday, a member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Repin Salam, confirmed that the regional government will knock on all doors in an attempt to reach an agreement with Baghdad regarding its share in the budget.
In an interview with (Baghdad Today), Salam said, “The region will knock on all legitimate doors, including the mediation of friendly countries and the United States, and this was what was in the last call that the regional government head, Masrour Barzani, brought together with former US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.”
He added that “the region is ready for mediation to be played by the United States, the United Nations mission, or any other country as long as the dispute with Baghdad is political and not technical, because opposition to voting on the region’s share in the budget is purely political, especially since the region adhered to all the conditions of the federal government.”
And local media had indicated that the region had requested mediation by the United States with the federal government in an attempt to reach an agreement to fix Kurdistan’s share in the budget.
The Kurdistan Regional Government confirmed on Wednesday (February 24, 2021), the continuation of negotiations with the federal government in Baghdad, in the presence of a readiness, which it described as “the best”, to solve the issue of the 2021 budget, during the Council of Ministers held its regular weekly meeting headed by the Prime Minister, Masrour Barzani and in the presence of the Vice President of the Council Minister Qubad Talabani.
