Shafaq News / The Kurdistan Regional Government announced that the federal government negotiator delegation will return today, Tuesday, to the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, to resume discussions about the region’s share in the financial budget for 2021.

Government spokesman Jotiar Adel said in a statement made to reporters in Erbil, including the correspondent of Shafaq News Agency, “Today, a regional government delegation will visit Baghdad to complete discussions with other parties on the budget.”

And he added, “We hope to reach an agreement and the draft budget law will be approved.”

Last December, Baghdad and Erbil reached an agreement on the financial budget, providing for the region to deliver 250,000 barrels of oil per day, and half of the border crossings and other revenues to the federal government, in exchange for a share in the budget of 12.6%.

The agreement was included in the draft budget, but Shiite political blocs in Parliament rejected the agreement, which impedes its passage in Parliament until now.
