Shafaq News / The negotiating delegation of the Kurdistan Region, headed by the Deputy Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government, Qubad Talabani, arrived on Friday at the Iraqi Parliament building.
Upon its arrival, the delegation held a meeting with the President of the Council, Muhammad Al-Halbousi, to discuss the completion of the discussion of the dispute over the region’s share in the 2021 federal budget.
The meeting was attended by the Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Bashir Al-Haddad, and a number of Kurdish deputies.
The draft budget is still pending in Parliament, as the deputies failed to pass it on more than one occasion, and the country is administered according to the 2019 budget, given that Iraq did not approve a financial budget last year also due to political differences.
The debate between the Shiite political blocs and the Kurdistan Regional Government centers on the delivery of revenues that the region obtains through its border outlets, in addition to the resources for selling crude oil from the oil fields.
