Democratic Party: The Baghdad and the region agreement began today and according to the budget items

{Political: Al Furat News} A member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Ali Al-Faili, announced that the terms of the agreement between the federal government and the Kurdistan Region regarding the region’s share of the financial budget for 2021 began today and entered into force. 

“Today, the implementation of the agreement between Baghdad and the region has begun to pay 200 to 250 billion dinars to the Kurdistan region per month, according to oil prices,” Al-Faili said in the program “Al-Mastra”, broadcast by Al-Furat satellite channel this evening.

He added that “the oil of the Kurdistan region began to deliver oil to Baghdad and what the region receives from Baghdad after the liquidation of all dues,” noting that “Baghdad received the value of 250 thousand barrels per day, 50% of the imports of the region’s outlets, and 50% of the non-oil imports.”

Al-Faili pointed out that “there is an attempt to distort the issue and hold the neck of the truth and to reach it there is a logic that the 200 billion dinars, if multiplied in 12 months, equals 2 trillion and 400 billion billion, which represents only 20% of the region’s entitlement.”

He explained that “the amount sent to the region is what remains owed by Baghdad to Kurdistan, and it may be to pay the salaries of employees only.”

Al-Masoudi said in a statement received by “The Obelisk” that a decision will be issued to disburse an advance to the Kurdistan region in the amount of 200 billion per month, starting from one month for the year 2021, and this is contrary to the Federal Budget Law.

He added: Without calculating non-oil revenues, noting that, in implementation by the Ministry of Finance, 250,000 barrels at a price of 61 dollars are calculated, so the federal government is requesting the region because this is in violation of Article 11 of the General Budget Law.

He continued: We will submit an appeal to the Federal Court.

The region’s share in the draft budget is 12.67, in return for the region to ensure the delivery of 250 thousand barrels of oil per day to SOMO, in addition to 50 percent of the imports of border ports in the region.
