Abdulmahdi explains the debate on the budget of Kurdistan and the share of barrels of oil
Shafaq News / Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi said that his government pays the special part of the salaries of employees of the Kurdistan Region only within the framework of the federal budget.
"The government pays salaries and dues to the Kurdistan region under the budget and not pay the rest because the budget law deducted the amount deducted by the amounts represented by the value of 250 thousand barrels of oil per day, and if the province does not deliver this share will be deducted from the share of the region.
"We have not received any barrels of oil from the region until today and the government does not hand over the share of the whole province, but only receive salaries and this is a right for our people in Kurdistan because they are our sons."
"There are political differences and it is not right to make them a source of threats to social peace," he said.
The Iraqi authorities approved the beginning of this year budget for the year 2019 included the return of the share of the Kurdistan Region, which was not received in 2018 because of the referendum on independence in 2017, and was estimated between 12.7 and 17 percent of them.
The government pledged in Baghdad to pay the salaries of all employees in the Kurdistan Region in 2019, including fighters of the Peshmerga forces, which has been the subject of controversy for years between Baghdad and Erbil.
Baghdad announced that it would pay the salaries for the first time in the event that the region exports its 250,000 barrels per day quota through Sumer (an institution of the Ministry of Oil in the central government responsible for exporting the country's oil).
