Baghdad - people  
The government of Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi is moving toward resolving one of the most complicated issues since the establishment of the new Iraqi regime after the year 2003, after government documents revealed signs of an agreement that has been described historically between the federal government and the Kurdistan Regional Government, regulating the financial relationship between the two parties and ending decades of uncertainty and exchange Accusations.   
According to the documents seen by "people", correspondence between the federal government and the territorial government, ended in Arbil's approval of the federal government's proposal to conduct a "final settlement" that could end decades of difference.  
  
Correspondence begins with a document issued by the office of the Federal Minister of Finance Ali Abdul Amir Allawi on (19 May 2020) mentioning the text of a proposal submitted by the Minister to the President of the Kurdistan Regional Government, Masroor Barzani. Before paying any sums for the coming months, Baghdad also shrank the current payment by about 50 billion dinars from the amount that was sent by the previous government headed by Adel Abdul-Mahdi, which was paid to the region a total of 450 billion dinars.    
  
The federal government proposal consists of 4 points:  
  
1 - The Federal Ministry of Finance pays an amount of 400 billion Iraqi dinars for the month of April to the Kurdistan region.  
2 - Entering intensive meetings between representatives of the federal government and representatives of the region to offer agreement on a final settlement between the two parties within a period not exceeding 30 days starting from the date of the financing mentioned in paragraph 1, and adopts the Federal Financial Management Law as a basis for it.  
3- The Federal Financial Supervision Bureau, in coordination with the Federal Ministry of Finance and the Financial Supervision Bureau in the region, shall calculate and audit non-oil revenues for the region.  
4 - Financing for the subsequent payments for the month of April after implementing the agreement that will result from the meetings mentioned in paragraph 2.

According to the information, the federal government and the territorial government are going to close the file permanently, and according to a mechanism that will include putting the entire region's oil at the disposal of the Iraqi Federal Oil Marketing Company "SOMO".  
But the agreement that Baghdad seeks to conclude is not limited to oil exports, but includes, according to the paragraphs proposed by Allawi, and approved by Nuri, the entry of teams from the Federal Financial Supervision Bureau to audit the records of the region, regarding its non-oil imports, such as border crossings.  
  
And in the event that the parties succeed in passing an agreement at this level, a large and thorny file will be closed between Baghdad and Erbil, as long as it raised troubles for the two parties and caused negative consequences for the citizens of the region, such as delayed payment of employee salaries, in addition to the social repercussions left by the crisis that has lasted for more than a decade, in terms of feeling Some provinces are injustice.  
The last agreement could also cause the end of the file of temporary remedies that some previous governments were forced to, such as the government of former Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, which was forced to establish customs controls on the administrative borders of the region, or the government of former Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi, whose president resigned without a final and radical solution For the case.

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — Now that the Iraqi parliament has set a deadline for the government to submit its 2020 draft budget, a Kurdish lawmaker in Baghdad is urging Prime Minister Masrour Barzani to visit the Iraqi capital to put an end to the long-running oil and budget dispute between the central government and Erbil.
Jamal Kochar, member of parliament for the Kurdistan Islamic Union (KIU) says the invitation is open for Barzani to visit Baghdad, and believes the long-standing issues could be solved in "as little as two weeks," he said in an interview on Rudaw TV on Wednesday.
"The Iraqi government has called on the prime minister of the Kurdistan Region and some of its ministers to visit Baghdad for [budget and oil] talks," said Kochar, who is also a member of the parliamentary finance committee. He did not clarify when the invitation has been made.
"The only reason there is not an agreement yet is because [Barzani] is not visiting Baghdad," Kochar added.
Iraq and the KRG have held several rounds of talks to negotiate a solution to the oil dispute, with delegations visiting each other in Erbil and Baghdad over the last several months, but the two sides are yet to come to an agreement.
Kochar said that Barzani’s visit is crucial to sealing a deal because the general view in Baghdad is that Erbil "has a massive amount of income, large quantities of oil – and yet hasn’t paid its employees and wants civil servants to be paid from Basra's [oil] money."
Prime Minister Barzani signaled the KRG is amenable to reaching a durable agreement with Baghdad after the confirmation of Mustafa al-Kadhimi to the long-vacant premiership. “We now have a common understanding with the new cabinet in Baghdad [...] on the KRG employees’ salaries,” Barzani said and Kadhimi began his term as PM. 
The Kurdish MP believes that Barzani can convince Baghdad by handing over its oil portfolio and allowing Baghdad's finance authorities to audit the Kurdistan Region's production and revenues from border crossings, and airports, putting disputes over how much income it generates to rest.
Jotiar Adil, spokesperson for the KRG, told reporters on Wednesday that the Kurdistan government is preparing to submit a data-based proposal to Baghdad for the region’s share in Iraq’s 2020 budget.
“Whenever this data is ready, the KRG will submit it to Baghdad so that the Kurdistan Region’s share of the budget is specified, as per its constitutional entitlement,” said Adil. 
Erbil-Baghdad oil agreement 
Iraq’s 2019 budget law stipulates that the Kurdistan Region is entitled to a 12.67% share of the budget in exchange for turning over 250,000 barrels per day from its oil production to Iraq’s State Organization for the Marketing of Oil (SOMO).
However, KRG has not sent any oil to SOMO, prompting Baghdad to suspend the federal government’s budget payments to the KRG, delaying the salaries of thousands of public employees. 
With the premiership in Baghdad sitting vacant for months, efforts to reach a deal stalled. But when Kadhimi was finally confirmed in early May, his government signaled it would begin sending the KRG’s budget share starting from April, with the caveat that future payments could be withheld again if the both parties do not reach a permanent deal.
Kochar criticized Erbil for failing to keep its 2019 agreements, and urged the KRG to agree to turn over its oil exports to SOMO, suggesting that the KRG could turn a higher profit than it earns by marketing its oil alone.
“I can only emphasize that a long-term sustainable approach is urgently needed,” United Nations Assistance Mission to Iraq (UNAMI) chief Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert told the United Nations Security Council in mid-May. “It takes two to tango,” she added, urging both sides to makes concessions and compromise.
"It is better if the KRG handed over the sale of its oil to SOMO because the company sells oil for six dollars more compared to Erbil," Kochar claimed. 
"If Erbil committed to its agreements with Baghdad, the problem of the Region's civil servant salaries would be solved," he added.

Economy News - Baghdad:



Today, Tuesday, a delegation from the Kurdistan Regional Government arrives in the capital, Baghdad, to solve the contentious problems related to the budget, salaries of employees in the region, and Kurdish oil.

Informed sources said to "The Economy News", that the delegation of the Kurdistan Regional Government will arrive today, Tuesday, led by Deputy Government Qubad Talabani, to discuss three issues represented by the Kurdish oil and salaries of the region's employees and the region's share of the budget.

She stressed that "the Kurdistan Regional Government is in a very big stalemate, as even if it has not delivered one salary to the Territory's employees since the beginning of the year and is looking for quick solutions to end the financial crisis," noting that "the Baghdad government tends to be slow in dealing with the Kurdistan Region because of the great public refusal to grant any Funds for the Kurdistan region in light of the stifling financial crisis in Iraq.

The relationship between Baghdad and Erbil has been strained since 2003 due to the failure of Kurdistan to grant border crossing funds and oil fees and taxes to the government of Baghdad, as the capital Baghdad approved the Kurdistan region's share of the budget in the year 2005 and by 17%, but in the government of Haider al-Abadi reduced it to 12%.

She indicated that the delegation of the Kurdistan Region did not accept these conditions imposed by Baghdad, and the delegation said during the meetings that the constitution gave the regions the authority to set its own financial policy, and this did not make the authorities of the center, and that what Baghdad poses is a violation of the constitution .

Baghdad - people


   
On Friday, the Kurdistan Democratic Party revealed the Kurdistan Regional Government's handover of all data on staff numbers and the oil file to the federal government.
  
  
A spokesman for the Democratic Party, Aram Balti, said in an interview with the official agency and its follower, "Nass" (June 26, 2020), that "Erbil handed over Baghdad all the data related to its employees and the oil file," noting that "the center's government will study the proposals and answer the region with them."
  
He added, "The delegation of the region, through its series of meetings held in Baghdad, presented everything that would be influential to reach an agreement, including statistics, records, numbers and data regarding employees and oil, all of which are now on the table of the central government."
  
He continued, "The federal government wants to take oil according to the value of a barrel of oil without taking into account the obligations of the region's government in front of international oil companies," pointing out that "the regional government has expressed its readiness for any solution that is in the interest of both parties, as it is related to the issue of the budget and the salaries of citizens of the Kurdistan region."
  
And the federal government gave the Kurdistan Regional Government 30 days earlier to reach a final agreement after Baghdad sent 400 billion dinars within the account of the regional government to pay the expenses, including the salaries of employees for the month of April.
  
  
On Friday, MP Mohammed Shia'a Al-Sudani accused the regional government of "not being serious" in resolving the financial settlement agreement with the federal government, surprising that the Kurdish delegations had moved to Baghdad in recent days, despite the deadline granted to them. 
 
Al-Sudani said in a statement, “People” received a copy of it, (June 26, 2020), “Unfortunately, the Kurdistan Regional Government was not serious about implementing the financial settlement agreement with the federal government, as we had auspicious of what the parties agreed to through the documents in numbers (802 In the 5/19/2020 and (201/19/2020) and (806/24/2020) except that the region and instead of investing the implementation of the agreement in the time specified for it, which is (30) days by starting these Dialogues and their maturity leading to solutions, from which we did not find serious interest in evidence that delegations did not move towards Baghdad except in the last days of this month, and we are on the cusp of a few days after the end of the agreed deadline for dialogue.  
  
He added, "This delay will compel the center’s government to stop sending the scheduled financial payments from the region's share in accordance with (12/1) of the previous budget law because there is no budget law for the year (2020), so part of this damage will be applied to our Iraqi people in Kurdistan, specifically. What relates to the employees ’salaries is what weighs heavily on the citizen under these exceptional circumstances.  
  
Al-Sudani indicated that “Al-Kazemi’s government initiated an important step that represented a goodwill gesture by depositing an amount of (400) billion dinars, a step that was rejected by some political forces in the House of Representatives, not to mention the popular tendencies in light of a severe financial crisis that burdened the country’s people;


 This goodwill gesture, but unfortunately the regional government did not invest it, which pushes things towards the complexity of this problem, which will cast a shadow on the citizen. "   
 
Al-Sudani said, "Despite the limited time remaining, we hope that officials in the Kurdistan Regional Government move quickly to implement a final agreement with the central government, so that things will go into a breakthrough by exceeding the complications that hinder the delivery of state revenues, whether oil or non-oil, from about the port revenue.


 Borders and airports, which collectively represent IRDA, are extremely important to the state treasury, and, conversely, the government will not be able to launch any funding, because the lack of implementation by Kurdistan will collide with a wide parliamentary refusal supported by a popular rejection.   
 
 Al-Sudani stated, “We live with great challenges facing our country in all fields, and one of these internal challenges is the problems that have been pending for years between the center and the region, and specifically what relates to them to hand over the imports of oil sales in which the region did not comply according to the budget law (2019),” noting that “it was He hopes that acting responsibly and wisely by overcoming previous positions and thinking about the importance of facing these economic and financial challenges in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution and the law and in a way that strengthens the principle of the state away from the side calculations. 
   
At the end of the statement, Al-Sudani called for "all concerted efforts and seeking to lead to effective and just solutions."

Economy News _ Baghdad



On Saturday, a member of the House of Representatives, Amer Al-Fayez, accused the Kurdistan Regional Government of adhering to the positions in the negotiations between Baghdad and Erbil, considering that the federal government "did not raise the ceiling of its demands, but rather requested to receive its rights resulting from the Kurdistan government."

Al-Fayez said in a statement reported by "Al-Arabi Al-Jadeed" newspaper and seen by "Al-Iqtisad News", that "the differences between the federal government in Baghdad and the Kurdistan Regional Government are due to the strictness of the Kurdish position," noting that "the quantities of oil exported from the region represent a major problem between Baghdad and Erbil" ” He pointed out that "the Baghdad government has financial benefits for Erbil."

He added that "Kurdish politicians do not want to respond to Baghdad," stressing that "the latter's demand for oil imports is a fair matter and according to the constitution, which stipulates that national wealth, including oil, belongs to Iraq as a whole, and this applies to Basra and other oil provinces, and must be applied to All governorates, including the provinces of the Kurdistan region.

Al-Fayez pointed out that "the Kurdistan region exported during the last period more oil than allocated to it, and did not hand over its revenues to the federal government," noting that the region's government "granted itself oil-related concessions without the approval of Baghdad, and this is unacceptable, because oil is a wealth patriotism".

He continued, “If other provinces like Basra do what the Kurdistan region does regarding oil, then that means dispersion and lack of money for the general budget,” noting that “oil is one of the most important outstanding issues between Baghdad and Erbil, as well as the border crossings that are National resources, as well as disputed territories.

Specialists: Kurdistan oil covers 70% of Israel's needs




02/08/2020



Minister of Finance reveals the "in-depth" talks between Erbil and Baghdad next week on the oil of the region - Page 3 4413







Economy News - Baghdad:



Specialists confirmed that the Kurdistan region's oil covers Israel’s needs by 70% at very low prices, in exchange for support from the Jewish lobby in America for the Kurdish issue .

While Iraq considers the Zionist entity an occupied country and is prohibited from dealing with it, the Kurdistan Democratic Party - which runs the region's government - accused political parties of raising the issue of the relationship with Israel .

 
A high-ranking source in the Iraqi government said that the Federal Ministry of Oil filed a lawsuit in the year 2014 against the Ministry of Natural Resources in the Kurdistan Regional Government of Iraq for exporting the oil produced in the region and Kirkuk without the approval of Baghdad and in violation of the constitution, and several sessions were held, but so far no decision has been issued .

 
He pointed out that the parties to the conflict are the prime minister and the oil and finance ministers from the Baghdad government, while the Kurdistan region of Iraq was represented by the prime minister and the minister of natural resources .

 
According to the source, the former Finance Minister Fouad Hussein was looking for a political solution, while the Federal Oil Minister was willing to issue a decision in his favor, indicating that the Federal Court decided to rely on the live answer by sending everyone his answers to the court instead of adopting the legal client .

 
The source confirmed that the former President of the Kurdistan Regional Government of Iraq, Nechirvan Barzani, sent his letter and confirmed that the region has the right to export oil, as well as all other parties except for the former Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi, who was evading sending the answer under false pretenses, in order to maintain his relations with Iraqi Kurdistan .

 
The source indicated that the current government will not open this file in the Federal Court because of its good relations with the Kurdistan region of Iraq, which makes the Federal Court keep the invitation open until a response is received from the Prime Minister to decide .
 

The source pointed out that there is not yet a political party that supports opening this file because of the need of all political blocs from the Shiites and Sunnis to the Kurds, especially since the majority of them are looking for political solutions .

 
On the other hand, the Kurdish MP in the Iraqi parliament, Ahmed Al-Hajji, said that the Kurdistan region exports its oil in accordance with Article 121 of the constitution, which grants the region the right to amend the application of the federal law in the absence of an oil and gas law, in addition to Baghdad’s approval to export the Kurdistan region's oil through budgets. The financial approved by Parliament every year .

 
Al-Hajji expressed his belief that Islam does not prohibit commercial and social relations with the Jews, and that what matters for the Kurdistan region is the sale of its oil to any country, whether Arab or foreign, especially as there are Arab countries that have embassies to Israel, explaining that some companies that buy oil for the Kurdistan region have shares To Israeli companies .

 
On the other hand, Hazem Al-Khalidi, deputy for the National Approach, called for the necessity of ending the file of exporting oil from Kurdistan to the countries of the world and making it confined to the Iraqi Oil Marketing Company (SOMO), noting that the export of Kurdish oil to Israel will make all parties under legal accountability .
 

Al-Khalidi said that the Kurdistan Region over the past years caused great financial losses to the center’s government, which exceeded 128 billion dollars, due to his lack of participation in supporting the federal budget and taking money from the center’s government .

 
In turn, Masoud Haider, advisor to the President of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, said that oil in every country is sold to international companies and enter through these companies to the global market, and that the Kurdistan region of Iraq displays its oil in this market .

 
He added that the accusations of selling Iraqi Kurdistan oil to certain countries are for political purposes, and that the region deals with Israel or any other country according to Iraq’s foreign policy, as the Kurdistan region is within the federal federal Iraq, considering that there are many Arab countries that have trade relations and agreements with Israel .

 
According to the statements of the Baghdad government, the production of the Kurdistan region of Iraq ranges from 600 thousand to 750 thousand barrels per day, of which 500 thousand barrels per day or more are exported to several countries, including Turkey, Greece and Israel .
 

 How to transport oil to Israel?
Meanwhile, researcher and journalist Abdullah Hawiz said that Iraqi Kurdistan oil is exported to several countries, including Israel, indicating that 80% of Iraqi Kurdistan oil was purchased by Israel in the year 2018 .
 

He added that Iraqi Kurdistan oil sold to Israel ships by downloading it, and when it reaches the Mediterranean Sea before entering the Israeli waters, the name will be changed so that monitoring the ship will be very difficult .
 

In turn, the oil expert Hamza Al-Jawahery agrees with Hawiz, saying that 70% of Israel's oil needs are obtained from the Kurdistan region of Iraq at very low prices, noting that the Kurdistan region of Iraq gives Israel discounts of up to a third of the price of a barrel .

 
Al-Jawahiri pointed out that the goal of the Kurdistan region of Iraq from selling oil to Israel is to obtain the support of the Jewish lobby in America to support the Kurdish issue against the decisions of the federal government, noting that the Iraqi constitution in its articles 111, 112 and 110 prohibits the export of any oil or other strategic goods, but rather limits it Only the federal government.

On Monday, Kurdistan Democratic Party member Imad Bajlan affirmed that the implementation of Article 140 of the constitution is no less important than the federal government's steps to fight corruption and reform, while noting that the Baghdad government did not care about the article since 2005 until today.


Baglan said in an interview with Alsumaria News, that "the Kurdistan region is ready for understanding and solving problems with Baghdad in accordance with the constitution and constitutional frameworks for a long time and not now," noting that "there is a need for international supervision of the application of Article 140 of the Constitution and relating to the disputed areas."





 
Baglan added, "The successive governments in Baghdad were not ready to launch them to find a solution to the issue of the disputed areas. Today, too, we find the government preoccupied with other matters, and does not focus on implementing Article 140 despite its importance and being comparable to the importance of any step taken by the government in fighting corruption and reform." Pointing out that "the disputed areas were deprived of many things, such as services, appointments, and other matters, not to mention the existence of ISIS cells that are active from time to time, not to mention the fact that their residents tasted the two things from the state of neglect of their conditions."

 
Baglan stressed that "the governments of Baghdad and Erbil should work quickly to resolve Article 140 and monitor and oversee the United Nations, but unfortunately, the Baghdad government did not care about this article since 2005 until today."

{Baghdad: Al Furat News} An informed source revealed that the federal government and the Kurdistan Regional Government are approaching a comprehensive agreement on the outstanding issues, especially the salaries and oil files.


This is due to visit the negotiating delegation to the regional government to visit the capital, Baghdad, during the coming period to complete previous discussions on outstanding issues with the federal government.

The source said, "The Federal Government submitted a proposal to the Kurdistan Regional Government, which provides for the payment of an amount of 300 billion dinars in exchange for handing half of the border crossing imports and internal imports to the federal government."

And, "The negotiating delegation of the Kurdistan government will visit Baghdad next week to discuss the new proposal with the federal government."

The source pointed out, "It is expected that an agreement will be reached on the new proposal and its implementation only for the current year. The new year will be signed by a new and comprehensive agreement on financial files between the Kurdistan Regional Government and the federal government."

Member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee Shirvan Mirza said in a press statement, "There is a real intention between the federal governments and the Kurdistan region to resolve the differences after the negotiating delegation held a series of dialogues, on financial files and oil imports."

He added, "The Kurdistan Regional Government discussed all outstanding points with the federal government, and there are only some technical points left to reach a comprehensive agreement."

"I think that there is great hope that the Kurdistan Regional Government will reach an agreement with the federal government soon, because the two governments need this agreement and they have no choice but to dialogue and a common agreement," he said.

The negotiating delegation headed by Qubad Talabani, Vice-President of the Kurdistan Regional Government, held a series of discussions with the previous government headed by Adel Abdul-Mahdi and the current government headed by Mustafa Al-Kazemi and reached several important proposals and recommendations on outstanding issues with the federal government.

Erbil, Kurdistan Region, Iraq (GOV.KRD) - Prime Minister Masrour Barzani on Wednesday chaired a cabinet meeting via videoconference to discuss current financial situation and dialogue with Baghdad on outstanding problems.

In the meeting attended by Deputy Prime Minister Qubad Talabani, the Council recognised ongoing efforts by the government's high-level delegation to resolve ongoing disputes with the federal government on the basis of the Iraqi constitution.

While the delegation has accepted all federal conditions within the constitution, the Iraqi government has yet to send to the Kurdistan Region for more than three months.

This is while according to the constitution the Kurdistan Region, like any other part of Iraq, is entitled to receive its monthly share of the budget.

The Cabinet expressed serious concern over the federal government’s response to efforts aimed at resolving budget disputes, and called on Baghdad to honour its constitutional obligations.

The Council of Ministers also reiterated its commitment to resolve ongoing disputes within the framework of the Iraqi constitution, and tasked the delegation to continue dialogue to reach an agreement.

During the meeting, the Cabinet reaffirmed its commitment to fulfill its constitutional obligations in return for Kurdistan Region's financial entitlements. They also called on Iraqi President Barham Saleh, and ministers and representatives of the Kurdistan Region in the Iraqi parliament and government to protect Kurdistan Region's constitutional rights and financial entitlements.

The Council decided to pay salaries of government employees next week, using available funds, and tasked Ministers of Interior and Peshmerga Affairs to prevent irregularities at border crossing.

Mubasher: The Iraqi Ministry of Finance issued a clarification regarding the results of the discussions related to financial payments, the regulation of federal imports, and border crossings between the federal government and the Kurdistan Regional Government.

The ministry said in a statement received by the Iraqi News Agency (INA), today, Wednesday, that it expresses its surprise at the statement issued by the Council of Ministers of the Kurdistan Region about the results of the discussions related to financial payments, the regulation of federal imports and border crossings between the federal government and the regional government.

She explained that "the dialogue has made advanced strides," pointing out that "the federal government started, since the beginning of the dialogue, to ensure the rights of the citizens of the Kurdistan region of Iraq, and to ensure that their salaries are secured, especially after it became clear that the financial payments sent to the Ministry of Finance of the region did not reach all those who are entitled," In addition to receiving requests signed by tens of thousands of region’s employees to achieve linkage of their salaries through banking mechanisms.

She emphasized that the regional government’s statement lacked the required precision in determining the basis of the problem, especially with the great flexibility provided by the federal government to facilitate reaching an agreement that would serve the people of Iraqi Kurdistan, noting that the federal government and within its constitutional rights to secure border crossings and monitor imports and customs deductions, put forward the principle of partnership Contained in Article 114 (First) of the Constitution to secure control over border crossings in the region.

She added that "the regional government did not show sufficient flexibility to solve this issue, and then try to blame the federal government for the financial payments before resolving the import-related aspects, which represents an unacceptable evasion of responsibility, in exchange for the federal government's keenness to secure the demands of its employees, retirees, and eligible citizens." "Within the legal frameworks and contexts, and in a manner that does not allow them to be deducted or wasted."


And she continued, "The basis for the talks was launched within the framework of the letter sent by the Ministry of Finance to the President of the Kurdistan Regional Government No. 802 dated May 19, 2020, which includes the payment of the Ministry of Finance 400 billion Iraqi dinars for the month of April, and the entry into intensive meetings to reach a final settlement between "The two sides within a period of one month will fundamentally adopt the Federal Financial Management Law, including counting non-oil imports to the region and checking them before sending any additional financial payments."

The ministry indicated, "The regional government agreed to the aforementioned content in the book of the Minister of Finance and Economy in the Kurdistan Regional Government No. 201 on 5/19/2020, confirming the federal government's keenness to reach a final settlement on this issue in a friendly and constitutional framework."

She pointed out that "the directives of Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi of the necessity to find the necessary solutions and to show sufficient flexibility to secure the rights of the Kurdish people who have suffered greatly under difficult health and economic conditions, especially the category of employees, retirees and those who are entitled", calling on the Kurdistan Regional Government to "speed up the fulfillment of its obligations and constitutional duties and return To the negotiating table in the service of the public interest. "

Iraqi Kurdistan: Priority Issues for International Mediation

Minister of Finance reveals the "in-depth" talks between Erbil and Baghdad next week on the oil of the region - Page 3 Kurdishflag-flickr-198x132


Baghdad, Erbil, and their foreign partners should focus on mending harmful intra-Kurdish rifts, forging a multiyear budget deal, and reactivating elite counterterrorism coordination, among other initiatives.
In the last decade, the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI) has seen many moments of crisis—budget cuts, Daesh’s assault on Erbil, the halving of oil prices (twice!) and armed conflict with the Iraqi government over Kirkuk.


 Today’s situation feels different and arguably worse than these episodes: there’s COVID, a deep oil recession in Baghdad and Kurdistan, intensifying tensions with Turkey and Iran, and an unpleasant undercurrent of resentment against the Kurds among many of the MPs in the Baghdad parliament.


What makes this moment uniquely dangerous, however, is the near-breakdown of cooperation between the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK). Iraq’s Kurds have shown that they can weather any storm when they pull together as a people. The KRI’s international partners tend to support the Iraqi Kurds more effectively when the two parties work in harmony, but often back away when they cannot identify a cohesive counterparty to deal with in the KRI. 


International memories of the intra-Kurdish civil war in the 1990s undermined the Kurdish cause in Iraq in the 2000s, when the Kurds’ greatest opportunity for self-governance lay before them.


Looking forward, it is clear that the futures of Iraq and the KRI are linked. If Baghdad’s economy and currency collapses, so does Kurdistan’s. If the Kurdish people starve, the blame will fall on Baghdad. If the Islamic State returns, it will emerge first in the strip of disputed territories between federal Iraq and the KRI. 


The success of U.S. policy in Iraq is the success of both the fifteen provinces of federal Iraq and the Kurdistan Region, not one or the other.


The U.S.-Iraq strategic dialogue will continue in the late summer, hopefully including a visit of the Iraqi leadership to Washington DC. This presents an opportunity to re-energize the role of the U.S. and international partners in the issues facing the KRI. 


It is important to stress the importance of a multilateral mission to support intra-KRI cohesion and Baghdad-KRI relations because America does not have all the answers on Kurdistan, nor does it tend to focus enough attention there. U.S. power and leadership are most effective when combined with the perceptive insights and good instincts of many other partners on Kurdistan, such as the French, British, and Canadians, to name just a few.


There is an argument that the U.S.-Iraq Strategic Framework Agreement should either have a specific working group or committee on KRI issues (or on decentralization more generally), or a cross-cutting mechanism that ensures the KRI is worked into each of the security, political, economic and energy working groups. The list of topics that require persistent attention is quite long.


Most important, the KDP and PUK need to be led towards a de-escalation that will allow the region to speak with one cohesive voice in Baghdad and with international partners. This is a foundational issue that affects all the other issues the KRI faces. An adversarial relationship between the two parties undermines everything that is attempted in the KRI and is deeply off-putting for international partners and potential investors. 


It can result in armed standoffs, affecting key industries like LPG trucking, or in security crises such as the Zina Warte armed confrontation between KDP and PUK Peshmerga in mid-March 2020.


Almost nothing—from oil and gas investment to counter-terrorism to fighting COVID to negotiations with Baghdad—works as well as it should due to the KDP-PUK schism. It would be magical thinking to imagine that the two parties can easily reconcile. 


Even so, the U.S. and its various partners should prioritize efforts to get the powerful leaders in the same room to hammer out a minimal level of cooperation and start a dialogue, however stilted or tense at the outset.
The U.S. and other internationals also need to help Baghdad and the KRI complete the promising steps that have been taken on political, security and economic cooperation. 


The Kurds worked well with former premier Adel Abdul-Mahdi’s government in Baghdad, and they have overcome their initial caution towards a change in Baghdad to support the new Prime Minister Mustapha al-Kadhimi, another old friend. For the Kurds, however, the relationship will be almost solely judged on what it delivers in terms of budget support.


Having watched six Iraqi prime ministers negotiate and renegotiate budget deals with the Kurds every year for over a decade, the U.S. is intimately familiar with every possible configuration of give and take—more so than the Iraqi and Kurdish leaders themselves. What has always been clear is that politics trump economics in such discussions: typically, the solution is political and the numbers and formulas get fudged to fit the required compromise.


 This is why, for the remainder of 2020, Kurdistan will probably keep selling its oil and gathering customs revenue while Baghdad will provide a reduced top-up to the Kurdish exchequer each month, which is basically what has been happening for the last two years. A lot of discussion tends to end up right back where the parties began.


This pattern of recurrent budget crises is not sustainable for two reasons. First, the annual showdown complicates an already fraught budgeting process and Iraqi MPs are becoming more hostile to the KRI economy every time the cycle is undertaken. Second, the KDP and PUK are increasingly fighting over the revenue-sharing mechanism, with Sulaymaniyah seeking more direct transfers from Baghdad or other guarantees of a fair share.


The U.S. and its international partners need to back a multi-year arrangement that has buy-in at the highest levels: the Iraqi Prime Minister, speaking for a sizable bloc in Iraq’s body politic, and key leaders within the KDP and PUK. This is yet another reason why the two parties must be able to sit down together at the highest political levels. The sweet spot for a Baghdad-KRI budget deal would seem to be about $800mn per month, requiring the KDP and PUK to agree on a no-blame, non-politicized and permanent reduction of KRI obligations (salaries, social services and allowances) by about 30%.


 The U.S. and other internationals need to put strong and well-intentioned pressure on the KRI to appoint an empowered and dedicated Minister of Natural Resources to salvage investor confidence in the energy sector, which will serve as a signpost for the KRI’s future non-oil investors.


A quick win for Baghdad-KDP-PUK cooperation may be possible in the realm of counter-terrorism. The Iraqi Counter-Terrorism Service, the KDP-led Counterterrorism Department (CTD) and the PUK-led Counter-Terrorism Group (CTG) are three highly professional services that work closely with the international Coalition against Daesh. They have worked together before and can work in the disputed areas with relative ease now. The creation of joint counter-terrorism coordination centers should initially focus on these elite units and their related intelligence arms, not necessarily the “big military” units like the Iraqi Army, Federal Police and Peshmerga.


One important symbol for Baghdad-KRI cooperation could be an investment in the deployment, for short periods, of some Iraqi Air Force F-16 aircraft to the airports in Erbil and Sulaymaniyah. These fighter-bombers were notoriously viewed as a stick that Baghdad might use against the Kurds, but today the F-16 fleet and its American technicians are struggling to stay in service as Iran-backed militias surround their operating base at Balad. Perhaps an out-of-the-box idea might be to cycle a fragment of the F-16 fleet through the safe operating environments of Erbil and Sulaymaniyah, as the Italian Air Force did with a small complement of Eurofighters during the war against Daesh.


The common thread in all these options is a desire to “go big” in the Baghdad-KDP-PUK relationship, and for international players to encourage and support new thinking. The Kurdistan Region is currently cycling downwards, with less stability and less attractiveness as an investment environment, largely because Kurdish leaders are allowing themselves to be divided by personality politics.


 The U.S. intervention in Iraq in 1991 helped to free the Iraqi Kurds and the intervention in 2003 saw the U.S. ask those same Kurds to rejoin Iraq on the basis of U.S. guarantees. It is time to begin to make good on those guarantees. U.S. intervention transformed Iraq from a dictatorship to a democracy (imperfect, like all democracies), but an equally great transformation would be to help create an Iraqi state at peace with all of its components, first and foremost its Kurdish population.


 That moment can and should start in earnest now.

The President of the Republic, Barham Salih, called today, Thursday, for transparency and openness in the discussions of the federal government and the Kurdistan region, and to return to the negotiating table as soon as possible, and for the citizens' interests to be presented over self or political interests.

Saleh confirmed, according to the statement, that “he was constantly supporting and following the course of the discussions to reach a fair legal settlement on this issue, and that many obstacles were overcome during recent days through dialogue,” expressing his “surprise at the appearance of signs of tension in media statements that do not reflect reality. The truth of the talks, which it was hoped that an agreement would be concluded before the end of this week, represents a just and legal solution that preserves the rights of the Iraqi people, including the rights of citizens, employees and retirees, in the Kurdistan region.

He pointed to "his support from the beginning to reach a settlement that guarantees the arrival of federal budget funds and the region's resources to those who deserve it from among the citizens of the region, and emphasizes the adoption of the principle of transparency and openness and the adoption of sound legal contexts that leave no room for corruption or manipulation," pointing out that "securing the salaries of Iraqi citizens, and from The citizens of the region include them, a constitutional right and that the relevant authorities must secure this right and not be dependent on political considerations or illegal and unlawful self-interests.

Barzani: We receive 5% of our financial budget, and we are accused of rebuilding the region at the expense of the south to cover the failure

Minister of Finance reveals the "in-depth" talks between Erbil and Baghdad next week on the oil of the region - Page 3 F30ab422-c291-4285-89d5-80d1b254b2d9




(Baghdad: Al Furat News) The President of the Kurdistan Regional Government, Masrour Barzani, said that the region has not fully received its financial budgets.


Barzani said in his first joint press interview with local and Arab media since he took office 13 months ago, "Our relationship with the federal government was built on the basis of balance, consensus and partnership, and since the beginning of drafting the constitution, we agreed on this basis, but what we did not see is balance, consensus and partnership." ". 

He added, "As for the region’s share, we agreed at the outset that 17 percent of public revenues in Iraq will be allocated to the Kurdistan Region, but as I mentioned, this percentage was reduced to 12.67 percent, only by a personal decision and without any legal basis.


 However, under any circumstance, he did not receive it." Kurdistan Region, this percentage of its financial dues from the total public revenues of Iraq.

Barzani added, "For example, most of the Iraqi revenues are collected from oil, and the federal government, including the Kurdistan Region, produces five million barrels of oil, and this percentage was the majority of the Iraqi government’s revenues, which are from oil, from which it exports four million and uses one million barrels for local use. 


It was assumed. For the Kurdistan Region to benefit from this share for its domestic consumption. This million barrels of oil were supposed to constitute 22 percent of Iraq's revenues, and these revenues were not included in the general revenues of the federal government, so what remains was 78 percent of oil revenues as revenues Public for the state budget. "

And between "with the passage of time, they used to increase the sovereign expenditures year after year until it reached 45 percent, so a percentage of 78 percent, if we count it as a hundred percent, we notice that 45 percent is allocated to sovereign expenditures, and it was assumed that the Kurdistan region would be included from these expenses." And the rest, which is 55 percent, was distributed to the Kurdistan Region and the rest of the Iraqi provinces. "

He explained, "If we analyze these figures, and even if the proportion of the Kurdistan Region was 12.67 percent out of 78 percent, then in any case the Kurdistan Region did not receive 12.6 percent of the general budget of Iraq, and what was sent to the Kurdistan Region was less than 5 percent of the total budget. For the Iraqi state. "

The regional government chief stressed, "We believe that there is injustice towards the Kurdistan Region when they say that the revenues of the Kurdistan Region come at the expense of other regions in Iraq, and this is not true at all, because there is no text or scientific basis for determining the percentage of the population of the Kurdistan Region if it is 12 One percent or 17 percent. "

He pointed out, "We previously agreed on a percentage of 17 percent, but the question: On what basis the percentage was reduced to 12 percent, and this was not on any scientific basis. And the best solution for each party that all parties receive their due financial rights is to conduct a census in order to know how many residents of a region are."


 Kurdistan and all the components from Arabs, Kurds, Turkmen and Christians, so that we know the number of the population, and we also know what are the dues that the Kurdistan Region is entitled to according to the percentage of the population from the total revenues of the federal government, and at that time no problem will remain.

He added, "But the question is if we assume that these revenues were sent to the Kurdistan Region, and if the Kurdistan Region considers it part of Iraq, and we are in fact a federal entity within federal Iraq. The question is why there is sensitivity and a prevailing belief that this is at the expense of other regions, because we are citizens Iraqis, therefore, we must be treated with equality, but the question is: What about the remaining revenues that are in the possession of the federal government? What did the federal government do with these remaining revenues for the rest of the other regions of Iraq?

He stressed, "If we compare the situation in the Kurdistan Region in terms of economic structure and urban development with the rest of the regions in Iraq, we notice that there is a very big difference, and this is not because the Kurdistan Region takes a greater part of its financial dues, on the contrary, despite all the problems, I believe that there is a good administration in the Kurdistan Region, which was able to develop the Kurdistan Region and bring it to this level, and if we look at the rest of the regions in Iraq, the 95 percent of the revenues that are in the possession of the federal government, what did you do with these revenues, give us an example for the Kurdistan Region to emulate Let us say that we follow the example of this city in Iraq or celebrate the development of this region in Iraq in order to be an example for the Kurdistan Region, to make it clear to us that the revenues were spent better than in the Kurdistan Region.

Barzani promised, "These accusations are only to cover the administrative failure of officials in successive governments in Iraq, and they have not performed their duties well in other regions, and it is unfortunate that the Kurds are the easiest to hold them responsible, so we think it is not fair to say that the Kurdistan region has developed itself on Calculating other areas, "he said.

Barzani said during an interview with a number of media, that "after the federal government cut the budget on the Kurdistan region, it exported oil at a very small percentage, in order to guarantee revenues for the administration of the Kurdistan region, because, unfortunately, the federal government did not implement its constitutional obligations regarding sending salaries and the budget. Due to the Kurdistan Region .


"After that, changes took place, and after ISIS attacked and controlled many areas, including Mosul and Tikrit, and it was heading towards Kirkuk, and if it were not for the Peshmerga forces, the oil fields would have fallen under the control of ISIS, and have become outside the control of the federal government, because the federal army was not present in These areas are in any way, and the Peshmerga forces protected Kirkuk and its oil fields, and the oil was exported . "


He continued, "Kurdistan Region gets less than its rights from oil, exported less than its share, used less than its share for domestic consumption, and got less than its revenues and dues, and this issue did not start in the time of Adel Abdul Mahdi, and this was before that, it was in 2014, and with The passage of time occurred developments and the emergence of ISIS, and then, unfortunately, in the last moments of the government of Adel Abdul Mahdi, Baghdad cut the salaries of Kurdistan Region employees .


The Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government stated, "Our problems are not only related to financial revenues and oil only. Rather, the contentious issues with the federal government are deeply rooted, as we have the disputed areas and the issue of Kirkuk and the Peshmerga and the lack of implementation of the constitution, and there are many issues that have not been implemented, and focus on the issue of oil." The budget is a perversion of the real issue of the federal government's obligations and their fulfillment . "


Regarding the issue of the oil law, Barzani said, "The government has not been able to pass the oil and gas law in parliament until now, and in the past there have been long discussions in this regard. The Kurdistan Region has expressed its willingness to participate in the process of drafting an oil and gas law in Iraq, and the federal government has not responded. For this request, this law has not been passed . "


He pointed out that "there are two laws that the Iraqi government relies on, and they are two laws that belong to the previous regime," noting that "the federal government has canceled all the laws of the previous regime, but with regard to Arabization in the Kurdish regions according to the decisions of the previous regime, it is continuing, and it is still continuing in many of these."


 The regions, and secondly, the issue of oil, which was established according to a central policy rather than a federal policy. After 2005, the constitution stipulated a federal government and these laws should have been compatible with the federal system in Iraq, and Iraq was failing to pass these laws to suit the current circumstances .
 



Regarding SOMO, Barzani pointed out that "SOMO is an institution that was established in the era of the previous regime, and does not represent the current federal system. We submitted a suggestion that if SOMO has a desire to be a company that is trusted by all Iraqis, then we ask that the Kurdistan Region be a participant in its management, to the extent What they want to know about the revenues and production of oil in the Kurdistan Region, the Kurdistan Region and its people have the right to be informed of the quantities of export and production of oil in other regions of Iraq.

Economy News - Baghdad



The Kurdistan Regional Government revealed, on Sunday, an upcoming visit of a high-level Kurdish delegation to Baghdad, to install financial dues in the draft budget for 2021, while the Kurdistan Democratic Party stated that the visit aims to solve all outstanding problems with the federal government.

The spokesman for the Deputy Prime Minister, Samir Hawrami, said in statements followed by Al-Iqtisad News that it is likely that a delegation headed by the Deputy Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government, Qubad Talabani, will visit the capital, Baghdad, to discuss the outstanding problems in the issue of the budget. 

He added that "this visit will complement the previous meetings, and its aim is to stabilize the financial dues for the Kurdistan region, in the draft federal budget for the year 2021."

As the deputy of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Sherwan Dubardani, said, "The delegation will be accompanied by a number of officials, especially those responsible for the files related to the visit, such as the oil and gas file, employee salaries, outlets, peshmerga salaries, and the file of the disputed areas."

He pointed out that "these problems remained pending with Baghdad, and the regional government has shown its willingness to solve these problems in light of the Iraqi constitution."

He continued, "We hope, through the delegation's visit, to reach an agreement in order to fix the paragraph of the region’s share and entitlements in the federal budget, so that these problems do not recur, and that the issue of the budget and the salaries of employees in the region be kept away from political issues and the problems of the region and the federal government in the future."

And that "the personnel file, the oil file, and the ports file, all will be submitted in a transparent manner to the federal government, in order to end all these problems in cooperation with Baghdad."

He continued, "As for the remaining months, the agreement is as happened in the 2019 budget, as Baghdad sends the agreed amount for salaries, which covers 51 percent of the employees' salaries, and the rest of the region pays it from internal resources and sells oil."

Economy News - Baghdad





A high-ranking delegation from the Kurdistan Regional Government headed by the deputy prime minister of the region, Qubad Talabani, arrived on Tuesday, in the capital, Baghdad. 

A spokesman for Deputy Prime Minister Samir Hawrami said, "The visit comes as an extension of the previous meetings between the Kurdistan Region and the federal government," according to "Rudaw".

He added that the discussions will revolve around the outstanding differences, including in particular the financial dues for the Kurdistan Region and how to fix them in the draft budget law for 2021. 

He stressed that the Kurdistan Regional Government has shown its willingness to reach an agreement with the federal government on oil and non-oil revenues and border crossings. 

The delegation will start its meetings today with the existence of sub-committees to discuss the legal details and find a way out of the controversial issues. 

So far, Baghdad and Erbil have not reached a definitive agreement, amid talk of several scenarios for an agreement. 

A member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Sherwan Mirza, said that there is a tendency not to rely on a percentage to determine the Kurdistan Region’s share of the budget because Baghdad had never previously committed to sending the specified rates. 

He explained that based on the population rate in Iraq, Kurdistan's share in the budget should not be less than 15%, but Baghdad has never sent this percentage of the budget during the past years, so the agreement will be on a specific amount of money instead of a percentage. 

Baghdad and Erbil previously agreed to send the federal government 320 billion dinars per month to the Kurdistan Region for the months of August, September and October until the 2021 budget is approved, in return for handing over 50% of the border crossing revenues to the region.
