KRG is "optimistic" about reaching a final settlement with Baghdad

Shafaq News / The Prime Minister of Kurdistan Region, Masrour Barzani, expressed his optimism that a final agreement can be reached to resolve the disputes between Erbil and Baghdad.

Barzani tweeted today, "While there have been many obstacles, we have a strong negotiating team, drawn from across the KRG and united in its purpose".

 He added, " I am optimistic we can reach a final settlement with the federal government". 

 The delegation of the region had previously made several visits to the capital, Baghdad, after the previous federal government headed by Adel Abdul Mahdi stopped funding the salaries of employees and workers in the public sector in Kurdistan.

 The differences and outstanding issues between Erbil and Baghdad are based on the region's share of the financial budgets, the entitlements of the Peshmerga forces, the export of oil and the disputed areas covered by Article 140 of the permanent Iraqi constitution.

Kurdistan Regional Government has shown, on several occasions, its willingness to deliver 250 thousand barrels of crude oil per day in exchange for the Iraqi government funding of employees' salaries by 450 billion Iraqi dinars per month.
