Masrour Barzani, Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government, revealed early today, Friday, that his government has presented two suggestions to the federal government to address the issue of ensuring the region’s financial rights.
“We, as the delegation of the Kurdistan Regional Government, came to Baghdad to defend the constitutional rights of the people of Kurdistan and to reach several solutions to the current problems with the federal government,” Barzani said following his Baghdad speech.
He said, “We had an intensive and lengthy discussion with the Prime Minister, followed by the President of the Republic, the Speaker of Parliament, and the leaders of the political parties.” We urged that these issues be addressed in any manner possible, and we provided two suggestions, one short-term and one long-term, to provide financial assistance to the Kurdistan Region.
“In terms of the long-term proposal, we need to legislate and amend some laws, and in terms of the short-term proposal, a Council of Ministers session will be held on Sunday, and the political parties that we met expressed their support for the proposal so that we can provide the salaries of employees in the region for this year,” he continued. We are anticipating the Ministerial Council.
