Masrour Barzani calls Al-Sudani and the Kurdistan Regional Government sends a delegation to Baghdad

On Wednesday, the Kurdistan Regional Government stated that Masrour, the Prime Minister of the region, had a phone conversation with Muhammad Shia’a Al-Sudani, the Federal Prime Minister.

A representative of the regional government, Peshwa Hauramani, stated briefly that following Masrour Barzani’s communication with Al-Sudani, a delegation from the Kurdistan Regional Government will be heading to Baghdad. Shafaq News Agency received reports that a government delegation from Erbil will visit Baghdad later today to address the concerns regarding salaries and Kurdistan’s allocation of the financial budget.

On Tuesday, the Kurdistan Regional Government expressed that it is the responsibility of the federal government to provide monthly salaries for employees and workers in the public sector within the region.

According to a statement made by Peshwa Hauramani, the spokesperson for the regional government, the Kurdistan Regional Government no longer has control over the oil revenues. The responsibility for providing salaries and financial dues to the citizens of the Kurdistan Region in accordance with the budget law now falls on the Iraqi government, as agreed upon.

He stated that they have fulfilled all their duties and legal obligations concerning this matter. The Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Region has been in contact to urge the Iraqi government to promptly send salaries to those who are entitled to them without any further delay.

Hauramani stated that some political parties and individuals have not acknowledged the legal and constitutional position of the Kurdistan Region over the past few years. They have not acted as responsible citizens interested in the well-being of the people of Kurdistan. Hauramani’s message to them is to refrain from further damaging the status of the Kurdistan Region. Instead, they should take responsibility and act in accordance with the constitutional rights of the people of Kurdistan.

The regional government’s spokesperson emphasized that salaries are crucial to people’s lives and livelihoods, and should not be used for political gain or to harm the legal and constitutional status of the Kurdistan Region.

On Sunday, July 23, Awat Sheikh Janab, the Minister of Finance and Economy in the Kurdistan Region, announced that all of Baghdad’s demands had been met. In addressing public opinion in Kurdistan, he stated that inquiries regarding monthly salaries should be directed to the Iraqi Ministry of Finance going forward.
