 BasNews   20/08/2019 - 00:43  Published inKurdistan
 

ERBIL - A delegation from Iraq is expected to visit the Kurdistan Region in the near future to discuss the subjects of oil and budget, a Kurdish lawmaker revealed on Monday.

Talking to BasNews, Mohammed Amin Fars, a Kurdish MP at the Iraqi Parliament, said that the delegates are invited by the Kurdistan Region's Parliament presidency for talks on the issues of oil and Erbil's share from the federal budget for the year 2020.

Earlier the day, the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) said in a statement that Baghdad has cut part of Erbil's share from the budget as the federal government accused the Kurdistan Region of not handing over 250,000 barrels per day to Iraq based on a previous agreement between the two sides.

In a statement to reporters on Monday, KRG spokesperson Jutyar Adil said that the Kurdistan Region's annual share from the budget is IQD 12.84 trillion, while the central government sends only IQD 5.44 trillion.

Fars, however, said that the region is prepared to send the requested 250,000 barrels per day in hopes of address the remaining disputes between Erbil and Baghdad.

Adel said in a press conference attended by Rudaw Media Network, "The amount deducted by the Iraqi government monthly, far more than the value of 250 thousand barrels of oil, while the Kurdistan Regional Government expressed its willingness to explain all the details related to this file during the meeting of the committees to be held a few days later ". 

He added that "many steps have been taken in this direction, and in the same context has been formed special committees to resolve the points of controversy." 

The spokesman for the Kurdistan Regional Government that "Baghdad and Erbil agree to resolve the outstanding problems, especially the oil and financial files and article 140 of the Constitution, and several other files, in the interest of both sides, has also been formed several committees to discuss and solve problems." 

Adel said that "the priority of the Kurdistan Regional Government is to pay the salaries of employees in fixed monthly dates," pointing out that "the region delivers revenue of 250 thousand barrels of oil to Baghdad." 

He pointed out that "the fiscal budget law for 2019 set 12% share for the Kurdistan region, but Baghdad has only sent 452 billion dinars until the eighth month," stressing that "the regional government has good intentions to agree with Baghdad, but will not give up their rights, She is optimistic about reaching an agreement. "

The Iraqi Prime Minister, Adel Abdul Mahdi, had demanded earlier to "solve the problem of exporting the Kurdistan region of more than 250 thousand barrels of oil," pointing out that "the budget did not address such a situation, and we need to discuss and dialogue with the region," and said that "The budget law obliged the Kurdistan region to deliver 250 thousand barrels of oil to the federal government daily, and if the region does not deliver this quota will be deducted from the region's share of the equivalent," he added: It only receives salaries, and this is a right for our people in Kurdistan because they are our children. " 

He also noted that "the government pays salaries and dues to the Kurdistan region under the budget, and does not pay the rest part because the budget law obliged it to deduct the corresponding amounts represented by the value of 250 thousand barrels of oil per day," as he put it.

I was looking for certain things back then and knew it would take a long time too, even though I really can not check it off the list just yet, it is looking really good, in the right direction.

 

They are fighting corruption, country is secure as they can be, , and they seem to be reconciling now. The investment is setup to come to the country and the banking system is just waiting in place I believe. They are not of the woods just yet, I am still very cautious and ready for a nothing burger anytime still. Btw Chuck, good seeing you, it has been awhile since I said hello, hello my friend.

Kurdistan Parliament Delegation to Visit Baghdad, Discuss Disputed Areas

 
 Basnews English 21/08/2019 - 12:59 Published in Kurdistan
 

ERBIL — A delegation for Kurdistan Region’s parliamentary committee for the Kurdish areas outside the jurisdiction of the KRG is preparing to visit Baghdad soon where they will discuss the deteriorating situation across the contested Kurdish territories.

Since October 2017, the Iraqi government controls Kirkuk, Tuz Khurmatu and many other disputed Kurdish territories, which are being constantly challenged by the remnants of the Islamic State.

The parliamentary committee in Kurdistan Region held a meeting on Tuesday to discuss the challenges. It is now planning field visits to Makhmour, Sinjar, and Nineveh Plains to prepare a comprehensive report on the security situation across these areas.

The committee will later visit Baghdad to submit the report to the Iraqi parliament and relevant authorities at the federal government of Iraq.

Baghdad not fulfilling its duty toward Kurdistan Region: Kurdish lawmaker

Baghdad not fulfilling its duty toward Kurdistan Region: Kurdish lawmaker

ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – The Federal Government of Iraq always pursues Baghdad’s rights over the Kurdistan Region’s oil, but overlooks its constitutional duty toward the autonomous region, a Kurdish lawmaker in Iraq said on Wednesday.

Mayada Najar, an Iraqi Parliament member from the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), said Iraqi lawmakers from Sunni factions tend to ask Kurdistan to commit to the Iraqi Constitution regarding the transfer of Kurdish oil, but ignore Baghdad’s “lack of commitment in delivering Kurdistan’s constitutional rights.”

“Iraq did not abide by any legal responsibility toward the Kurdistan Region as they owe Kurdistan a lot of money when they cut its budget share for almost five years,” Najar told Kurdistan 24.

Baghdad has continuously neglected Article 140 of Iraq’s Constitution related to the status of disputed areas, has not recognized Kurdish as the second formal language in Iraq, has not provided Peshmerga their rights, and not allocated four years’ worth of payment to farmers in the Kurdistan Region.

Another shortcoming from Baghdad is the lack of security in disputed territories. Instead of implementing joint security between Peshmerga and Iraqi forces to address the security void, the Iraqi government blames the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) for failing to deliver oil to Baghdad.

“Misunderstandings between Erbil and Baghdad have taken things toward a bad turn,” Hasan Ali, another Kurdish lawmaker in Iraq from the Patriotic Union Party (PUK), told Kurdistan 24.

“The KRG has initiated many attempts for an agreement with Baghdad on the disputes among them; however, each different Iraqi administration has been less than shortcoming toward the Kurdistan Region,” Ali added.

Relations between Kurdistan and Iraq weakened after the federal government cut the region’s share of the national budget in 2014, and worsened in the aftermath of the KRG’s historic independence referendum in 2017.

Tensions have since decreased after the exchange of delegations from both sides following the autonomous Kurdish government’s continuous calls for dialogue to resolve all problems peacefully.
