KRG AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT REACH DEAL ON BUDGET FOR 2020: STATEMENT

Following contours of 2019 budget

SULAIMANI — The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) announced on Tuesday (December 3) that it has reached an agreement with the federal government on the 2020 federal budget.

“The Region will send 250,000 barrels of oil daily to Baghdad and in return Baghdad will send the Kurdistan Region’s share of the budget,” the KRG said in a brief statement.

The statement was light on details, but appeared to indicate that the agreement would follow the same contours of the 2019 Federal Budget Law, which was never fully implemented because Erbil refused to send its oil to Baghdad.

It added that the KRG will participate in the drafting process for the 2020 Federal Budget Law.

In its statement, the KRG also called on Kurdish lawmakers in the Council of Representatives to preserve the rights and privileges of the Kurdistan Region. This point is likely in reference to calls by protesters for constitutional changes, which have been greeted warily by Erbil.

Because of Erbil’s refusal to send 250,000 barrels of crude oil per day to Baghdad over the past 10 months, the KRG was facing the prospect of difficult negotiations over the budget. These were further complicated by the ongoing anti-establishment protests that have swept central and southern Iraq over the past two months.

An Iraqi source said that a Kurdish delegation arrived in Baghdad during the last hours to sign the final oil agreement signed with the government of Abdul-Mahdi, which provides for not talking about the quantities of oil produced during the past years by the region.

The source said in an interview with " Sputnik ", on Wednesday, that the Kurds wanted to use the period experienced by the country to pass the agreement before the formation of any new political entity or change the situation in Iraq through the uprising of the street burning for more than two months.

 

 

The source added that the agreement stipulates that the Kurdistan region from the beginning of 2020 to hand over the federal government in Baghdad daily 250 thousand barrels of oil of the region, in addition to the delegation's visit also aims to sign all items of the state budget, including the budget of the region, which includes the proportion 22 percent are in favor of the region.

 

The source pointed out that the Kurds stipulated the federal government in Baghdad to clear all the dues of the central government sold oil from Kirkuk and the Kurdistan region for 16 years, and the delivery of 250 thousand barrels from next year, knowing that the export from the region 600 thousand barrels per day.

The source pointed out that the budget of the region in the budget of Iraq rose to 22% instead of 17% because the Ministry of Finance is now run by President Fouad Masoum, and this agreement comes with the conquest of conquest and construction, specifically concluded the agreement Hadi al-Ameri and Nuri al - Maliki in exchange for taking the premiership of the conquest of the conquest after Adel's resignation عبد المهدي Free Membership.

ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) will deliver 250,000 barrels of oil per day (bpd) to Baghdad as part of an agreement that also includes the payment of financial dues within the framework of the country's fiscal budget for 2020, KRG Finance Minister Awat Sheikh Janab said on Thursday.

“We have decided to deliver 250,000 barrels of oil per day to Baghdad,” Janab said during a joint press conference in Erbil with members of the Kurdish negotiating delegation that has visited the Iraqi capital in recent weeks.

“We agreed on a formula for the payment of debts,” he added, pointing out that “most of our demands have been met in agreements with Baghdad within the draft financial budget.”

According to Janab, both Erbil and Baghdad had “reached an agreement on budget and oil.”

The KRG Finance Minister said the talks between the Kurdish delegation and officials from the Federal Government of Iraq were “successful,” noting that the reduction of the Kurdistan Region’s share of the national budget had been “a political decision.”

Erbil–Baghdad negotiations struck a pause in early October when central and southern provinces in Iraq organized widespread anti-government protests. So far, Iraqi security forces have killed over 400 demonstrators and wounded at least 16,000 others.

The KRG negotiating delegation resumed talks with Baghdad last week and, following a second visit on Monday, reached an agreement with the federal government regarding oil revenue sharing, according to Iraq’s Oil Minister, Thamer al-Ghadhban.

“If Baghdad is committed to the agreement, there will be no problem regarding the payment of the salaries of employees in Kurdistan,” Janab said on Thursday.

ERBIL AND BAGHDAD REACH UNDERSTANDING ON KRG LOANS: MINISTER

KRG to provide Baghdad with loans data
Kurdistan Regional Government Minister of Finance and Economy Awat Sheikh Janab speaks in a press conference in Erbil, December 5, 2019. 

6 Hours ago  http://www.nrttv.com/En/News.aspx?id=18133&MapID=1

 

SULAIMANI — The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) has reached an understanding with the federal government about the repayment of debt owed by the KRG, said a senior official on Thursday (December 5). 

Erbil has also agreed to hand over “all data and statistics” about loans and payroll lists to the federal government, Minister of Finance and Economy Awat Sheikh Janab said. 

“An amount [of money] will be [provided] for the Kurdistan Region’s loans,” he told reporters. 

The KRG has reached agreements with the federal government on oil exports and the Region’s share of the federal budget. The KRG said on Tuesday that that Erbil will send 250,000 barrels of oil per day to Baghdad starting next year and in return Baghdad will transfer the Region’s full share of the budget, which currently amounts to 12.67 percent.

The KRG carries a significant amount of debt, owed to both local and foreign banks. Additionally, it owes the Region's public sector employees significant sums from the salary withholding scheme that ended earlier this year.

The contours of the deals that emerged over the last two weeks appear to be similar to the provisions of the 2019 Federal Budget Law, parts of which the KRG ignored by refusing to send oil to Baghdad. It claimed that it could not do so because it had to service its debt.

Secretary of the KRG’s Council of Ministers Amanj Rahim said during the press conference that the agreements would be implemented after the federal budget law was adopted and published in the Official Gazette of Iraq next year.

He added Baghdad would continue to send employees’ salaries every month in 2020 if a federal budget was not adopted by the Council of Representatives, accordance with the 2019 law.

Because of Erbil’s refusal to comply with the 2019 budget, the KRG was facing the prospect of difficult negotiations with Baghdad for the 2020 cycle. These were further complicated by the ongoing anti-establishment protests that have swept central and southern Iraq over the past two months.
