2019-11-27 |

A preliminary agreement reached by the last meeting held between the federal government and the delegation of the Kurdistan region, in which he almost completely resolved the benefits of Kurdistan budget twenty-two and the salaries of the region's employees in return for the implementation of the latter's oil commitments to deliver two hundred and fifty thousand barrels per day to the federal government through SOMO.

The agreement, which was the result of many lengthy talks, says Deputy Prime Minister and Oil Minister Thamer Ghadhban that its implementation will begin early next year. But that does not mean the talks between the two sides will end, but will continue to discuss other details and the rest of the things described as pending.
 
 
Observers found this agreement a positive step towards moisturizing the atmosphere between the Center and the region, but politicians criticized the agreement, which they said did not refer to any guarantee to deliver the agreed amount of oil exports, and thus repeat the scenario of the previous agreement, stressing the need to impose guarantees on the Kurdistan region in the event He did not deliver his agreed oil exports to Baghdad.

Baghdad expected to transfer nearly 1 trillion IQD to Erbil monthly: MP

SULAIMANI — The Government of Iraq is expected to send nearly one trillion Iraqi dinars ($838 million) per month to the Kurdistan Region in 2020 after Baghdad and Erbil reached an agreement over oil exports and the budget, a parliamentarian has said.

Coordinator of the Council of Representatives' Finance Committee Ahmed Safar said the federal government would transfer the Region's full share of the budget for 2020 after Erbil began exporting 250,000 barrels of oil per day through Baghdad.

“Next year will be different for the Kurdistan Region because it will hand over the oil,” he told Kurdistan Democratic Party-affiliated media on Wednesday (November 27).

“Baghdad is expected to transfer nearly 1 trillion dinars to the Kurdistan Region according to the budget which Iraq has for next year,” he added.

The KRG and the federal government reached an agreement to resolve their ongoing disagreement over oil on Monday, belatedly implementing the terms of the 2019 budget.

The Kurdistan Region is expected to export 250,000 barrels of oil per day through Baghdad to Turkey’s Ceyhan port. In return, Baghdad will send the Region’s full share of the federal budget.

A KRG delegation is expected to visit Baghdad next week.

Oil is just one of several persistent disagreements between the two governments, which also include security and the disputed areas.

On the other hand, ruled out the Iraqi parliament member, Ahmed al-Jubouri, Kurdistan's commitment to any agreement with Baghdad, stressing in an interview with the "new Arab" that this is not the first time that the dialogue in this regard will not be the last.

He continued: "Needle anesthesia no more, and I do not think that the region will respond to the requests of the central government, especially that in the past budget was exporting more than 500 thousand barrels per day, and we included in the budget provision to deliver the region 250 barrels per day, but he did not deliver anything to this day This".

Same here Starr....the US, Great Britain, and Germany have made the rounds with Iraq over the years trying to hammer out a deal that all could agree on. Is this finally it?  :shrug:  Even if they sign something, implementation could be years down the road with these jack leg camel jockeys.
