KRG Delegation to Meet with Finance and Oil Ministers in Baghdad


ERBIL — The high-level delegation of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) is set to meet with Iraqi ministers of finance and oil to discuss a solution to their oil and budgetary disputes.

Led by Kurdistan Region Deputy Prime Minister Qubad Talabani, the Kurdish delegation is in Baghdad since last Thursday in pursuit of a settlement to the financial disagreements between Erbil and Baghdad.

Samir Hawrami, a spokesperson for Talabani’s office, told Kurdistan 24 that the delegation will also meet with officials from Iraq’s State Organization for Marketing of Oil (SOMO).

Despite the fact that the Iraqi factions at the parliament passed the budget deficit law last month without the Kurds, the KRG has agreed to fully comply with the law in order to show goodwill in its negotiations with Baghdad, and leave no excuses for the federal government.
