PUK Co-leader Lahur Talabany issued a statement on the agreement between Kurdistan Region and Iraq, on Wednesday night, March 31,2021.

 

Below is the context of his statement:

After a lot of pressure and effort, our hard work has reached a result and we have secured the Kurdistan Region’s share of the Federal budget bill for 2021. This is an important beginning for mending relations between the Kurdistan Regional Government and the Federal Government, to solve the ongoing issues between the two sides, as well as provide the full salaries of the region's civil servants without reduction, who have been suffering for a long time. This achievement is the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan’s gift to the people of Kurdistan.

I want to thank the Kurdistan Regional Government’s negotiation team, the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan’s faction in the Iraqi House of Representatives, and Kurdish members of the Finance Committee for their continued efforts to reach an agreement with Baghdad. I thank the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan’s Leadership Council for their efforts, who in accordance with us, insisted that it is in the highest interest of our nation that both sides come to an agreement. I also want to thank all the Iraqi political parties and sides whose support helped secure the Kurdistan Region's share of the budget. We hope that the Kurdistan Regional Government and the Federal Government will abide by the agreement between them as has been established and voted on in the bill, which is in the highest interest of the people of Kurdistan and Iraq.
