MP for the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, Hassan Ali, confirmed, on Tuesday, that the crisis between Baghdad and Erbil over the budget is uncomplicated and can be resolved within hours, indicating that the negotiations will end before next Saturday.

He added, “The agreement will be easy during the coming days, and there are no complications in the negotiations, as some indicate, but the legal texts will be the only solution between the two parties.”

Ali explained, “The Kurdish delegation will return before next Saturday, which is the date for passing the budget in the House of Representatives to discuss the latest developments and put the final touches on it.”
