Tishwash: The Democrat: The region delivered all what Baghdad requested and is waiting for positive steps to implement Article 140

The Kurdistan Democratic Party announced, on Tuesday, the delivery of all numbers and data requested by the federal government regarding the number of employees, oil contracts, their nature, and the contracting companies.

A spokesman for the parliamentary party bloc, Aram Muhammad, said, “The Kurdistan Regional Government has delivered all the numbers and data requested by the federal government, whether related to the number of employees, oil contracts, their nature and the companies contracting with them.”

He added, “The basis for Iraq’s stability is resolving differences between the center and the region, and its impact will be positive for the people from Basra to the region.”

Muhammad indicated, “There are parties [he did not name] trying to obstruct the agreement, in return, other parties contribute in their role to reach a solution that satisfies all parties.”

He explained, “There are complex files, whether in the oil file, Article 140, the Peshmerga and the region’s share of the budget, but in most of these files we have taken good steps towards a solution.”

Aram concluded his statement by saying, “The successive political and health crises over the past two years may have prevented the achievement of concrete results on the ground, but despite this there are productive steps.”

The head of the Iraqi coalition, Mr. Ammar al-Hakim, said during his meeting with the Emir of the Islamic Group in Kurdistan, Sheikh Ali Babir and his accompanying delegation, that dialogue and concessions are in the public interest and that everyone has a culture of compromise and meeting in the middle is sufficient to find a solution to the outstanding problems.   link
