Barzani: 2018's state budget is 'bad', must be annulled

Kurdistan Region Government (KRG) Nechirvan Barzani described the Iraqi state budget for the year 2018 on Tuesday as "bad", noting that it must be annulled.

In a press statement, Barzani asserted that the KRG expressed its dissatisfaction with this state budget many times.

He added that the state budget must consider the needs of all the ethnicities, stressing that it only favors one component.

This comes as the Iraqi state budget of 2018 has allocated only 12% funds to the KRG, in a downscale from the previous 17% allocations, in former state budgets.
