KRG delegation visits Baghdad to discuss 2019 budget

Kurdistan Regional Government, Council of Ministers Building, Erbil
A delegation from the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) is visiting Baghdad today to discuss the budget bill of 2019, including the share of Erbil.

The delegation will attempt to increase KRG’s share from the federal budget. Baghdad has granted Erbil 12% of the budget while, according to the constitution of Iraq, the Kurds should receive 17%.

This comes a day after Erbil and Baghdad reached an agreement to resume the oil exports from the disputed province of Kirkuk.

Following a period of political deadlock in the relations between Erbil and Baghdad, the sides seem now to make progress in restoring close cooperations, especially in the field of economy and energy.
