Regarding the quota seats, Talabani stated that they will advocate for the rights of every community without any kind of discrimination. "While we have never opposed the inclusion of the quota seats of the minorities, our primary goal and endeavour are to ensure that they can be truly represented in the Kurdistan parliament," he stated.

During the meeting, the resumption of oil exports and the budget issue were discussed. He emphasised that the KRG is prepared to resume oil exports and will not hinder the resumption of the process.

Talabani indicated that significant progress has been made in addressing the matter of budget and salaries for the employees of the Region. He expressed the readiness of a KRG team to visit Baghdad with the aim of reaching a conclusive agreement on the matters of salaries and budget.
