Both parties discussed the issue of forming the new Iraqi government, stressing the need for all political forces to participate in the government, from Kurds, Sunnis, Shiites, and all components, to achieve stability in Baghdad.


During the meeting, the two sides discussed the need for the government program to be clear regarding the participation of components and the demands of the demonstrators, and the two sides discussed the need for the new government to deal with the Kurdistan Region in accordance with the constitution, and not to make the Kurdistan Region's share of the budget a political issue.
