The Patriotic Union of Kurdistan bloc in the Kurdistan Parliament welcomed the federal government's decision regarding the Kurdistan Region's share of the federal budget for the year 2021.


"The Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, since the emergence of the financial crises, stressed the need to agree with the federal government and correct the relations that witnessed some apathy during the last period," Ziyad Jabbar, head of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan bloc, said during a press conference.


"The co-presidents of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan have made great efforts to consolidate the financial rights and entitlements of the Kurdistan Region and affirmed their continuous support for the negotiating delegation in its dialogues with the federal government in order to establish the rights of citizens."


He added, "We call on the Kurdistan Regional Government to cancel the deduction of employee salaries after the rise in oil prices and the agreement with the federal government, which entered into force because the citizens suffered a lot from the financial crisis and must be redressed."


"We also call on the Kurdistan Regional Government to continue its dialogues with the federal government to implement the rest of the paragraphs contained in the Federal Budget Law for the year 2021," Ziyad Jabbar said.
