, The Follow-up Cell in the Prime Minister's Office revealed today, Friday, that the government will be able to distribute the salaries of the current month of March, while it will resort to some solutions to ensure the provision of salaries next month.
The head of the government follow-up cell, Mustafa Sanad, said in a radio statement followed by Mawazine News, that "Iraq's monthly income from oil is currently estimated at one billion dollars only (after the price of a barrel drops to 18 dollars)."
Sanad said, "The salaries of employees amount to 3 and a half billion per month, which may push Iraq to borrow or to print the currency as a last option," as the state of the state will be affected starting from the next month.
