Cougar said in a statement to the Iraqi National News Agency ( NINA) that the government needs 6.5 trillion dinars per month to pay the salaries of employees and retirees and the social protection network, and that the total of these salaries within a year reaches approximately 78 trillion dinars, and this is not currently available.
He explained that the state’s revenues from the beginning of 2020 until the 17th of last month amounted to 33 trillion dinars, in addition to 5 trillion rounds from last year and 15 trillion internal borrowing, bringing the amount up to 53 trillion dinars.
He added that the remainder of the total amount of 53 trillion dinars today does not reach 2 trillion dinars, and therefore the government is unable to disburse salaries.
He indicated that the government should settle bringing revenues to it only, maximizing those revenues, eliminating corruption, and setting a solid financial reform plan to get out of the current economic crisis quickly. / End 9[/rtl]
