He said in a press statement: "The ministry tried in the previous budget to do something similar, as it presented the budget in a way that shows officials the size of Iraq's real obligations without paying them in arrears corners, so the number was large and was not politically acceptable, so it was modified and the budget was issued in its current form."
Allawi added: "The price of a barrel in the new budget will be 50 dollars, which is an adjustable number."
He explained: "The financial situation of Iraq has improved during the current year due to the rise in the price of oil and the change in the exchange rate of the dinar."
The Minister of Finance indicated that “Iraq is negotiating with the International Monetary Fund on a loan of between 3 to 4 billion dollars,” noting: “This borrowing is of a monetary nature and gives credibility to the reforms that the Ministry wishes to implement, the end of which depends on our current situation and the 2022 budget. If we are able to present it to Parliament before the parliamentary elections.”/ End 3[/rtl]
