The Parliamentary Finance Committee confirmed that the Kurdistan Regional Government did not hand over any revenues to the federal government.
Committee member MP Naji Al-Saidi said, "The paragraph on the Kurdistan region in the budget law is very clear, as it stipulates that (the region cannot hand over any funds from the general budget without handing over its oil and non-oil revenues to the federal government)," noting that "the Kurdistan region has not handed over any revenue to the federal government.
He added, "The delivery of 400 billion dinars to the Kurdistan region constitutes a violation of the budget law."
It is noteworthy that the Al-Kazemi government handed Kurdistan large sums in two payments to distribute salaries to the region’s employees and one million liters of gasoline per day, but the region did not hand Baghdad a single dinar of oil and non-oil imports, contrary to the agreement between the two sides.
