    [size=45]An advisor to the leader of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Massoud Barzani, accused "influential forces" in Baghdad of exploiting the oil and financial disputes to "undermine" the Kurdistan Region, with  [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]  search for a way out of the political crisis.[/size]
    [size=45]Recently, statements and positions described as “escalatory” were issued by federal government officials towards Erbil, when Finance Minister Ali Allawi confirmed that the Federal Court’s decision, which judges the illegality of the oil and gas law issued by the regional parliament, “prevents allocating a share to the region in the budget,” threatening That “the amount that is transferred monthly to the region, amounting to 200 billion dinars ($138 million), will not continue either.” Baghdad also refrained from allocating a share to the region from a project to build 1,000 “model” schools within an agreement signed by Baghdad with China, while the Minister of Natural Resources revealed The Region, Kamal Muhammad Salih's Agency, reported that Baghdad had stopped sending gasoline fuel to the region.[/size]
    [size=45]Disagreements between the federal Iraqi governments and the Kurdistan Region over the oil file have been going on for years and have recently intensified after the decision of the Iraqi Federal Supreme Court, which was controversial in terms of ruling and timing, which many described as “politicised” of the illegality of the Oil and Gas Law issued in the Kurdistan Region in 2007, and the announcement of the Minister Iraqi Finance Minister Ali Abdul-Amir Allawi, last Friday, stopped sending funds allocated to the region in this year's budget, in clear violation of the federal budget law.[/size]
    [size=45]The [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]  , said that Iraq lacks a federal court formed according to the constitution and not the era of former US ruler Paul Bremer, stressing that the Iraqi Oil Marketing Company (SOMO) operates with central and not federal laws.[/size]
    [size=45]Adding that, this court was not established under the constitution, and it does not comply with its provisions at all, and therefore there is no federal court in Iraq.[/size]
    [size=45]The Federal Minister of Oil, Ihsan Abdul-Jabbar, announced again, that his ministry "will proceed with the legal and constitutional procedures that will enable us to implement the Federal Court's decision on the Kurdistan Region's oil file," he said.[/size]
    [size=45]In response to Abdul-Jabbar's statements, Kifah Mahmoud, media advisor to Kurdish leader Masoud Barzani, said that Abdul-Jabbar's statements "may be included in the political rivalries, especially since the existing problem dates back to many years, since 2014, the influential forces in Baghdad have always used the financial side. As a means of pressure on the region, when the region's share of the budget was cut for five years, amounting to about 50 billion dollars, where did this amount go? He added, “The Peshmerga forces were also deprived of their financial dues despite being part of the defense system, and the application of Article 140 of the Constitution (regarding the disputed areas), not to mention the deprivation of the region from international loans by donor countries, up to medicine. and fuel.”[/size]
    [size=45]And the Federal Ministry of Oil had previously asked, last May, the oil and gas companies operating in the region to sign new contracts with the “SOMO” company, instead of the regional government, and summoned seven companies to a commercial court that was postponed twice. In contrast, the Erbil Investigation Court ruled By “referring the commercial court sessions against international oil companies to the Erbil Court,” as well as the Kurdistan Regional Government’s Ministry of Natural Resources filing a civil lawsuit against the Federal Minister of Oil “for sending emails and letters to intimidate the oil companies operating in the region and his interference in the contractual rights of these companies and the government of Territory.”[/size]
    [size=45]However, Kifah Mahmoud explained in press statements followed by (BasNews) that the understanding concluded between Erbil and Baghdad, last year, "estimated the region's production at 460,000 barrels per day, with 250,000 barrels per day delivered at the price of the Federal Oil Marketing Company "SOMO", not The price of the region, as a result of the pressures and lawsuits brought by Baghdad against the companies, and this is not a result of today, but years ago, forcing the region to sell it at a price much lower than the price of the global market.”[/size]
    [size=45]And he continued, by saying, "In spite of this, an amount of a quarter of a million barrels per day is deducted from the region's share in the budget at the market price, and 210 thousand barrels remain, half of which goes to power plants and the other half is refined for local use, so that this quantity is not enough, what makes it imperative for Baghdad to It compensates for the remainder, meaning that the region’s share in the budget, which is less than 13 percent, reaches only 5 percent of it.”[/size]
    [size=45]President Barzani said: "If Baghdad is serious and has the will to solve crises, then the constitution is the arbiter to solve problems, but a selective interpretation of the constitution cannot be accepted."[/size]
    [size=45]It was reported that the oil dispute would be among the delegation’s negotiating terms, and  [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] , did not rule out the  withdrawal of his party from Parliament, along the lines of the “Sadrist Movement” bloc in the event of a “violation of substantive issues.”[/size]
    [size=45]Kurdish officials confirm that the region, "despite its limited capabilities," has enjoyed security stability and economic recovery, during which it was able to rapidly develop its infrastructure during the years after the fall of the former regime in 2003, while the rest of the Iraqi regions suffered from a sharp deterioration at various levels "despite the fact that The abundance of money” due to corruption, and this difference pushed Baghdad “which is under resentful public pressure” to work to undermine the entity of the region.[/size]
    [size=45]The Kurdistan Regional Government had revealed its intention to “establish two public companies to manage the oil and gas file, in the name of the Kurdistan Regional Oil and Gas Company “Kroc”, which will undertake the task of exploration, production and transportation operations, and the Kurdistan Company “COMO” is specialized in the marketing process, pointing out that “the two companies can coordinate with The two federal national oil and oil marketing companies “SOMO” in the relevant fields, and that “coordination is taking place between the Federal Ministry of Oil and the Ministry of Natural Resources in the region,” but the regional government stipulated before that “an amendment to the structure of the “SOMO” company, and its internal system, to be an institution Federal issues decisions in a joint formula that guarantees the real participation of the Kurdistan Region, and that the representative of the region has the right of veto regarding issues related to the region.[/size]
