OOTW: QUOTE FROM THE ARTICLE
OOTW: "The presidency of the Kurdistan Regional Government said in a statement Journal News, a copy of which received "The Kurdistan Regional Government announced its acceptance of the proposal made by Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi securing all four hundred thousand people, "the Kurdistan region of a million salaries, indicating that" the region needs a month to 890 billion dinars to pay salaries, including 336 billion dinars for the Peshmerga forces. "
OOTW: IN THE THREAD THERE IS A PRESS RELEASE FROM THE KURDISTAN GOVT
OOTW: IT OUTLINES THE DETAILS OF THIS AGREEMENT
OOTW: HERE IS ONE POINT
OOTW: 3. The Iraqi Federal Government requires 4.1 trillion IQD to cover monthly salaries of government employees at a time that Iraqi oil exports bring in an income of only 1.8 trillion IQD per month.
96% of the general income of Iraq comes from oil sales, so why does Prime Minister al-Abadi not talk about the sources of the 2.3 trillion IQD deficit.
The source is the reserved currency of the Central Bank of Iraq and the Kurdistan Region is constitutionally entitled to 17% of that reserve but never received it. The federal government has taken loans for all of Iraq from international sources, yet deprives the Region from access to it.
OOTW: THIS IS GREAT NEWS AND I PRAY THIS WILL FINALLY COME ABOUT
OOTW: NOW BACK TO THE HOR REPORT

noting that the Foreign Minister said, according to an official letter from the the ministry keenness to come before the House of Representatives. (WE'VE HEARD THIS BEFORE - LET'S SEE IF HE SHOWS)
OOTW: NEXT, THIS IS DISCONCERTING
OOTW: And it decided the Presidency of the Council to postpone the discussion of the draft report and the accountability and justice and the prohibition of the Baath Party and submitted by the Commission for Conciliation, accountability and justice law after it is a meeting between the heads of parliamentary blocs on Sunday, to be presented later on the agenda.

OOTW: THEY DO SAY IT WILL APPEAR LATER ON THE AGENDA AND THE LANGUAGE INDICATES THAT THERE'S CONFLICTS BETWEEN THE DRAFT LAW DEBAATHIFICATION AND ACCOUNTABILITY OF JUSTICE AND THEY MUST RESOLVE THESE BEFORE RETURNING RE DRAFTED LAWS TO BE VOTED ON
