Oil revenues belong to all Iraqis rather than one party, community, says MP

Baghdad (AIN) –MP, Abdul al-Salam al-Maliki, of the State of Law Coalition confirmed that the oil revenues belong to all the Iraqis rather than to a single party or community.

He stated to AIN “The parliament voted on the Federal Budget and endorsed it through the majority,” noting that “The Budget endorsement was necessary because delaying it would have serious negative impacts on the economic structure of the country.”

“Kurds have to respect the will of the majority and to avoid the reactionary statements since the Budget was fair concerning their share that reached 17%,” he added.

“We are convinced that any appeal to be submitted by the Kurds against the endorsement of the Budget to the Federal Court will be rejected due to lack of any legal justification,” he concluded.
