A member of the Parliamentary Finance confirmed, “There is no disagreement regarding the region’s budget file, but there is a need to organize the agreement mechanism between Baghdad and Erbil in terms of accounts, numbers, agreements, and a mechanism for collecting revenues, as well as scheduling the region’s debts.”
