Baghdad (AIN) –A source among the sides that attended the meeting of the parliament Chairmanship and the leaders of the political blocs revealed the reasons hindered reaching agreement among the blocs over the law draft of 2013 budget.
The source stated to AIN "The meeting did not result in reaching agreement because of several disputes where the Kurdistani Alliance called to avoid reducing budget of Kurdistan Region to less than 17% and to pay the salaries of the Peshmerga from the budget of the Ministry of Defense in Federal Government in addition to allocating 4 trillion IQD as dues to the foreign firms working in KR."
