The Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al Abadi announced that his govenrment will take on paying Kurdish employees and the Peshmerga salaries due to Kurdistan Regional Government’s failure to do so.

The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) has had between 600-900k/barrels per day in oil sales but no transparency on funds. 

It is noteworthy that residents of the autonomous Iraqi province of Kurdistan have rarely been paid by the KRG.

Earlier today, Al Abadi said that the KRG is nearing its bankruptcy due to the prevalence of corruption among the officials and their families.

With the Iraqi Forces assuming control of oil fields, the Iraqi government is ensuring Kurdistan employees to get their salaries on time.
