Se­nior Kur­dish of­fi­cial says Kurds will not let the bud­get bill be passed this way

Se­nior Kur­dish of­fi­cial, Arif Tay­fur, said that the is­sues be­tween Bagh­dad and Er­bil still re­mained out­stand­ing partly be­cause of the short­ages in the 2014 bud­get bill which have been sent by the Iraqi gov­ern­ment to par­lia­ment for pass­ing.

Tay­fur, who is also the deputy of Iraqi Par­lia­ment Speaker, crit­i­cized the Iraqi gov­ern­ment for putting pun­ish­ing con­di­tions against Kur­dis­tan Re­gion in the bill.

“We have been stand­ing against the bill to be dis­cussed and ap­proved in the par­lia- ment. But the Shi­ite sides have been try­ing to make it ap­proved as soon as pos­si­ble. Be­cause the MPs of Iraqiya and Al-mut­tahidun lists have de­cided not to at­tend the ses­sions, Kurds will be more ef­fec­tive in the par­lia­ment,” Tay­fur ex­plained

Al­though the is­sues have be­come very com­pli­cated, Tay­fur hopes Dr. Rozh Nury Shawys, who is the Iraq deputy Prime Min­is­ter, to re­turn to Bagh­dad with new pro­pos­als aim­ing to solve the is­sues and to re­move the parts in the bill which de­prive Kurds from prac­tic­ing their rights.

Con­cern­ing the se­cu­rity sit­u­a­tion in Iraq, Tay­fur, noted that Iraqi is pass­ing through a very bad se­cu­rity sit­u­a­tion and ex­plo­sions oc­cur daily, but Kur­dis­tan Re­gion has re­mained safe and se­cure.

“Con­trol­ling the cur­rent con­di­tions is im­pos­si­ble and the Iraqi gov­ern­ment is no longer able to pro­tect peo­ple’s se­cu­rity. The in­tel­li­gence agen­cies are very weak and the gov­ern­ment has no re­sponses and has no pos­i­tive and prac­ti­cal ap­proaches for solv­ing the po­lit­i­cal and se­cu­rity is­sues in Iraq. Ac­tu­ally this chaos has cre­ated neg­a­tive im­pacts upon the lives of all Iraqi peo­ple.” He di­vulged
