"Despite the attempt by some to mix papers and attack its members, the committee has made great efforts to include all the rights of citizens, employees and non-employees, and workers in all sectors and for all components in the budget bill at the level of segments, ministries, or governorates to ensure the establishment of service and strategic projects."

In the context, a source in Kurdistan Democratic Bloc revealed that a Kurdish delegation will head to Baghdad within the next 24 hours to settle the issue of Kurdistan Region's share in the 2021 budget.
