A source told Shafaq News Agency; The Kurdish delegation headed by Qubad Talabani will hold a meeting this evening, Monday, with representatives of the Kurdish blocs in the Parliamentary Finance Committee to discuss the region’s share and the financial revenues.

In December 2020, Iraq’s cabinet approved a 2021 draft budget of 150 trillion Iraqi dinars ($103 billion) as the country wrestles with an economic and financial crisis due to low crude prices.
The draft 2021 budget is based on a world oil price of $42 a barrel and expected oil exports of 3.25 million barrels per day (bpd), including 250,000 bpd from the Kurdish region.
