Prime Minister Barzani made the comments during a meeting with Iraq’s Planning Minister Nouri Sabah al-Dulaimi in Erbil.
During the meeting, the Iraqi minister said there is a good chance to resolve the outstanding disputes between Erbil and Baghdad peacefully, within the framework of Iraq’s Constitution as the relations between both sides have significantly improved, a statement from Barzani’s press office read.
The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and the Federal Government of Iraq have long-standing issues related to budget, oil and gas, disputed territories, and a lack of respect for the country’s constitution.
Dulaimi praised the experience of the autonomous Kurdish region over the past decades, describing it as “successful and well-established.”
Barzani affirmed the Kurdistan Region’s commitment to resolving differences peacefully in accordance with the constitution, the statement said.
