Al-Abadi offers Kurds Salaries for Oil

By John Lee.

Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi (pictured) has reportedly offered to pay the salaries of the KRG’s employees if it ceases its independent oil exports.

Facing a financial crisis due to low oil prices, the KRG announced recently that its employees will be paid only partial salaries until further notice, and that unpaid wages will be considered as loans to the government.

The Prime Minister added that he hopes the KRG will remain part of Iraq.
