KRG Prime Minister actively engages in the harvesting process in Erbil province
The Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government, Masrour Barzani, visited the Ziraraty region in Erbil on 27th May, where he met with local farmers, inquired about their situation, and actively participated in the harvesting of grain.
During a meeting with farmers, the Prime Minister emphasised the Kurdistan Regional Government’s commitment to prioritising the agricultural sector and effectively marketing the produce of the region’s farmers. He expressed his concern about farmers being unable to sell their produce and assured them that steps will be taken to address this issue.
Furthermore, the Prime Minister strongly condemned the recent amendments made to the federal budget draft law, deeming them dishonest, oppressive, and part of a conspiracy against the Kurdistan Region orchestrated by a group of lawmakers in the Iraqi parliament. He asserted that the KRG would vigorously oppose these conspiracies and prevent their occurrence.
Barzani pointed out that, unfortunately, a few elected lawmakers who are meant to represent the region have collaborated in this conspiracy and are now celebrating the restriction of the Kurdistan Region’s authority. Nonetheless, the Prime Minister emphasised that the KRG will overcome these dissenting voices and continue to protect the region’s interests.
