“My government pledges to eliminate the existing contradictions with the government of Iraqi Kurdistan,” Abadi said.

Authorities of Iraqi Kurdistan, an autonomous region in the north of Iraq, accuse Baghdad of in the unjust distribution of oil revenues and demand higher salaries for the civil servants in the region, the level of which is significantly lower than the national average.
