SULAIMANI —The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) said on Saturday (May 2) that it will start distributing salaries to public sector workers depending on its financial capability, but without announcing when distribution would actually take place.

The cabinet said in a statement that it will start taking measures to recoup debts it is owed by companies.

According to a source in the finance ministry, the ministry has recommended to the government that, if Baghdad continues to freeze budget transfers, it distribute what it is able to public sector employees at reduced amounts.
