The federal government in Baghdad reached an agreement with Kurdish MPs in parliament regarding the salary payments of Kurdistan's employees, Anadolu reported yesterday.

According to the spokesman of Kurdistan's Regional Government, Jutiar Adel, a "positive" meeting was held between the Kurdish blocs and representatives of the federal government in Baghdad.

Both sides agreed on several matters including the retention of coordination and cooperation regarding salary payments.
