The deputy prime minister of Iraqi Kurdistan said a political and economic deal with Baghdad could easily be reached if the federal government agreed to pay the salaries of the region's employees, including its armed forces.

"If Baghdad pays the full salaries of people who receive salaries from the government in the Kurdistan region, including the peshmerga, we can easily and naturally agree with it," said Qubad Talabani on his official Facebook page.
