Iraqi Kurdish deputy PM says deal with Baghdad 'easy' if salaries paid

"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.
