Al-Kaabi calls for the suspension of pensions received by non-Iraqi citizens
The First Deputy Hassan Karim al-Kaabi is following with great concern media reports concerning pension allocations for non-Iraqi citizens, causing the state budget to be overstretched and carrying additional expenses in light of the economic situation in the country.
Al-Kaabi stressed the importance of giving priority to the needs of the Iraqi citizen with full respect for Arab brothers.
He called on the government to stop the disbursement from the pension fund and to instruct the delegation to return immediately and provide an immediate explanation to the Presidency of the Council of Representatives and hold accountable those who took such decisions.
