Al-Jubouri said in a statement that the National Iraqi News Agency (NINA) received a copy of it, that the revenues obtained from the ports, taxes and others, have raised hopes for increasing non-oil resources, which will gradually cover an important part of the state’s operating budget, such as salaries in particular.”
