11 March Agreement

3. The European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF) may carry out investigations, including on-site checks and inspections; in accordance with the provisions and procedures of regulation (EU, Euratom) 883/2013 of the European Parliament and the Council (19) and the Regulation (Euratom, EC) No. 2185/96 (20) of the Council, which determines whether fraud, corruption or other illegal activity infringing on the Union`s financial interests is committed as part of a financial agreement or a grant decision or a contract financed under this Regulation. 4. All supplies purchased under a purchase agreement or under a support agreement and funded under this Regulation come from an eligible country. However, they may come from any country if the amount of supplies to be acquired is below the threshold for the implementation of the negotiated competitive procedure. For the purposes of this Regulation, “origin” refers to Articles 23 and 24 of Regulation (EEC) 2913/92 (21) of the Council and other ACTS of the Union relating to non-preferential origin. On the anniversary of the March 11 agreement, it is a tribute to the struggle and sacrifices of our people to obtain our legitimate rights. It also shows the conviction and faith of the people of Kurdistan in the peaceful settlement of disputes.

This agreement is also an important historical lesson for Iraqi political groups and political groups that dialogue, mutual respect and recognition of the rights of others are ultimately the only appropriate path to peace and a prosperous future. The Government has presented to Parliament, in accordance with Section 13, paragraph 1, point a), of the European Union Withdrawal Act of 2018: (i) a declaration that a political agreement has been reached; (ii) a copy of the negotiated withdrawal agreement; (iii) a copy of the framework for future relationships; (iv) a joint declaration complementing the political declaration defining the framework for future relations; v) a unilateral declaration; and vi) an instrument linked to the withdrawal agreement. After his return to Baghdad, the Vice-President announced that he had not agreed on a ceasefire or ceasefire, but on a “total and final” settlement of the Kurdish question. 2. The Commission or its representatives and the Court of Auditors have the power to carry out an audit or, in the case of international organisations, to carry out a review on the basis of documents and on the field of all fellows, contractors and subcontractors who have received EU funds under this Regulation, in accordance with the agreements reached with them. A statement from the Government confirms that a political agreement has been reached on the withdrawal agreement and on the framework for the future relationship between the UK and the EU and presents these documents to Parliament.
