Turkey Assures Iraq Over Oil Exports
From Daily News
Energy Minister Taner Yıldız has assured Baghdad over oil exports from the Kurdish region to Turkey, rejecting claims that oil has been exported without the consent of the central government.
Iraq has threatened to boycott Turkish companies and cancel contracts after the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) last month announced its first shipment of crude sent directly to Turkey, without passing through pipelines controlled by Baghdad, had gone on sale, with more expected to follow.
Baghdad argues that all oil sales must be overseen by the central government and regards any independent exports tantamount to smuggling.
