She added, "The arbitration case filed by the Republic of Iraq against the Republic of Turkey for violating the provisions of the Iraqi-Turkish pipeline agreement signed in 1973, which stipulates that the Turkish government must comply with the instructions of the Iraqi side regarding the movement of crude oil exported from Iraq to all storage and disposal centers and the final station."
