[rtl]Baghdad - Iraq today:
The Iraqi Oil Minister, Hayan Abdul Ghani, revealed that the earthquake events on the sixth of last February called on Turkey to stop exporting the oil of the Kurdistan region, stressing the importance of all parties' commitment to the oil agreement between Baghdad and Erbil.
This came during his hosting by the Parliamentary Oil, Gas and Natural Resources Committee, headed by Representative Haibat al-Halbousi, head of the committee.
Hayan Abdul Ghani, pointed out that "there is an agreement between the federal government and the Kurdistan Regional Government regarding the export of oil through the (SOMO) company so that there is no difference in prices."
Regarding the reasons for stopping the export of oil, he mentioned that "the reasons for stopping the oil export from the Turkish side are after the earthquakes that took place in Turkey recently, which prompted the Turkish side to stop it so that the specialized company can examine and confirm its safety.”
The Iraqi Oil Minister stressed "the importance of the commitment of all parties to the agreement on the issue of exporting crude oil from the Kurdistan region, which is determined as the lowest export rate by (400) thousand barrels per day."
He pointed out that "compensation is now being made by increasing crude oil production by the Basra Oil Company until work is resumed to export oil from the Kurdistan region."[/rtl]
