A member of the Parliamentary Oil and Natural Resources Committee, Kazem Al-Touki, confirmed, on Sunday, that the Turkish side has used the policy of pressure on Baghdad in order to push it towards achieving its goals, including pushing Iraq to confront the opposition parties to Ankara in the north of the country.
Al-Touki told Al-Maalouma, "Turkey is practicing an unfair policy towards Iraq in terms of its continuation of military operations and bombing on Iraqi lands, as well as cutting off water and drying up rivers without justification."
He added, "Turkey is pressuring the Iraqi side to stand up against the opposing parties in the north of the country, and is practicing some methods related to the water file as well as oil, with the aim of implementing its demands and achieving its goals."
And he indicated that "the suspension of oil exports towards Turkish territory and the port of Ceyhan prompted the Iraqi government to search for other alternatives to extract this oil."
Al-Touki indicated that "quantities of Iraqi oil were directed to Jordan, and the rest of them went to the internal refineries." End 25n
