Today, Wednesday, the Al-Fatah Alliance explained the reasons for the Kurdistan Region’s attempt to control some of Kirkuk’s lands, as well as the latest developments in the oil and gas law.
The leader of the coalition, Ali Al-Zubaidi, said in an interview with the Maalouma Agency, “The Kurdistan Regional Government is always trying to impose its control over some of the lands of Kirkuk, in order to seize control of the oil fields located in these areas.”
He added, "The regional authorities took control of some oil wells in Kirkuk during the period of the terrorist ISIS and continued to obtain their wealth, despite their ownership of the federal government."
Regarding the oil and gas law, Al-Zubaidi stressed that “the law needs political consensus between the various parties in order to mature it and proceed with its legislation within Parliament,” pointing out that “the law needs some time before voting on it.”
The leader of the Al-Amiri coalition explained, “The government seeks to make the oil and gas law for the benefit of all of Iraq and for everyone to benefit from it without benefiting one governorate over another, including the governorates of the Kurdistan region.”
Earlier, a report by the American newspaper Al-Monitor warned that the long-disputed, oil-rich city of Kirkuk would be exposed to civil war if the Kurdish parties entered, especially with the local elections approaching in just three months.
The Kurdistan Democratic Party continues its attempts to control some areas in Kirkuk Governorate, the most recent of which is the advanced headquarters of the Joint Operations Command, which ignited a great strife, which the government was able to extinguish with wisdom and understanding. End/25 R
