Iraq Stopped Oil Export to Iran
Under the pressure of economic sanctions imposed on Iran by United States Iraq stopped the oil exports to Iran.
It is reported that the shipment of crude oil from Iraq to Kirkuk will be stopped in the framework of US sanctions. Iraqi authorities transferred Iraq’s Kirkuk oil to Iran via tractor trucks, and then forwarded oil exports to Iraq via the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG).
Iraq agreed with the KRG and said that Kirkuk’s oil is to be sent to Turkey via pipeline. Prime Minister of the new government established in Iraq, Adil Abdülmedi, talked in a statement about the US sanction decision on Iran, emphasizing that it would act within the framework of Iraq’s interests.
