Agreement Reached with Erbil to Resume Kirkuk Oil Exports: Abadi

ERBIL — The governments of Kurdistan Region and Iraq have agreed on resuming the flow of Kirkuk oil export to Turkey’s Ceyhan port after months of suspension, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said.

“It was agreed with the Kurdish side to start exporting oil from Kirkuk,” Abadi confirmed during a weekly press conference in Baghdad, as reported by Reuters.

However, he did not provide further details on any timeline.

According to the Iraqi premier, Baghdad has already started talks with Erbil and Ankara over the issue, and negations are ongoing.
