Baghdad, June 10, 2014
Iraq's oil minister on Monday condemned the export of pipeline crude from Iraqi Kurdistan and threatened the region and Turkey, its point of export, with severe measures.
"What happened in my view was the biggest mistake that has been made by the Kurds and the Turks...and the Iraqi government will take severe measures," Abdul Kareem Luaibi told a news briefing.
He repeated that Baghdad would sue the Turkish government and Turkish pipeline operator Botas over the issue. - Reuters
