"Barzani is moving today, at the domestic level to inflame differences with the government and blackmail to accept export oil in exchange for abandoning its conditions concerning the formation of the government, and on the external front moves through a secret agenda to convince countries, especially the United States to buy US oil exported from Kurdistan."
BAGHDAD / Obelisk - the looming new crisis between the central government in Baghdad and the Kurdistan Regional Government, and after the Deputy Prime Minister for Energy, the former accused the current Minister of Education, Hussein al-Shahristani, Erbil sell crude oil to suspicious destinations, including Israel, in addition to the recognition of the Government of Arbil publicly sell oil unilaterally and without taking a single ear of Baghdad.
Shahristani said in a press statement on Saturday (August 25, 2015), and followed up "obelisk", the oil exported from the territory without central government approval is oil smuggler because Iraqi oil. He pointed out that "the region has already issued oil smuggler, and sent a ship to the United States and the Israeli port of Ashkelon, and in that time the Ministry of Oil gained advocacy for the benefit of the federal government, the ship has been booked."
He noted the Iraqi official, that "there are those who give inaccurate information for leadership in the region, that they can export one million barrels." Noting that the Government of the Territory compelled to sell oil at low prices, because it is a smuggler.
The chairman of the parliamentary oil and gas, Ares Abdullah, has explicitly acknowledged to the media that the Government of the Territory began exporting oil independently, since the first of this month of July. He pointed out that the Kurdistan Regional Government is still pursuing the sale of oil independently of the federal government in spite of the presence of the federal government's attempts to contain the previous crisis.

In this regard, many observers say, that the pressure that can be exercised by Baghdad Her influence of big oil in the world, will prevent the export of oil to the countries and companies benefiting from the export and exploration of Iraq's oil, forcing Barzani to sell its oil on the black market at ridiculous prices, which cut him off in the illicit enrichment of the source of oil imports.
He added that: "The federal government has sought all means for the continuation of the oil agreement and not a violation, but the region he breaks approved by Parliament in the financial budget of the state, and the federal government to abide by the terms of the federal budget that put punitive provisions against any party in breach of the oil agreement." He pointed out that the Ministry of Oil demand, today, the establishment of lawsuits against the oil region of violating the agreement and the Constitution, and against foreign companies that buy oil holds the region without the knowledge of the federal government.
The export of oil and gas directly by the Kurdistan Regional Government to international markets, without the consent of the Federal Ministry of Oil is a clear violation of the Iraqi constitution opposed by Baghdad and is strongly.
While the federal government pays about 17% of the proceeds of Iraqi oil a year, to the Kurdistan Regional Government, they refuse to negotiate and agree the Kurdistan Regional Government directly with international oil companies, as stipulated in the oil agreement signed between the two parties.
The Iraqi Council of Ministers decided, on the second of December 2014, to approve the oil agreement between the federal government and the Kurdistan Regional Government, which provides for delivery of the Kurdistan region of at least 250 000 barrels of oil a day to the federal government for the purpose of export.
Officials say in the government of Arbil, said that Baghdad sent far less than their share of the budget monthly payments, although the region is pumped, currently, up to the agreed amount of oil.
Confessions and the Ministry of Natural Resources in the region, earlier this month, aborted Kurdish officials statements, sold about 13 million barrels of oil, during the month of June, in isolation from the federal government under the pretext of paying the expenses of oil companies in the region, which date back mostly to the Barzani family with ambitions conspiratorial.
The other dimension to the export of oil, according to analysts, is seen as a new step on the road to create a climate to achieve independence after the depletion of the wealth of Iraq in the center and south as much as possible over the quotas of the territory from the central budget, even if the export of oil from the Kurdistan settled and Azadt quantities, to about one million barrels a month early next year, the cradle of Barzani is expected to declare it to be their own state, "tribal" along the lines of the Arab Gulf states, which are governed by aristocratic families under the guise of false democracy.
Barzani is moving today, at the domestic level to inflame differences with the government and blackmail to accept export oil in exchange for abandoning its conditions concerning the formation of the government, and on the external front moves through a secret agenda to convince countries, especially the United States to buy US oil exported from Kurdistan
