The Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), Nechirvan Barzani (pictured), has said that the policy of his government is to achieve self-sufficiency in fuel and electricity generation.
He said that the Baghdad government is cutting Kurdistan’s share from the fuel produced at the Iraqi refineries.
“Therefore, in these two fields we will have our independence and will provide the demand of the [Kurdistan] region,” Barzani said.
Kurdistan and Baghdad accuse each other of smuggling oil and dealing improperly with oil revenues.
