PM Barzani's Speech at CWC Oil and Gas Conference

Our approach is also in line with the need to help stabilize oil markets through increased production at a moment of significant international tension.

So let us not get lost in the fog of futile ideological debate. The oil and gas in the Kurdistan Region will find its way to the international markets. Our pipeline plans are moving ahead.

Here, I would like to once again warmly welcome our friends and partners whose presence here today is an important reminder of our cooperation in the fields of energy and natural resources, and this will be a support to further develop our historical and cultural relations.

Building a productive and enduring relationship with the international community, as well as our neighbours, has been a major focus of KRG policies.

Distinguished guests,

We know that security and stability are basic components of any successful investment regime. We take our responsibilities in this area very seriously.

Kurdistan has been and will remain a pillar of security within Iraq. Our security forces such as the Asayish, police and peshmerga do an excellent job in a challenging environment.

We all know the horrors that violence and extremism can bring, and the key to their success is that they have the support of our people. Our people want to live in peace and prosperity far from any kind of violence and conflict.

    Deeds on the ground iw what counts. As long as Maliki controls the pipelines and payments of oil things will go from bad to worse. The kurdish-turkish pipeline will be ready earliest 2015.
    The real nottleneck in the production gap to millions of oil barrels production is the infrastructure of Kurdistan.
    Considering that nearly nothing is produced in Kurdistan, most of the products and services needed to the infracstructure investments has to be imported.
    Professional project management at all levels and transparency could be a good start.
